Survey says...

This is really scary to me:

More American women are having babies they didn't want, a survey indicates, but federal researchers say they don't know if that means attitudes about abortion are changing.

U.S. women of childbearing age who were surveyed in 2002 revealed that 14 percent of their recent births were unwanted at the time of conception, federal researchers said Monday.

In a similar 1995 survey, only 9 percent were unwanted at the time of conception. [link]

I know to take surveys with a grain of salt, but I wonder what this implies about sex education. Are these young women and men getting educated?
