Private clinics in Spain profiting from abortion services

.- In response to the refusal by gynecologists of the public health care system of Andalusia to perform abortions, a considerable number of women are being sent to private clinics that have agreed to collaborate with the Council for Health Care.

The newspaper “Sur,” citing sources from the Council,” said that in the province of Malaga alone there are two private clinics that are performing abortions.

The same sources said that the “family doctor of the patient who has chosen to abort” is “sending her to one of these private clinics to undergo a medical and psychological study to determine whether the abortion would be allowed for under Spanish law.”

According to the paper, “more than 4,500 women obtain a legal abortion each year in Malaga.”  Sources told Sur that gynecologists of the public health care system refuse to perform abortions because “this practice is related to the most unpleasant part of their field of work.”
