Time to address our abortion laws*


IT was the talk of the town and social media was on fire after news broke about a doctor who allegedly performed an abortion and kept the seven-month foetus in a fridge.
Trinbagonians are well known to be judge, jury and executioner and the questions flowed more than answers.
How could he do this? Why did the parents of the baby do such a thing? If the baby was crying at birth, why not go straight to the hospital? Was this really an abortion or should it now be classified and documented as a live birth? That’s all for investigation.
No matter what we would like to believe, whether religious or otherwise, abortions have become a goldmine for some doctors or “abortion specialists” as some refer to them.
