The IUD revolution VOX
Delaware has the highest unintended pregnancy rate in the country — 62 per every 1,000 women between 15 and 44. Fifty-seven percent of the pregnancies in the state are unintentional.

Forrest Watson, the clinic's executive director and founder, estimates that about half of his patients' pregnancies are unplanned.
