'It's mostly teenagers who have abortions'

Every Monday EFC busts myths and takes names, cutting through the misinformation, disinformation, and straight up nonsense to bring you the facts.

Actually, women of all ages have abortions. Women have abortions for a variety of reasons at different points in their lives. In fact, the largest number of abortions are requested by women aged 19-24. There are actually more abortions performed each year for women over 45 than there are for young women under 17. Every year the Department of Health publishes detailed information on abortions that take place in England and Wales.
