About

Unwanted pregnancies are not only the major cause of maternal mortality and morbidity but are also a great social and financial burden on societies and countries. According to World-health-organization statistics, there are an estimated 200 million pregnancies around the world each year, and a third of these, 75 million, are unwanted. Unintended pregnancy also is a major health problem in the United States of America. In the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth assessment, 1.22 million, or 31%, were reported as unintended. When abortions were included, unintended pregnancies increased to 2.65 million, or 49% of all pregnancies
