Each year in the United States, there are approximately 6.7 million pregnancies. Of these, roughly half are unintended. More than a third of all unintended pregnancies end in abortion. As a result, approximately 1 million women in the United States have an abortion each year.
Unmarried women are five times as likely as married women to terminate an unintended pregnancy with an abortion. Women living below the poverty line are five times more likely than higher-income women to have an unintended pregnancy, and poor women have 40 percent of all abortions.
