On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would take up the abortion case National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Xavier Becerra. The legal brief for Becerra — which defends a California law mandating crisis pregnancy centers post information about abortion — stated an eye-popping figure.
According to the State of California, more than half of pregnancies in the state are unintended.
“Some 700,000 California women become pregnant each year, and over half of these pregnancies are unintended,” the brief states. Let that sink in: More than half of the pregnancies in California are unintended. That means an estimated 350,000 unwanted children are conceived annually, in the nation’s most populous state.
