The Spanish association E-Crisitians is requesting donations to help finance its lawsuit, filed together with other pro-life associations in Spain, against abortion magnate Carlos Morin for performing 115 allegedly illegal abortions.
Morin and his staff allegedly performed numerous mid and late-term abortions, including one abortion on an eight-month pregnant woman. Twelve other persons are also targeted in the lawsuit, which was the result of a six year-long investigation that revealed Morin and staff members at his two clinics were using garbage disposals to destroy the fetuses. Prosecutors are asking for 345 years in prison for Morin.
The trial is set to begin on September 14 and is expected to be long and costly.
The president of E-Cristians, Josep Miro, said his association has been following the case ever since Morin was exposed by the British paper The Daily Telegraph in 2004. E-Cristians has invested over $69,000 in its lawsuit against the abortion doctor.
While the Spanish media ignored Morin and his activities, the international press was intrigued by the network he developed which brought women from Italy, Denmark and England to Spain to obtain abortions.
A report by Danish television revealed that Morin was justifying his abortions by claiming his patients needed them for psychological or gynecological health reasons. He told reporters he was unconcerned about whether or not the babies he was aborting could live outside the womb. “I am not a philosopher. I’m not here to answer if a fetus would be able to breathe or not,” he said.
Morin, who is from Peru, made a fortune performing abortions, buying a home valued at $5.2 million dollars, complete with a pool, jacuzzi, and a large garden. He also bought numerous luxury cars, including a Ferrari.
Miro said the case against Morin in Barcelona, unlike a previous one in Madrid, has been successful because of testimony to the police by an eye-witness of his practices. A judge then granted the police permission for a wiretap, which led to Morin’s arrest.
The lawsuit against him is expected to cost an additional $34,000, and efforts to publicize the truth about the case will run about $12,000, Miro said. Those interested in the case can write to email@example.com.
