Abortion: “murder”, according to the Turkish Prime Minister

Publié le : 8 June 2012

The Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated on Friday 25 May 2012 that he regards "abortion as murder." He added: "Nobody should have the right to authorise it. Whether you kill the baby in its mother’s womb or […] after its birth, it makes no difference."
In Turkey, women have the possibility of aborting "during the first ten weeks of pregnancy," but if they are married, the "consent […] of the father is also required."
