(KOREA TIMES) An obstetrician has been sentenced to three years and six months in prison for killing a baby who "burst out crying" during abortion procedures.
The Seoul Central District Court on Friday convicted the doctor, 65, surnamed Yun, of killing a 34-week-old baby and suspended Yun's medical license for three years.
"Medical staff who participated in the operation have consistently said they heard the baby crying," a three-judge panel of the court said in a statement. "It is clear that the doctor killed the baby, who was born alive."
