42 percent of unintended pregnancies end in abortion and about half of all pregnancies are unintended.

It's more like 22 percent not including miscarriages.

The report you are quoting is from 2006, from the same website:

http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html

• At least half of American women will experience an unintended pregnancy by age 45, and, at current rates, one in 10 women will have an abortion by age 20, one in four by age 30 and three in 10 by age 45.[4,5]
