Abortions among teenagers in Stockholm increase; highest figures since 1990!
After yesterday’s blog about “abortion art”, alarming figures have been released by our social authorities here in Sweden.
Although the figures show that there is a slow decrease in the country as a whole, the increase among teenage girls is clear. In Salem, one of the suburbs of Stockholm 5% of the girls have undergone an abortion. One more provoking fact was brought to the attention: 37% of the women undergoing abortion have done so previously! Abortion seems to be used as an contraceptive!
As a pastor I have been confronted with women and couples who have gone through abortion and besides the fact that many are ridden by guilt about the death of the child, they also are faced with tremendous traumas. Some time ago I wrote a rather extensive blog on that, read it here.
What to say after such figures? Again, let the words of Ulf Ekman guide us in this regard, let us never stop speaking and fighting against this injustice!
