    Abortions reached the highest level ever in the UK as 200,608 women had their pregnancies terminated in 2018, it was reported on 14 June.

    This marked an increase of 4% from the previous year. A further 4,687 abortions were carried out on non-residents in 2018. Experts said that the increase was as a result of older women and mothers being more likely to have abortions.
