Turkish Protest Abortion Regs; Indian Shelter Abuses

Turkey’s government is seeking to curb access to abortion, triggering outrage from women’s groups and opposition lawmakers. Turkey’s top cleric weighed in on the debate June 4, backing the government’s position that abortion was murder, on the grounds that Islam considers the fetus to be a separate human being. Abortion until the 10th week after conception has been legal in Turkey since 1983.
