Contraceptive Use on the Decline among the Poor

According to a report by Guttmacher Institute there is a decrease in the use of contraception among the poor women. This has led to increasing unwanted pregnancy and abortions. // During the mid 1980’s there was an effort made to reduce the increasing abortion rates but the current situation has worsened the condition. Sharon L. Camp, the president of the institute, said that there is an increase from 7% to 11% of non users of contraception at the same time they do not want to get pregnant. Both the women under poverty line and better off women were not using contraception. The number of white women not using contraception increased to 9 % from 7 %.

In case of Hispanic women and blacks it was increased to 12 % and 15 % respectively. The rate of unintended pregnancies, which had previously declined has now leveled off. The researchers blamed reductions in federally and state-financed family planning programs for declining contraceptive use. They called for public and private insurance to cover contraceptives, and for over-the-counter access to the morning-after pill. The statistics revealed by the Guttmacher study said that there are totally three million pregnancies in the US. About 50% of these are unintended and the rest are carried to term from which 14,000 women put the children up for adoption, and 1.3 million have abortions. This is a very sad sate and some efforts have to be pumped in order to increase the contraceptive use and decline abortions.
