Shenzhen 'fake doctor' jailed for two years for running sex-selective abortion clinic

A woman with no medical qualifications who ran a sex-selection abortion clinic from her own Shenzhen apartment has been jailed for two years.
The woman was prosecuted after one of her clients had a botched abortion that left her infertile. A Shenzhen court was told that the woman called Liu Mo had offered a 'quick and painless' abortion for 800 RMB to a woman who came to her clinic after having a scan showing she was pregnant with a female foetus. Her family had pressed her against having a girl and Liu Mo performed an abortion. However the procedure was done badly and the woman had severe haemorrhage and was taken to the public Renmin hospital in Shenzhen. Doctors there were able to stop the bleeding but told the woman she would most likely be unable to have children.  According to Sohu, the fake doctor was sentenced to two years in prison and fined 5000 RMB.
