Barcelona abortion clinic arrests

Via BBC News:

Police in Spain have arrested four people suspected of carrying out illegal abortions in Barcelona. The arrests followed raids on several clinics as part of an investigation following a complaint from a pro-choice group called e-Cristians, police said.

Spanish media reported that up to four clinics were searched, including one suspected of performing abortions on women more than 32 weeks pregnant.

The upper limit for abortions in Spain is 22 weeks.

Spain allows abortions to avoid serious risk to the physical or mental health of the woman, and in cases of rape or foetal deformation.
