Don't skim-

• 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]

You know what's strange? All of the most recent data I can find is from the same 2009 CDC report.

Anyways, that report confirms my numbers-

According to the most recent national estimates, nearly one fifth of all pregnancies in the United States end in abortion.

But here's something that might explain the data. You don't even have to click on it to see what it's about- just read the link.
