Brazilian Authorities Make Arrests Related To Illegal Abortion Clinics

New York Times: Brazil Cracks Down on Illegal Abortion Clinics
“The police in Rio de Janeiro said on Tuesday that they had arrested more than 50 people suspected of working in clandestine abortion clinics. Abortion is illegal in Brazil in most circumstances, allowed only when the woman’s life is in danger, she has been raped, or the fetus has anencephaly, a severe birth defect in which parts of the brain and skull are missing…” (Romero, 10/14).
