Where are we going?

Quoted from the Telegraph article on the fact that 89 girls aged 17 or under had their third abortion last year,

Ann Furedi, the chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, said repeated pregnancies among teenage girls were often caused by chaotic lifestyles and difficulties they had in using contraception.

She said: “With teenage girls, often they feel able to handle sex, emotionally and physically, yet aren’t able to handle the planning that comes with contraception.”

Note that they 'feel' able to handle sex etc... The fact that they are clearly mistaken in that feeling - and wrecking their lives (not to mention ending their babies' lives) is clearly of no concern at all to Ann Furedi - after all BPAS makes no money from kids who don't have abortions...

What can one do?

Prayer, fasting and alms-giving, I guess...

Rather more shocking was the statistic that a third of all abortions performed on babies in this country last year (i.e. over 80,000) were for mothers who had previously had an abortion. The implication made for years by abortion advocates has been that abortion is a rare event in any woman's life and is only resorted to in desperate circumstances. Well, with that level of repeat abortions, clearly not!
