Ali Larijani, the Iranian regime’s parliament (Majlis) speaker reported on 220 thousand abortions in Iran and said: “The 220 thousand abortions, half of which were illegal, is a dangerous rate and the Health Ministry must pay attention to it.
The issue cannot be calculated according to normal standards. It is a kind of manslaughter and against the values of our society. However, the issue of population and policies related to this must be carefully and skillfully reviewed. A plan is being drafted in Majlis which needs to be completed. We hope that with the administration’s cooperation, this matter will turn into a comprehensive law.”
