Abortion Headline - Dubai UAE
A cleaner made a living performing abortions by giving women injections and tablets in return for nearly Dh1,000, a court heard this morning.
MS, 32, from Bangladesh, is charged with performing two abortions illegally and practising medicine without a licence, prosecutors said.
"I didn’t do it,” he told the Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance.
According to records, NP, a 34-year-old Indonesian maid, fell in love with a man and had a child with him. When the baby was seven months old, she told prosecutors, she got pregnant again. Her lover, who is identified in records as R and is at large, told her about MS and suggested that he help her abort the pregnancy.
“This is true, I'm guilty,” NP told the court while holding her two-year-old child.
She said MS visited her and gave her two injections and five tablets. Five hours after taking them, she said she felt severe pain in her back and abdomen, and the pregnancy was aborted. She paid MS Dh1,000, records show.
