Abortion in Britain

The rest of the world should note what Britain is doing to combat teen pregnancy and abortion-and should perhaps do the opposite. Britain now has the highest rate of abortion in Europe, with the abortion rate for teenage girls increasing by nearly a third over the past decade, and half of teenage pregnancies ending in abortion. The government is responding with calls for more sex education, making sex education mandatory at age 15 although the legal age of consent in Britain is 16. Parents are no longer allowed to have their children opt out of sex education, and faith-based schools are now required to teach it.
