A local organization is lobbying for a full-fledged investigation into recent claims of “post abortion treatments” at Victoria Hospital following what it says are botched procedures.

The concerns come following news that two young women were admitted at Victoria Hospital after recently undergoing failed abortions?

In a statement released earlier today, United PAC noted that the matter is of grave concern, considering the potential negative impact on the reproductive health of women.

The group has called for accountability and clarification from the Minister for Health Alvina Reynolds, Hon. Victor Philip La Corbiniere, Minister of Legal Affairs, Home Affairs & National  Security, Mrs. Kim St. Rose, Attorney General; and The Management of Victoria Hospital

In addition United PAC is seeking feedback on whether or not the practice of abortion has been officially sanctioned in St. Lucia? And whether Victoria Hospital involved in any way in providing accommodation and cover for medical practitioners, who may be engaged in performing the procedures?

United PAC is particularly concerned over the instances of botched abortions that threaten the general and reproductive health of the women of the nation.
