Illegal abortion Dr. Avoids jail
Soon after the woman took the drugs given to her by Dr.Sood, she delivered a baby boy in a toilet bowl. Therefore Dr.Sood was charged with manslaughter,(later aquitted) but the judge (Justice Carolyn Simpson) decided that because of the publicity surrounding the case, this was enough to drive the legal obligations home to other doctors and that 2 years good behaviou bond as punnishement was suffice.
I think it sends out the opposite message to doctors.
The punishment for this crime is normally a 10 year jail sentence, and Dr.Sood got a slap on the hand for it.
The baby boy died 5 hours after birth because his lungs were still underdeveloped so it was what we could call, mission accomplished.
How can people have so little regard for the unborn?
No wonder Dr.Sood was smiling when she left court, you can read the news story here
