New abortion figures represent "bonanza" for private abortion sector
1 June 2012
Figures issued by the Department of Health indicate that in 2011 there were almost 190,000 registered abortions on resident women in England and Wales.
A further 6,000 abortions were registered on non-residents.
Paul Tully of SPUC commented: "The statistics also represent an increasing bonanza for the private abortion sector, as their share of the abortion market increases and more NHS money flows into their coffers.
"They are looking to widen their market further by promoting flawed birth control practices and by promoting abortion as a normal part of people's sexual health needs." [SPUC, 29 May]
