Gardaí and HSE probe pregnancy-counselling services after undercover findings27/10/2012 - 09:27:41
Gardaí and the HSE have launched an investigation into some pregnancy-counselling services.
The investigation follows an undercover probe by a group of women, some from the pro-life movement, who secretly recorded counsellors at 11 locations around the country, the Irish Independent reports.
In some cases the counsellers were found to be giving illegal and medically dangerous advice that women should conceal their abortions from their doctors, advice which could put the life of the woman at risk if post-surgery abortion complications remain undiagnosed..
It i's reported the clinics involved are overseen and funded by the HSE's Crisis Pregnancy Programme.
