New UK ‘two child limit’ forces low-income families into abortions

New UK ‘two child limit’ forces low-income families into abortions
Abortion numbers have hit an all-time high in the UK, increasing four percent since 2017, mostly in women over age 35. There were 200,608 abortions in the UK last year, but while the number rose for older women, the number of abortions for women under age 18 has declined. The cause? A new government policy known as “the two child limit.”

The two-child limit is a policy that applies to third children born after April 6, 2017. According to British Pregnancy Advisory Servic (BPAS), it affects the child tax credit and the universal credit. After the first two children are born, benefits can’t be claimed for any future children. The only exceptions are if a second pregnancy is multiple births such as twins or triplets, if the pregnancy was from rape and the mother can prove she doesn’t live at the same address as her assailant or cases in which the third child is being adopted or cared for by in a “non-parental relationship by the claimant,” said BPS.  Click here for more.
