.- The Spanish Federation of Pro-Life Associations has demanded that the ministers of Health and of Equality, Bernat Soria and Bibiana Aido, respectively, close the El Bosque Clinic out of caution “in order to carry out an appropriate investigation” into the recent death of a 21-week pregnant woman who died from a botched abortion.

In a statement, the Federation also asked for “rigorous control of all the other clinics where we know the law is being violated and inadequate practices and profiting at the expense of the pain of others are taking place.”

The statement said explanations by the director of the clinic, Sergio Munoz, were “not convincing,” after he claimed the woman died from “an embolism of amniotic fluid.”

“Various gynecologists we have consulted agree that if what happened was an embolism of amniotic fluid,” it was caused “by the contractions that were triggered to induce labor and probably by an overdose” of the inexpensive drugs that are often used to bring on contractions and therefore abortions.

“We assume that prior to this inducing, different tests and analyses were carried out. All of this should be investigated,” the Association stated.

It also called on the ministers to establish “an office where women, with complete assurance of their privacy, can denounce the excesses and lack of information experienced at these clinics.”

“We cannot remain passive about this death, which is one of many that have occurred at public and private clinics and that have been unreported by the media. Now it’s not only the unborn that are dying,” the Association said.
