The abortions were carried out in public hospitals and was free for women who have an Italian health card. There are no special abortion clinics in Italy.
Italy has one of the most liberal abortion laws and now over 1,00,000 Italian babies are killed annually and this is not being reported by the mainline Italian newspapers.
Even the daily newspaper of the Italian bishops conference, Avvenire, has reports from Dec.31, 2015 to Jan. 3,2016 on infants being lost at sea by immigrants but nothing about the infants legally murdered in Italian society.
Avvenire has a statement by the Italian President and Pope Francis affirming their commitment to immigration, mentioning specifically babies killed but there is nothing about the annual loss of over 1,00,000 Italian infants, through abortions in hospitals and the use of abortificient drugs.
The Avvenire correspondent mentioned 700 immigrant babies killed in 2015 but nothing about the hundreds of thousands of babies killed in the womb of a mother with the use of pincers and other surgical instruments.
