Georgian MPs promised to think about abortions
Georgian parliamentarians see no reason for the ban of legal abortion to prevent birth of unwanted sex. As reported by Trend with reference to the Chairman of Committee on Health Otar Toidze, however, they are willing to consider a relevant resolution which the Council of Europe sent to Georgia. Parliament will discuss this issue, after Georgian delegation which is at the PACE now, will return, said Toidze.
But he added that in Sakartvelo they don't perform operation in order to regulate the sex of the child. However, if formally prohibit sexing fetus, it can become doctors' method of influence on parents, said the head of the Committee.
According to Georgian law, a patient has a right to know the full information about his health and disease, said Toidze. A sexing of the fetus at an early stage is needed to identify a number of genetic diseases.
In turn, according to vice-speaker of Georgian parliament Giga Tsereteli, the realities of Georgia does not provide a basis for tougher measures in this area. Since the birth of a child of unwanted sex and legal abortion can be prevented other ways, for example - with the help of public awareness, said Tsereteli.
