The cemetery of the fetuses in the city, the controversy has broken out
After the discovery of MF, a controversy broke out which involved women's associations, the Privacy Guarantor, cemetery services and hospitals. There is also talk of a parliamentary question.
The burial is carried out on the basis of a 1990 mortuary police regulation, which refers to a royal decree of 1939, which provides that anyone who performs a therapeutic abortion can undertake this procedure. Therefore, the woman's consent is needed, and some have declared that they have not given it.
For this reason, the Privacy Authority has opened an investigation. In addition, the Catholic symbol was also questioned, as none of the women had specified religious orientation.
