Forty percent of out-of-wedlock pregnancies in Spain are terminated by abortion

.- The president of the Institute for Family Policy, Eduardo Hertfelder, said this week that the latest data shows "4 out of every 10 out-of-wedlock pregnancies" in Spain end in abortion, indicating the failure of the government’s family policy.

He explained that the rates have increased since 2007 when "out of every 10 pregnancies, two ended in abortion and three were out of wedlock." This translates to almost 150,000 children born to unmarried parents and 66,489 abortions by single parents.

He added that between 1995 and 2007, "out-of-wedlock births have tripled. During this period, more than 1.1 million children were born" to unmarried parents.

The reality of these facts, Hertfelder noted, "proves that something is failing in Spain. Sexual education is not only erroneous, it is also fostering both out-of-wedlock pregnancies and abortions."

"The increase in immigrants from different cultures, the increase in unmarried couples and the increase in premarital and extramarital sexual relations are the main causes of the increased numbers of out-of-wedlock births," he stated.
