The British Department of Health reports that abortions rose by about 700 in 2005 compared with statistics from 2004. The number of abortions in England and Wales shot up to 186,416 in 2005 from 185,713 in 2004. Repeat abortions are on the rise as well and nearly one-third of British women having an abortion in 2005 have had at least one abortion before. While 31 percent of all women had an abortion before, about 43 percent of black British women had at least one abortion previously. Teenagers are also having more abortions as more than 1,000 girls under the age of 15 had an abortion, an increase of 4.7 percent over the previous year. The new figures come at a time when the British parliament is considering a debate on limiting late-term abortions and not allowing abortions as long as 24 weeks into pregnancy.
Girls under 15 are having sex and abortions??? There is something seriously wrong. Education, abstinence education, has to begin in the family. These girls could develop serious diseases and ruin their lives. Many of them have already killed a life because of their poor actions.
This is serious and very upsetting.
