Richer Girls 'more Likely To Have An Abortion' If They Fall Pregnant Under Age

Recommended Posts

Under-age girls who become pregnant are most likely to have an abortion if they live in prosperous areas, figures show.

In some of the wealthiest parts of the country four out of five under-age pregnancies end in an abortion, but in poorer areas under-age girls are twice as likely to keep their child.

Experts say it is the aspirations of well-off families that lead to a higher abortion rate, as girls opt not to miss out on their education.

In poorer regions where underage pregnancy is perceived as ‘less of a problem’ fewer abortions are carried out as a result.

In the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and in Epping Forest in Essex 83 per cent of pregnancies among girls under 16 ended in an abortion, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics.

In Elmbridge in Surrey, which is nicknamed the Beverly Hills of Britain, the figure was 80 per cent.

In Blackpool 34 per cent of pregnancies among under 16s ended with an abortion while in Bolsover in Derbyshire it was 39 per cent and in Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales 44 per cent.

Commenting on the figures, Professor David Paton, of Nottingham University Business School, said: ‘If you are expecting to go to college, you are more likely to want to avoid pregnancy.

Wow how shocking is this. In poorer areas girls see a baby as an aspiration as it secures a house and income, where as higher income groups know they can secure a higher income and a house via education and work. If you want to be a bit more cynical the higher income girls know they stand a better chance of catching a high income partner if they avoid having a child and get an education.

To be honest it's hard to break the cycle, next we'll see a report highlighting low income areas do worse in education then higher income areas.

Could it be....dare I say it...that richer areas are populated by more intelligent people? ph34r.gif

Of course, if they were that intelligent they wouldn't get pregnant in the first place.rolleyes.gif

Nor would they have abortions if they did. What could be more obviously dysgenic?

Wouldn't have thought a coat hanger was that expensive.

In all seriousness though the poor people don't have abortions because they planned to get pregnant so they can drain the welfare system.
