Minimum age may force girls to abort foetus overseas or without clinical help

I refer to Voices writer Zhang Jieqiang’s letter, “Set minimum age for women seeking abortion” (Aug 15).
It noted the existence of a minimum age for sex (16 years old), consuming alcohol (18), buying cigarettes (19), and voting or consenting to marry someone (21).
Based on these facts, the writer argued: “Does it not logically follow that there should be a minimum legal age for abortion?”
