‘Career Girl’ Abortions On The Rise

The topic of abortion in Great Britain has only seen grim news recently, and things are only getting worse with a new report that “career girl” abortions are on the rise.

The number of women having abortions between the ages of 25 and 29 has risen 20 percent in the past ten years. The Daily Mail reported:


Commenting on the figures, the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas) suggested the increase in the 25-29 age bracket may ‘reflect the ongoing trend towards women postponing motherhood until they feel in the position to become a parent’.

The average age of first time motherhood in the UK is now over 28, the highest in the developed world.
