Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley says abortions remain illegal in this country but the debate surrounding reforming the law continues. Dr. Rowley yesterday said his government intends to abide by the existing law.
However he said discussions would continue to take place. The Prime Minister’s statement came following questions from journalists at yesterday’s post cabinet news conference. His position also comes after his Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh said the debate on abortion is over.
The Prime Minister said it is common knowledge that abortions are done in this country. Minister of Health Deyalsingh has been soundly criticised for his statement on the issue last week. So one cannot bury ones head in the sand and pretend it is not happening.
