Therefore new MP initiative was to ban abortion in Ukraine but met with the strong opposition
Ukraine MP Minister Bogatyreva banning abortion: everyone should have a choice
She stated “I am against abortion, but people should have a choice,” – said Bogatyrev.
“This choice depends not only on doctors but also on many issues: the environment in which woman was, whether she sees herself with a child or without, – said the Minister. – Until 1953 medical abortion in the USSR were banned and very severely punished. And there was a terrible mortality statistics of young women from illegal abortion – because if a person decided to do something, he will find a way to do it.”
There is also inherent conflict of interests : Doctors doing abortions violate the Hippocratic oath, that all doctors make prior becoming a doctor by status and profession. This statement made in Ukraine not only by the Church but also by many citizens. While Raisa Bohatyryova stressed that she does not advise anyone to have abortions, it should not be banned.
“There will always be someone from the medical staff who will be able to help you with such personal decision such as an abortion.” – she summed up.
We will remind, earlier the MP Andrey Shkil has registered in the Verkhovna Rada Parliament of Ukraine a draft law banning women to voluntarily have abortions.
