PMC was founded in the United States in 1998. The US has a population of more than 321 million and its current annual rate of growth will double the population in 97 years if left unchanged.
PMC broadcast a serial drama on hulu.com, East Los High, that consistently ranked as one of the most popular programs on Hulu. It was the first Hollywood production to feature an all Latino cast and resulted in more than 25,000 people using planned parenthood widgets to find out if they should be tested for sexually transmitted infections or for pregnancy in its first month of broadcast. PMC has also reached large numbers of Americans in major media markets through advocacy projects, such as the worldwide Global Population Speak Out campaign and PMC’s Population News Strategy that has placed population experts on radio stations across the US for 2000+ syndicated broadcasts.

The United States is the third most populous country in the world in 2011. The annual population growth rate is 0.78 percent, which left unchanged means that in 20 years the US will add over 53 million more people. As such, the United States comprises five percent of the world’s population, but the United States consumes 20 percent of the world’s resources. The United States continues to need to address issues such as income inequality, nutrition, and teenage pregnancy. It is estimated that as many as 50 percent of pregnancies in the United States are unintended.
