Three million unwanted babies in Bengal by 2021

KOLKATA: With West Bengal estimated to add nearly 12.7 million people to its population by 2021, a whopping three million of those would be a result of unwanted/unplanned pregnancies, an expert said on Tuesday.

"Judging by the estimates of the current census, the state’s population will go to 104 million people from 91.3 million. Of this additional population of 12.7 million, nearly three million babies will be result of unwanted and unplanned pregnancy," said Devendra Kothari of the Rajiv Gandhi Population Mission of the Rajasthan government.source:
