Abortion Ship to Target Morocco, Ran Aground Years Ago

The abortion boat run by a Dutch-based pro-abortion group is back. After running around years ago in South America, the organization has brought the ship back to supposedly do drug-induced  abortions on women and unborn children off of the coast of this pro-life nation.

Abortions are not legal in this northern Africa nation. While the boat was initially set up to do surgical abortions, it has normally given women either the dangerous RU 486 abortion drug or misiprostol pills that are meant for ulcers but are bastardized by the group to cause abortions.

“MALI ( Alternative Movement for Individual Freedoms ) has invited the Dutch organization Women on Waves to come to Morocco with the abortion ship,” the group said in a press statement LifeNews received. “The ship can provide women with legal medical abortions under Dutch law after sailing to international waters.”

“MALI has invited Women on Waves to support the movement for legalization of abortion. To support legalization of abortion in Morocco, people can sign the petition,” it said.

WOW will not announce the place, date and time of arrival of the ship, likely due to fears of protests by pro-life advocates or actions by the government of Morocco.

As LifeNews reported in June 2008, the abortion boat ran around:

In 1999, abortion advocates devised a new strategy to bring abortion to nations that protect women and unborn children. After upsetting residents of Ireland, Poland and Portugal, the Dutch-based abortion boat recently arrived in the South American nation of Ecuador, where abortions are illegal.



The pro-abortion group Women on Waves is behind the abortion boat and the group said it received an invitation from local abortion advocates to head across the Atlantic.

The organization recently traded in its converted tugboat, or trawler, for a high-end sailing vessel, but the group may be regretting its decision.

On its way to Ecuador, the Women on Waves ship, Harmony, ran aground in a tropical storm.

The incident occurred two week ago and WOW said it is “almost sure it will not be able to arrive in Ecuador for the planned campaign.”

The group tried to put a good face on the predicament in a press release and said its officials would spend their time in Ecuador promoting the dangerous RU 486 abortion drug.
