A BOGUS gynaecologist who performed an abortion on a 14-year-old was jailed for a year yesterday. Pang Kwai-wan, 52, carried out the operation on Lau Kit-ying at an illegal clinic she had run for about 10 years. Afterwards, the schoolgirl said Pang showed her a bloody object and told her it was the baby before flushing it down a toilet. Kit-ying was given no anaesthetic and was in pain during the operation, the High Court heard. She was referred to Pang by another bogus doctor, Leung Chi-lan, 59, who received a six-month suspended sentence. Prosecutor Albert Wong said Kit-ying had gone to see Leung at her unregistered clinic in Tuen Mun on August 27 last year. When tests showed she was pregnant, the girl begged Leung to arrange an abortion. Two days later, Leung took the teenager to her friend Pang at her Yan On Gynaecological Clinic in Yuen Long. Kit-ying paid $70 for the test and $2,600 for the abortion. 'After the operation, the defendant showed Miss Lau the object covered in blood and told her it was the baby,' said Mr Wong. 'She discarded the object in the toilet bowl and flushed it away.' Police found all the apparatus needed to perform abortions in the clinic. The court heard it was the third time Pang had been hauled before the courts for running an illegal clinic since 1985. On the two previous occasions, she was also convicted of possessing antibiotics and poisons. But defence counsel Cissy Lam said it was not a case of two cowboy practitioners posing as doctors. Both women had graduated from medical school in China in the 1960s. But they would need to do more exams to be registered in Hong Kong. Ms Lam said it was understandable the women did not want to start studying again in English at their age. She told the judge Leung had only run a 'very limited practice' restricted to pregnancy testing. 'It was the girl who said she didn't want the baby. The defendant said she should go to the Family Planning Association, but the girl refused. 'She begged Leung to introduce her to someone who would do an abortion. She said she did not want the baby, she was young, a student, and she would be in a lot of trouble if her family found out. 'She begged and begged. Leung was acting with good intentions.' Ms Lam said Pang had known what she was doing and the abortion had gone smoothly. Both women admitted running illegal clinics and using an instrument with intent to procure a miscarriage. Pang was fined $1,000 and jailed for a year. Leung was fined $1,200 and given a six-month sentence, suspended for two years. Passing sentence, Deputy Judge Wong said the girl should have been given counselling first, adding that she could suffer psychological affects in future. He added: 'I accept it was the girl who asked for an abortion because she was afraid of being found out by her family . . . and that this is a social problem as well. 'I accept Pang has medical knowledge and is capable of carrying out an abortion. 'But abortion is a serious offence which warrants a custodial sentence.'
