Reading the UK Metro newspaper on the Tube this morning, I found this interesting article “Repeat abortion rate up to 1 in 4”. Telling quote from the article:
“Terminations on girls under 14 were up by 20 per cent to 163, and 4, 376 abortions were carried out on under-16s”.
Now, for comparison purposes, let’s turn our attention to the US: US probes teen “pregnancy pact”:
There are reports that some of the girls – none of whom is older than 16 – entered into a pact to have their babies together.
“Some girls seemed more upset when they weren’t pregnant than when they were,” Gloucester High School principal Joseph Sullivan told Time magazine.
I am not sure which article I have a greater reaction to.
