Ban on Marie Stopes post-abortion services lifted
A ban on post abortion services offered at Marie Stopes clinics across the country has been lifted.
A statement from Prof. George Magoha, Chairman of the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board, however warned the organisation from offering abortion services on demand.
“The order directing Marie Stopes Kenya to desist from offering post abortion care services s hereby lifted and Marie Stopes Kenya is instructed to operate within the confines of the Constitution of Kenya,” he said.
The management of Marie Stopes Kenya is also expected to write a letter of committment to the above order within the next seven days, the statement adds.
Prof. Magoha further reiterated that all other court orders issued on November 10 must be adhered to.
He also instructed Marie Stopes management to ensure that they hand over weekly reports of procedures carried out at their facilities to the Board.
On November 20, abortion services at Marie Stopes were suspended after the organisation was outed over allegedly performing the procedure on underage girls.
