Two Parliamentary investigations have been launched into illegal abortion clinics in Bahrain. According to reports, houses and apartments are being used to perform illegal abortions and hymen reconstruction surgeries. The reports have added those carrying out these procedures are charging between 300 and 500 Dinars each time. The Parliamentary investigations will focus on the smuggling of medicines like Cytotec to assist abortions. Under the existing law, abortions can only be carried out at authorised hospitals if a woman’s life is in danger and if three consultant doctors approve it.
