Nigerian doctor charged with manslaughter after pregnant woman dies from massive blood loss after abortion

A Nigerian doctor named Dr Adedayo Adedeji, 62, was on June 4th charged with manslaughter after a pregnant woman died from massive blood loss after he performed an abortion on her. The woman, who is also of African descent, traveled from Dublin to London in January 2012 for the abortion after healthcare workers in Ireland refused to help when she tried to terminate the pregnancy. 

According to UK Daily Mail, after the 32 year old woman had the abortion at the West London Clinic, she collapsed several hours later while traveling in a taxi in Slough, Berkshire, and died of ‘extensive internal bleeding’.
Dr Adedeji and two other nurses, Gemma Pullen, 31, and Margaret Miller, 54, have been charged with the manslaughter of the woman because of their alleged gross negligence three years ago.

Speaking later, the woman's husband said the woman had been diagnosed with a condition which can carry an elevated risk of miscarriage and other complications, but was not considered to be life-threatening and that when they sought help in Ireland, doctors refused to help them, forcing them to go to London.

A year after the incident, detectives launched an investigation into the circumstances of the woman’s death and on June 4th, announced that the doctor and two nurses have been summoned to appear before a magistrate to face manslaughter charges.

They are being accused of gross negligence and ‘failing to take reasonable care of other persons who may be affected by acts or omissions at work’. They will appear before Westminster Magistrates’ Court on June 19.

Nigerians are greedy. He did it for the monetary benefit. He must have estimated his gain and defied his professional ethics. Now, dance to the music

The West London Clinic is notorious for carelessness, in 1988 I went to the clinic for scars on my left hand as a result of motor accident in Nigeria. They made the scars worst and I am now living with a bigger scars for the rest of my life. Some Harley Street clinics are dangerous.

Ifechukwu Kings said...

well, he should have made certain verifications before aborting the baby. probably those nonlife threatening complications might have been affected badly leading to the woman losing her life in the process

For your scar, u can use local Shea butter as it removes all after birth marks. It works as I av used it and it moisturizes

Olodo! In UK, termination is legal if done under one of five criteria! He is not being tried because he performed the act but because he did not take reasonable care in performing it leading to acomplication that was not recognised. Hence, allowing the woman to leave hospital.

Greed? There is no monetary gain performing the act in UK as there is a legal allowance under specific criteria. It is not like what you are used to in Nigeria!
