Germany aborted more than one hundred thousand babies, official figures confirmed.



According to the statistics of the State Federal Agency, 100,986 abortions were practised in the country between January and December 2018.



Seven in ten women were between 18 and 34 years old when they aborted, and almost two in ten were aged 35 to 39. Only 3% of the abortions were practiced in cases of women aged 18 or less.



Criminal or medical indications were the cause of only 4% of the abortions, the official data collected by German news agency Idea say.



The total figures show a decrease of 0.2% compared to 2017, when 101,209 abortions were practised. But less children were aborted in 2016 (98,721), 2015 (99,237) and 2014 (99,715).



Every year, Christians in Germany join other social groups for the March For Life in Berlin. “Welcoming every child, supporting every woman” was one of the messages of last year’s pro-life demonstration.



The last figures of the United Kingdom say that 197,533 babies were aborted in 2017, a 10-year high. In Spain, the official figure of abortions that year was 94,123.
