According to the Sydney Morning Herald, abortionist Suman Sood was found guilty on two counts of performing an illegal abortion. She was found innocent of manslaughter because there was conflicting testimony regarding whether the child was born alive or not. Sood's sentence is pending. According to the Age, each illegal abortion charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in jail.
Sood gave abortion drugs to a woman who was 23 weeks pregnant. The woman later gave birth on a toilet.
