Does poverty lead to unintended pregnancies?

The poorest women are increasingly likely to face unintended pregnancies

Between 1994 and 2001, the rate of unintended pregnancy increased by 29% among U.S. women whose income was below the poverty line, while it decreased 20% among women with incomes at least twice the federal poverty level.
