And people want to limit access to contraception because…?
Yay! This shows that there are fewer unintended pregnancies, and that more people are getting pregnant on their terms. This translates to postponed pregnancies, since more people are getting pregnant in their 30s and 40s.
According to the new study by the National Center for Health Statistics, pregnancy rates for people ages 20-24 have fallen nearly 18%. A Guttmacher study found that the teen pregnancy rate was down 42% from 1990 to 2008, and the teen abortion rate decreased 59% from 1988 to 2008.
I bet if more insurers covered contraception, the number of unintended pregnancies would decrease even further.
