Only 1 in 5 women with unplanned pregnancies don’t accept child by pregnancy’s end

One researcher said:

“Not all unplanned pregnancies are undesired, nor do they necessarily produce unwanted children. Studies… have suggested that whereas possibly a majority of women who have not first planned to conceive experience feelings of grief or anger when they become pregnant, less than one in five remains disappointed and unaccepting throughout the course of the pregnancy.”
