'More than a hundred teenage girls a month go into a hospital or clinic to have an abortion for the second time, figures from the Department of Health reveal. They include at least one girl under 18 who has had at least six abortions.'

I know they say that abortions don’t affect a person’s gynaecological health, but all that undercarriage hoovering really can’t be good for a person who isn’t even old enough to drive.
Somebody somewhere really ought to tell this girl about the birds and the bees. And the pill. And condoms. And, for what it’s worth, abstention…
