With local hands tied, U.S. women are airlifted to Spain to end an infeasible pregnancy

An American woman left afraid of her life after being asked to have an abortion after allegations of miscarriage have been rejected by health authorities will be airlifted to Spain, where the procedure takes place.

Lawyer Lara Dimitrievich said the couple in an ambulance because Andrea Prudente and her partner Jay Weldleyer’s travel insurance could classify the situation in which Prudente found herself as “life-threatening.” I confirmed to the media section that I accepted the evacuation to Spain.

Patients may be evacuated as soon as Thursday.

Prudente was admitted to MaterDei Hospital for over a week after suffering from heavy bleeding and broken water that had been pregnant for 16 weeks. Her ultrasonography showed a rupture of her membrane (broken water) and a detachment of the placenta. But her fetus still had a heartbeat.

“International obstetric guidelines state that if the fetus is not yet alive (24 weeks ago), an abortion (ie, abortion) should be provided to avoid the risk of maternal infection and death. Infections can flow through ruptured membranes, into the womb, and into the blood, leading to death, “said Doctors for Choice, the NGO that first revealed the incident.

However, Prudente was denied dismissal and doctors told her that she could only intervene if she was at imminent risk of death. This means that not only is an American woman waiting for her unborn baby to die naturally, she is also at risk of her own fatal infection. ..

In Malta, abortion was not proposed due to the country’s strict anti-abortion rules. Malta is the only country in the EU and one of the few in the world to have a total ban on abortion in all circumstances.

The incident has been an international headline since it was first reported on Wednesday.

It urged pro-choice activists to demand the non-criminalization of abortion again, but people from the pro-life lobby are already legal and to do everything they can to save the lives of their mothers. Impact on the fetus that said it has an ethical obligation.

So far, neither the Ministry of Health nor Mater Dei Hospital have commented on the incident.
