Abortion clinic raided in Bangkok

From the Bangkok Post:
Police were acting on an anonymous tip that an abortion clinic was operating in Phahon Yothin area.
They raided the clinic after an assigned patrol police was refused entry to it, Pol Lt Amnart Harn-Chana, deputy chief of the Bang Sue police, said.
He said police had to pressure the clinic's staff to open its door after they refused to co-operate for more than 40 minutes.
Police found a seven-months pregnant woman, aged 21, at the clinic. She was sent to Ratchawithee hospital....
The clinic provided services for women who were six to seven months pregnant, at the rate of 30,000 baht.

30,000 baht is equivalent to about $1,000 U.S. dollars.
