"when Alesha was just over 15 weeks into the pregnancy"
This is why in some countries the limit for the bulk of terminations have to be performed under 12 weeks. After 12 weeks, the risks increase dramatically.
As 'abortion on demand' seem to be commonplace nowadays (this is not an issue about the right and wrongs here), I think the time has come to be frank with our teenagers and explain the REAL risks of unprotected sex. Yes, abortions on the main are "safe" but there are always exceptions to the rule.
I attended a "sex" talk for 9 year olds a few months ago. It was sad because one of the safest options available - abstinence - did not even get a mention, not even a fleeting comment, not even a "wait 'till you think you're ready". The message was: it's OK to have sex whenever and with whoever, so long as it's "safe sex".
I really fear that there will be further cases as the number of under-age teenagers having abortions increases.
