Ministry of Tourism and Culture cancels the licence of a tour company which has just launched international ‘abortion tours’ for Turkish women
In an attempt to capitalize on the recent controversy
surrounding possible new abortion regulations, Turkey’s Baracuda Tur has
launched international “abortion tours” for women looking to combine sight-seeing
and medical procedures, daily Radikal reported.
Baracuda Tur began offering abortion tours to Crimea,
Bosnia, Turkish Cyrpus and England 15 days ago and has said that 16 customers
have already signed up.
“Whenever anything is made illegal or difficult to acquire
in the country, people will always find a way to get it. We tourism firms
benefit from these regulations,” said Cem Polatoğlu, Baracuda’s general
manager. “So far we have sold eight tours to [Turkish] Cyprus, five to Crimea
and three to Bosnia,” said Polatoğlu.
Customers will spend the first day of their abortion tour
sight-seeing in their destination of choice before undergoing the medical
operation the following day and recuperating on the third and fourth day of the
Polatoğlu said those who have so far purchased abortion
tours have not exceeded the age of 35 and that all have been from Istanbul,
with the exception of one who is from İzmit.
Baracuda Tur charges 299 euros for an abortion tour to
Crimea, $600 for one to Bosnia and 1,200 pounds for the same tour to England.
