New tool shows 47 percent of South Dakota pregnancies unintended

Posted: Updated:

A new report shows almost half of South Dakota's pregnancies are unintended.

On Dec. 18, Guttmacher Institute released a new tool offering more than two dozen state-specific indicators related to unintended pregnancy.

According to Guttmacher Institute, 47 percent of South Dakota's pregnancies were unintended in 2006, with a national average of 49 percent.

Also in 2006, 72 percent of South Dakota's unintended pregnancies resulted in births, and the abortion rate was 13 percent.

KSFY News has called Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota for comment. No one was available for immediate comment. Check back later for any updates.
