This year marked the 50th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion in Britain and it is now estimated by the National Health Service (NHS) that one in three women will have a termination in their lifetime.
Last year, there were just over 190,000 abortions carried out in England and Wales, according to figures from the department of health in the UK.
