We report that The Shanghai Daily reported on a Xinmen Evening News report (in Chinese) that teenage abortions peaked during the May Golden Week holiday period. The article states that this mirrors a trend for all the Golden Week holidays, where students take time to recover from the procedure which would normally eat into study or internship responsibilities. The Shanghai Daily report quotes that 80 percent of the abortion patients were under the age of 18.
