A call for a more comprehensive system of sex education and post-abortion counseling in China to help prevent unintended pregnancies has been made by reproductive health experts.

According to the National Health and Family Planning Commission, the abortion rate in China fell from 2.9 percent in 1994 to 1.8 percent in 2001. However, no noticeable drop was reported during the next decade.

Liu Liqing, founding country director of Marie Stopes, one of the world's largest reproductive health charities, said, "Government-supported contraceptives in China have been well promoted among married people. But unmarried people need more attention."
