Saturday - 10/20/2012, 1:34pm EDT
(AP) - Nearly 1 million women get abortions every year. Most say they made that choice because they couldn't afford a baby or having one would interfere with a job, caring for existing children or other responsibilities.
Who are these women?

_Most are unmarried, in their 20s and 30s; 18 percent are teens.
