The pro-life movement is sometimes scoffed at by abortion activists when it points out that abortion is mostly used for birth control reasons. Here’s a report that provides more confirmation that that’s the case.
A British schoolgirl had her fourth abortion in 2012, figures today revealed. She is one of 200 teenage girls who have had repeat abortions before the age of 16.
The figures show five girls had three abortions by the time of their sweet 16 birthday, which is the legal age of consent in England. That means abortion practitioners are doing abortions on girls who are victims of statutory rape and, as is the case in the United States, they may not be reporting those rapes to authorities.
Here’s more on these tragic repeat abortions:
In 2011, a total of 84 under-16s had abortions for a second time or more, according to the Department of Health figures obtained by The Sun.
Last night, Norman Wells, of the Family Education Trust, said too many teenagers were having sex without thinking about the consequences.
Too many are being taught that they have a right to sex without consequences and are free to dispose of any unborn child that threatens their lifestyle,’ he said.
Last year, 185,331 British women of all age groups had terminations. Of these, 50 were treated for a staggering nine abortions of more.

Earlier this year, a 13-year-old schoolgirl was given the right to choose whether to have an abortion by a High Court judge.
Mr Justice Mostyn ruled that the youngster was capable of making up her own mind as to whether or not to keep the child.
The teenager, who lives with her parents, only realised she was pregnant when her grandmother spotted her growing bump and took her for medical tests.
