One in four pregnancies now end in abortion in England and Wales

The Times reported:

“The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said that the share of women who choose abortion is now more than a quarter for the first time as the number rose for the second year in a row.

Figures released this week showed that 25.2 per cent of conceptions in England and Wales ended in abortion in 2019, up from 24 per cent the previous year…

The figures showed that the number of pregnancies ending in abortion went up among all age groups in 2019.

Ten years ago just over a fifth of pregnancies ended in abortion. For women in the second half of their 30s, the proportion of pregnancies ending in abortion has gone up by almost a third over the past decade…

Possible reasons for the rise in the numbers include avoiding disruption to career or lifestyle, or uncertainty about the relationship with the father of the child.”
