40% of pregnant teens didn’t tell parents about their abortions

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion research group, only 60% of pregnant teens tell their parents about their abortions.

This means that 40% of teens never notify their parents that they have had abortions.

This research is from the 1990′s, so it may not be accurate as of today (2018)
