UK abortion provider found half of their abortions were on women using contraception

LONDON ( – One of the U.K.’s largest abortion providers is reporting that more than half of the women who had an abortion at its clinics were using contraception that failed.

British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS), an organization that performs abortions at more than sixty locations in the U.K., released a report Friday, which showed that “of 60,592 women who had an abortion at any gestation at BPAS clinics in 2016 … over half (51.2 percent) of women were using a method of contraception.”

Contrary to the popular claim made even by some Catholics that contraception prevents abortion, the study noted “public discourse and some family planning initiatives frequently imply that abortion can always be avoided through the use of contraception.” It added, “However, each year, nine in every 100 women using the contraceptive pill, the most popular method of contraception in the U.K., six in every 100 using the contraceptive injection and nearly one in every 100 using the IUD (copper coil) will become pregnant.”

Church Militant has often said that abortion is merely an extension of contraception. Agreeing with this premise, Ann Furedi, chief executive of BPAS, in the report related:

When you encourage women to use contraception, you give them the sense that they can control their fertility. … Our data shows women cannot control their fertility through contraception alone, even when they are using some of the most effective methods. … Abortion is birth control that women need when their regular method lets them down.

A BPAS spokesperson told HuffPost U.K. that contraception failure was owing to a combination of built-in failure of the contraceptives themselves and human failure when using the various methods. “The point is, generally, women aren’t being haphazard ‎with their method — women try very hard to avoid unwanted pregnancy but contraception can let them down, and they need abortion as a back-up for when that happens,” the spokesperson said.
