Services failed to help teenager who jumped to her death after having abortion aged 13, says review


A TEENAGER who leapt to her death from an 100ft high monument “wanted to die but wake up the next morning”, friends say.

Ashli Blake was just 15 when she took her own life in September 2014, less than three years after she terminated a pregnancy.

Now a serious case review into her death has concluded that a number of agencies working with Ashli failed to refer her to counselling services offered by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service following the abortion.


Praying for the repose of her soul. Thanks for sharing as difficult as this situation is. :


Praying for her soul and that of her baby.


Praying for the repose of her & her baby’s souls & for her family.
