Unplanned Pregnancies

It is estimated that one million unmarried girls age nineteen and under get pregnant every year:

Only about 15% of these pregnancies are wanted.

About 85 % of these pregnancies are not wanted.

About 50% of them end in births (includes babies adopted).

About 33% end in abortion.

Less than 2% end in miscarriage.

If you or a friend is an adolescent, unmarried, and unintentionally pregnant, you may be overwhelmed with all kinds of feelings, questions, and decisions that need to be made. This series of blogs will help you work through that pain and what lies ahead.
