Nearly a quarter of babies are aborted in England and Wales, shocking new statistics reveal.
Excluding stillbirths and miscarriages, 23.8% of pregnancies were cut short by abortions in 2018.
While there were 657,076 live births last year, 205,295 unborn babies were killed—meaning that for every three babies born, there was one abortion.
Despite claims from activists that “criminalizing abortion does not stop abortions,” the number has risen dramatically since the 1967 Abortion Act came into force in England and Wales.
In 1969, the first full year for which data was available, 6.4% of pregnancies ended in abortion. This represents a 270% increase over the last 50 years.
In Northern Ireland, the figure is much lower, as 1 in 20 pregnancies were ended by abortions last year.
Almost all of these abortions took place among those who traveled to England or Wales, as Northern Ireland’s strong pro-life laws only permit abortion in cases where the mother’s life is at risk.
