Seaman (Reuters Health) – Training staffers at reproductive health clinics to educate women about birth control options ultimately cut pregnancy rates in half, according to a new study. "Our impetus for doing this study is that unintended pregnancy has been extremely high in the U.S. for decades," said Cynthia Harper, the study's lead author from the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University of California, San Francisco. "The unwanted pregnancies are concentrated among young women 18 to 25," she said.
