"Our science tells us there is a unique, never to exist again, human individual in a mother's womb. Why, in America, have we come to the place where we can kill that individual to solve our problems?"

-- Raymond Ufford, M.D.

 
Birth Control Use Data for Teen and Young Adult Females, 1995 PDF Print E-mail

According to the National Center for Health Statistics, Vital and Health Statistics Division data for 1995:

  15-19 year olds 20-24 year olds
Pill 13% 33%
Condom 10.9% 16.7%
No Contraceptives 70.2% 36.6%
Never had intercourse 49.8% 12.1%

Of 9.7 million women using "coitis-dependent contraceptives"  [i.e. barrier birth control methods such as the condom] in the 3 months prior to the interview, about 33% -- over 3 million -- used them inconsistently. An even higher percentage of teens using these methods reported inconsistent use -- 38%. The highest percentage of any group of women reporting inconsistent use was in the 20-24 year old group -- almost 42%.

9% of sexually active teens under age 16 are using the pill; 33.6% of these teens use condoms.

Nearly 30% of all women who had intercourse in the 3 months prior to the interview and used the pill as the only contraceptive method, reported missing a pill at least once during the cycle. [Table 45]
