47% Of Pregnancies in Costa Rica Are Unintended

One of the concerns that exists today in Costa Rica, according to Oscar Valverde, reproductive health officer of the United Nationals Population Fund (UNFPA), is that 47% of Costa Rican women are having unintended pregnancies and 11.7% do not have adequate access to contraceptives.

The UNFPA includes the statistics in its World Population 2012 report.

The report also reveals that some 222 million women worldwide do not have the right to family planning.

According to the report, at the end of 2012 were will be about 80 million unintended pregnancies among women living in developing countries. The report warns that about half of these pregnancies will end in abortion.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, for example, unsafe abortions result in over 1.000 deaths and 500.000 hospitalizations of women.
