Abortion rates are rising in the UK for teens. Pro-life or pro-choice, I’m not sure anyone sees this kind of thing as a grand success. Unless you are Dawn Primaloo, Health Minister, whose priority is decreasing wait times:
Our priority is to reduce the time women have to wait for an abortion at what is already a very difficult time for them. These statistics show that we have made considerable progress in this, with over two-thirds of women having their abortion at under ten weeks in 2007, up from half in 2002.
Bravo, Dawn, bravo.
Rebecca adds: If only she were as eager to decrease waits for surgeries or to see specialists. You know, actually providing health care.
