- 5,300 teenagers who have abortions in England and Wales have already had one previously
- 4 of those 5,300 had their 6th, 14 had their 5th and 57 had their 4th
- Figures suggest many girls use abortion as a form of contraception
I know this is getting a bit close to religious views for anyones liking, including mine, so let's examine a different fact, also involved with the strange mentalities that seem to have spawned within our generation, and grown in the generations since. Babies. I know some women who are onto their second or even third child....others who, for some reason, only want to have a child as soon as possible for themselves already. Bear in mind, most of these women are of the same age as me, some I know of, are even younger. I don't know where the mindset came from that we must procreate so quickly and early in life, that we must rush into such a life-changing event without much forethought.
I could go on forever about so many other things...binge drinking, drugs, smoking, unemployment and the "now generation" (as aptly described the Black Eyed Peas' song) mindsets that all seem to have overtaken the vast proportion of my age-group and the children that have followed, but It would be too long and boring to read. Or write for that matter, so I'll leave it at that, in mild shock.
