Woman Forced to Give Birth on Grass Outside Hospital in Mexico Causing Controversy
Published: on October 10, 2013|
A pregnant woman going into labor was turned away at a clinic in Mexico. Irma Lopez was turned away by a nurse because she was only 8 months pregnant and not ready to deliver. She was forced to give birth on the front lawn of the clinic. A passerby took a photo and it made it to the front page of La Razon de Mexico. This prompted the government of Oaxaca to fire the clinic director and conduct an official investigation into the incident.
