Waiting times for abortion increase at Casa clinics
September 26, 2017
Hundreds of Dutch women need to wait more time than usual for an abortion at Casa abortion clinics, reports the Volkskrant on Tuesday.
There is especial demand among women who are more than 18 weeks’ pregnant and seeking a ‘late’ abortion, since one of three specialised Casa clinics offering this procedure has closed.
Due to a reorganisation and the partial bankruptcy of Casa, there is reportedly more pressure on its two clinics offering late abortions, as well as its seven clinics offering other procedures.
