In the UK, abortions increase to one almost every three minutes
The Christian Institute
Nearly 200,000 unborn babies were aborted in England and Wales in 2017, latest official figures show – that’s one approximately every three minutes.
Over 3,000 abortions were due to the “risk” of disability. Women aged between 20 and 24 accounted for the highest abortion rate.
Pro-life organisations have responded with deep concern at the statistics, with one saying that women need a better outcome than abortion.
Government statistics, released last month, showed a 2.3 per cent overall rise in the number of abortions that took place in England and Wales in 2017.
It was also shown that:
– 98 per cent of abortions were funded by taxpayers through the NHS;
– 9 in 10 abortions were carried out before 13 weeks – around 4 in five were under 10 weeks;
– 3,158 abortions were undertaken due to the risk of a baby being born “seriously handicapped”;
– Nearly 40 per cent of women who had an abortion in 2017 had previously had one.
Clare Plasom-Scott of the Life charity cautioned that: “Each abortion represents a personal crisis for a woman who is so desperate she believes the ending of the life of her child is the only viable option.”
She noted that “every abortion ends the life of an unborn child” and said the organisation would continue to be “providing a voice for the unborn and care and support which women in crisis need and deserve”.
Philippa Taylor, Head of Public Policy at the Christian Medical Fellowship, drew out the startling statistic that one abortion took place every 2.7 minutes.
She said the numbers of repeat abortions showed some women were using it as a form of contraceptive.
