Over 13 mn women abort in China every year
Wednesday January 28, 2015 2:52 PM, IANS

Over 13 million abortions are carried out in China every year with an increasing number of predominantly younger people choosing to end unwanted pregnancies, a media report said Wednesday.

Among female adolescents who have premarital sex, more than 20 percent have unwanted pregnancies, of which up to 91 percent end in abortion. The repeat abortion situation is particularly serious, People's Daily said in a report.

It cited data published by China's National Health and Family Planning Commission, according to which almost half of the reported abortions in China were conducted on women below the age of 25, the majority of whom were university students.

Misled by deceptive adverting by some private hospitals promising "painless abortion", more and more young Chinese no longer take the matter seriously, as if abortion were "safe, affordable, and with no impact on work", the daily said.
