Abortions in Spain Rise by 72 percent in 10 years

The number of abortions carried out in Spain has risen by almost three quarters in the past decade but the figure remains low by European standards, the country's health ministry said. In 2004 the total reached 84,985, up by 6.5 percent on 2003 (79,788) et 72 percent on 1995 (49,367), it reported.

This is shocking, considering Spain is a predominantly Catholic country.
