Rajkot, India (LifeNews.com) — A young woman in India died from a botched legal abortion recently and she is at least the third woman to have died this year. An unmarried 20-year-old girl died after complications from the failed abortion she had last week, local officials indicated today.
The Press Trust of India indicates Hansa Makwan died at the H J Doshi hospital based in this city in the western part of the nation near the Indian Ocean.
Hansa’s father lodged a complaint with local police against her paramour Rajesh Ubharia and doctors of Kashi Hospital in Morbi where the abortion was done.
She was five months pregnant at the time of the abortion and the newspaper indicates she was transferred from Kashi to H J Doshi hospital after she developed complications from the botched abortion.
Officials indicate they are attempting to detain Rajesh and the doctors involved for questioning in the case.
In September, a health visitor (registered nurse) in India was suspended and local officials launched an investigation after an abortion killed a woman who was three months pregnant.
The abortion deaths point to the very real consequences of legal abortions for women and shows that attempts by abortion advocates to allow nurses to do abortions puts women’s health at risk.
In this other case, the abortion was done on a woman at the Araziline CHC in Varanasi, India and the health visitor who reportedly did the abortion has been suspended.
Local police have indicated they have filed complaints against the nurse under two sections of criminal code after Mahendra Bind, the husband of the deceased woman, Rajkumari Bind, filed a complaint.
Another woman died in April in Hyderabad, who was identified as 22-year-old S Sneha. She died at Care Hospital after developing complications during the abortion.
Humayunnagar police sub-inspector Fayaz told the newspaper, Sneha was six weeks pregnant. On the night of April 8, Gautam, his sister Jyothsna and brother-in-law Ramesh, took Sneha to the Karan Maternity Hospital at Vijaynagar colony to get an abortion done. Jyothsna and Ramesh are also doctors."
