A record number of abortions in Scotland last year may have been driven by cost of living worries, a charity has said.
Figures released by Public Health Scotland showed there were 16,584 terminations in 2022, a 19% increase.
Women living in the least affluent areas had twice as many abortions as those in the most affluent areas.
