    Default Irish abortions in UK statistics & graphs (2011) - teen pregnancy miniscule incidence

    Irish abortion statistics in Great Britain 2011 - Visualised | Langphil

    Abortion activists are constantly moaning about unwanted teen pregnancies, how abortion ruins the lives of kids etc., and keeps the working class in penury.

    These graphs cast some doubt on this:

    • The majority of foreign abortions in UK are Irish
    • The overwhelming majority of abortion seekers are within the 20-29 age rannge
    • Even the number of abortion seekers aged +40 greatly exceed those aged 16-17, let alone <16
    • Probably less than 40-50 Irish abortion seekers aged <16 in UK


    Abortion-on-demand as a lifestyle choice. Not in my country.

    It's possible that the +40 age cohort could be due to foetal abnormality?

    Apparently if you want an abortion because your baby is incompatible with life, that's just a lifestyle choice.
    Repeal the 27th.

    It's just the inevitable result of "consequence free" sex.

    I dont beleive any sexual activity is "consequence free", but hey if it please you we can always add a few.

    could be, but that might be just guessing on your part, we need to know what % were wanted versus unwanted at the time of conception?
