Dutch abortion ship 'blocked' from Morocco port of Smir

A Dutch campaign group says its ship offering women medical abortions has been prevented by authorities from entering the Moroccan port of Smir

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19829889

Over the past 11 years, a Women on Waves ship has visited Ireland, Poland, Portugal and Spain, sparking protests from anti-abortion groups.

Morocco was the first Muslim country the group planned to visit.

In cases of illegal abortions performed domestically, women expose themselves to grave health risks by resorting to dangerous methods, Women on Waves says.

The group says that, according to figures published by the Moroccan government, between 600 and 800 abortions take place every day in the North African kingdom.
