Since the passing of the Abortion Act in 1967 in the UK (with the
exception of Northern Ireland) there have been six million abortions.
Even more shocking, the number of abortions in the UK is rising
year-on-year and the age of women seeking abortions is getting younger.
Pragmatism about abortion and a growing disregard for the sanctity of
human life have permeated society to its core – abortion is seen as just
another form of birth control.
This readable and up-to-the-minute booklet informs readers of the latest
research on abortion – abortion and disability; abortion and its
psychological and physical effect on women’s health, particularly its
link with breast cancer; the promotion of chemical abortions; and the
stories of inspiring women such as Norma McCorvey. It will help
individuals and groups understand how to influence public policy and how
best to aid those most at risk. A useful list of names and addresses is
included in the appendix.
