The Christian Post – New government data show nearly a third of pregnancies among women age 20 – 24 in England and Wales resulted in abortions in 2017. The finding comes from data published by the UK’s Office for National Studies.
It also found 33-percent of pregnancies for women age 20-25 end in abortion. That number is up slightly from 2016. Overall, 23-percent of conceptions in women of all ages in England and Wales resulted in an abortion.
This represents an increase of about one-percent from 2016, and a 6.5-percent increase since 1997. The data show a rise in the number of abortions for pregnant women in all age groups, except for girls ages 16 and under.
