0.005% of abortions in England were done for risk to woman’s life

The following was cited in “ABORTION A Briefing Book For Canadian Legislators” Campaign Life Coalition NATIONAL PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE July 2002

“The British Hansard Written Answers of July 1, 1987 discloses that of 2.6 million abortions carried out in England and Wales between 1968 and 1986, 123 (or .005 percent) were performed to save the life of the mother.”

Many doctors, including abortionists, have said that abortion is never needed to save the life of a woman.
