A Haitian doctor is facing judiciary action in Morocco for charges of practicing abortion after one of his patients suffered serious physical complications, reported ArabicNews.com. 

The doctor, aged 56, worked in Morocco for over 30 years, and although he was not a gynecologist, he used to practice abortion during weekends, said the agency. 

Abortion is forbidden by Moroccan law, except in cases where pregnancy could harm the woman, according to the agency - Albawaba.com
