The Colorado Family Planning Initiative provided low-income women with IUDs and other implants at 68 clinics across the state. The program has been funded by an anonymous donor for the past five years.
The statistics: From 2009 to 2013, the teen birth rate dropped by 40% in Colorado. The teen abortion rate in counties served by the 68 clinics went down by 35% from 2009 to 2012. It all added up to a savings of $42.5 million of public funds in 2010 alone, according to the state.
