Jordan’s hysterectomy debate

Parents of mentally ill push for right to decide on operation for their children.

Some parents of mentally ill children in Jordan are pushing for the use of hysterectomies to stop their children falling pregnant.

They argue the operation to remove the womb is vital and would make life better for the women, but many Muslims believe that it would go against Islamic law.
