Official figures suggest that there has been a slight increase in abortion in Northern Ireland. 92 women had abortions in 2008, whereas 79 women had abortions in 2007. [BBC, 10 November] Liam Gibson of SPUC Northern Ireland commented: "Even a slight increase in the number of abortions is a matter of grave concern since every abortion means the death of a child."
