Abstract

The US problems of high unintended pregnancy and abortion can be successfully addressed with a systems approach that focuses on reducing barriers to contraception and improving opportunities to expand access. The ability to reduce unintended pregnancy depends on making family planning services available to all. A comprehensive approach requires policy change to improve funding for and access to family planning, to provide comprehensive sex education and to reduce insurance and religious barriers to contraceptives.
