British Abortion Rates Rise

While abortions decline in America and many other nations, abortion rates are drastically rising in England. I appeal to all pro-life, British citizens to stand up for life. Write to your elected officials, pray at abortion clinics and pro-life events, and pray for the protection of the unborn. LIFE, is a leading British pro-life charity worth supporting.

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.

Hello Moneybags,
I'm not sure if you've heard of Priests for Life or not, I found out about them just today. They are a pro-life priest group. They also have some very graphic images of aborted babies on their website, allowing people to see how terrible abortion is. If only more people knew how terrible abortion is.

God Bless you and yours.

Hello, Anonymous:

Yes, I have heard of Priests for Life. The leader for them is Fr. Frank Pavone, who occassionally appears on EWTN.

When "Roe" from Roe v. Wade repented for her actions in the early 1990's, she asked the Supreme Court to reverse its decision. They declined. So, she works everyday of her life, full time, seeking to have that decision reversed.

When she entered the Catholic Church in, I believe, 1998, Fr. Frank Pavone was the one that brought her into the Church at the Mass.

Priests for Life is a great organization. They show abortion what it really looks like. If people saw what abortion is, far less people would suppor it.

Thank you for your words, anonymous.
