The Department has not commissioned any research projects specifically on the causes of multiple abortions among young women aged under 16 and young women aged under 18. However, the Government Office for London, which has now been abolished, commissioned a research report published in January 2010, ‘Young People in London: Abortion and Repeat Abortion’. A copy of the report has been placed in the Library.
