Spanish court allows complaint against abortion doctor to go forward

.- A court in Barcelona has allowed a lawsuit filed by the association E-Cristians to go forward against abortion “doctor” Carlos Morin and his accomplices for carrying out illegal abortions.

After state attorney Ana Jose Crespo Cuadrado filed a brief recommending the lawsuit proceed, the court gave the green light for investigations into Morin’s activities and those of the Clinics Ginemedex, TBC, EMECE and Barnamedic of Barcelona.

E-Cristians said it was pleased at the news and that it hoped the investigations would “clear up the truth about the activities of Doctor Carlos Morin.  E-Cristians is committed to cooperating fully with the investigation.”

Crespo proposed that the investigations fully respect the privacy and medical records of the patients, and therefore she recommended medical files, hard drives and books from the entities being investigated not be requested.  Instead, she proposed the government’s Social Security administration present the work history of the clinics in question, and that the department of Health in Catalonia provide documentation on the inspections that have been carried out at the clinics.

In addition, she suggested entering into evidence the statements by Morin and the report compiled by British journalists Daniel Foggo and Charlotte Edwards of the Daily Telegraph and the Sunday Telegraph in October of 2004, as well as a TV program produced by Danish journalists and aired in October of 2006.

E-Cristians filed the lawsuit against Carlos Morin in November of 2006.  Morin had been imprisoned in 1989 after being accused of performing illegal abortions at the Ginetec clinic.
