Johannesburg - A 21-year-old woman, her mother and a bogus doctor have been arrested for illegal abortion and concealment of birth in Zola, Soweto, Gauteng police said on Friday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said the three were arrested on Thursday, after a newborn baby was found dead wrapped in a plastic bag behind a toilet.

The young mother fell sick, and was taken to hospital after giving birth. It was suspected that she drank a concoction to abort the baby.

Her mother, 45, and a bogus Ugandan doctor, 30, who gave her the drink, were arrested. They were expected to appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    so you wait for nearly 9 months and then all of a sudden it's "oops, i dont want it"???? Our constitution affords us so many opportunities for such situations, but people still choose illegal and dangerous 'quick' fixes. its disgusting

    The three of them could have looked after that baby together. Now they rather abort the child together. To top it all, all three of them are adults. So sad that it is yet again an innocent child.

    it is amazing that oly three aests have been made.i live and own a shop in richmond kzn. i complained in writing to the local municipality and police about "safe abortion" posters and handbills being pasted on shop pillars,eskom substations.traffic signs,telkom boxes etc.the frustating part, is that these posters cannot be removed easily.our whole town is being defaced and no action is being taken.there was also an incident last year, where a young girl flung her baby out of a moving taxi.both she and a so called doctor was arrested , but of course, nothing s being done about the existance of these "doctors".if only the police or govt. can do something about it.

    I'm probably missing it here but - why have these reptiles been arrested on a charge of illegal abortion, surely the charge should be pre-meditated murder? My daughter recently miscarried her first child, the resultant trauma has been crushing and then I read about the scum in this article wantonly taking the life of a child - they are deserving of nothing less than the wrath of an angry God.
