Segment 4 – Guttmacher Misleads on Recent Unintended-Pregnancy Declines
“Late last month, the Guttmacher Institute released new data in the academic journal Demography on pregnancy rates and pregnancy desires for the years 2009 to 2015. The data showed an increasing percentage of women who said that their pregnancies occurred at the right time. The data also showed decreases in the unintended-pregnancy rate and increases in the rate of pregnancies that occurred later than planned.”  Michael New has written on this and explains today.  (Originally aired May 18, 2023)
