In total 1,047 young people aged either 14 or younger had an abortion in 2009 the figures show, a slight drop on the previous year
The figures were released just a day after the first advert for abortion was shown on British television.
It also follows a recommendation that teenagers and other young women be encouraged to stockpile the morning after pill at home in case of emergencies by the National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (Nice), the Governments public health body.
There were 3,823 abortions performed on under 16s, and 17,916 on under-18s last year, the statistics, released by the Department of Health, show, also a slight fall on the previous year.
One in three women having a termination, including 1,341 under-18s, had already had at least one abortion.
Another 2,637 women had had three previous abortions, while 779 had had four, 214 had had five and 48 women had had seven or more abortions.

No recommendations that men stay away from underage girls?
No, a chemical assault and a murder would be preferable than requiring that these vermin control themselves.
Yes, I know, some of the “men” are minors themselves.
But I’ll bet dollars to dimes that MOST AREN’T.
I worked in a crisis pregnancy center for too many years to believe any differently.
One MAJOR function of abortion on demand is to cover for statutory rapists.
So by that rationale, the Progressives have been courting the Muslims since the 30s with the plan of eventual choking of the Christian world? I’d actually believe that seeing what sort of bullshyt is coming out of DC these days.
Another brain-dead idea from godless socialists. The morning after pill isn't going to do a thing to stop the increasing rates of teen STDs in the UK.
