Forbes: Police Raid Rio de Janeiro Abortion Clinic, by Kenneth Rapoza:
Police raided an abortion clinic late Saturday in the Rio de Janeiro neighborhood of Bonsucesso following tips that the clinic was also selling drugs. While abortions are tolerated in Brazil by law enforcement, they are illegal except when a woman’s life is in danger, under-aged, or the pregnancy was due to rape. . . .
This type of raid is not new or uncommon. See: International Consortium for Medical Abortion: Abortion persecution in Brazil.
