New abortion statistics for England and Wales “a national disgrace”

Highest number since 1968

Britain’s Society for the Protection of Unborn Children describes today’s abortion figures as “a national disgrace”. Unfortunately, SPUC is anything but exaggerating.

Antonia Tully, SPUC Director of Campaigns, says “209,519 unborn children were aborted in England and Wales in 2019; the highest number since the Abortion Act came into force in April 1968.”

Tully commented, “We are looking at a national tragedy here. This appalling figure shows us that abortion is becoming more and more normalised. Propaganda telling women that abortion is ‘simple and safe’ coupled with easier access to abortion pills is driving up abortion numbers.”

He added, “Behind each statistic is a dead baby.”

The report, produced by the Department for Health and Social Care, is a devastating indictment  of how poor women of color undergo more than twice the number of abortions than their percentage of the population.  SPUC reports

According to the new statistics, women living in the most deprived areas in England and Wales were more likely to have abortions than women living in the least deprived areas.

According to the most recent census from England and Wales, the black community in Britain was reported as 3.4% of the population. Shockingly, the 2019 abortion statistics reveal how 8% of women presenting for abortions in England and Wales recorded their ethnicity as black.

The new report graphically illustrates how widespread chemical abortions (“medication abortion,” in the parlance of the Abortion Industry) are: nearly three-quarters [73%]!

As we have written on many occasions, the infamous “Ground E” paints a bulls-eye on any unborn baby diagnosed with an anomaly. According to  SPUC

3,183 unborn children were killed under Ground E

66% of Ground E abortions were performed at 15 weeks and over.

275 of the abortions carried out under Ground E took place after 24 weeks.

If that weren’t awful enough,126 “selective terminations were carried out” in 2019.  Selective terminations “involve killing unborn children in the womb if there is more than one.”

“This is an increase from 111 in 2018.”
