“The number of abortions among girls aged under 16 rose by 10% to 4,376 in 2007, official figures for England and Wales show.
In the under 14s, abortions rose by 21% from 135 in 2006 to 163 last year.
The number of abortions in all women rose by 2.5% with the highest rate in those aged 19 years.”
What is going wrong with these young girls? Are we not getting the sex education across to them, or are we teaching them the wrong thing?
The article goes on to say we need better contraception services for young people, which also makes me sad, because it’s such a shame that young girls are so keen to grow up, and enter the world of sex.
