An Indian doctor is being investigated for carrying out sex selective abortions in the UK. An “extremely concerned” health secretary Andrew Lansley asked the police to investigate the matter.An undercover investigation found consultant Prabha Sivaraman and another doctor agreeing to terminate a pregnancy based on the baby’s gender. They were suspended after being filmed in the act.
They have also admitted on record that they were prepared to falsify paperwork to arrange the abortions, the ‘Daily Mail’ said. Sivaraman works for private clinics and NHS hospitals in Manchester.
She told a young woman who wanted to abort a female fetus, “I don’t ask questions. If you want a termination, you want a termination.” The woman claimed that she had a blood test in France which left her ‘pretty certain’ she was having a girl. She said, “That’s not really appropriate for us right now, we were hoping for a boy. It’s the wrong gender.”
