The prosecutors’ office is requesting a 309 year sentence for the Peruvian doctor Carlos Morín for more than 100 illegal abortions which were carried out at his Barcelona clinics before 2007. Morín’s partner in the business, his wife, María Luisa Durán, faces 204 years.

The couple are also charged with falsifying documents and illicit association.

The investigation began in 2007 following a television report on the clinic which was broadcast in Denmark.

El País indicates that some of the women who underwent terminations were more than seven and a half months pregnant. The paper said Morín and his team justified the procedure at more than 22 weeks under Spain’s former abortion law, which allowed a termination if the mother’s health was at serious risk.

The patients should have been assessed by a psychiatric if that was the case, but it’s understood that that, in many cases, never happened, and two psychiatrists, who are also charged, signed off their reports without a visit.

Morín admitted during the instruction phase of the case that abortions were performed on girls as young as 13.

The prosecutors consider that Morín set up, ‘a structure which was almost exclusively devoted to carrying out terminations without any regard for the legal requirements or the time limit for abortion’.

The instruction phase of the case has now ended and the judge has given the order that it can proceed to trial.
