Authorities in Kenya have banned the international health organization Marie Stopes from offering any form of abortion services.

The Medical Practitioners Board says it made the decision after investigating complaints that the group’s adverts are promoting abortion.

Abortion is illegal in Kenya unless a mother’s health is in danger.

Marie Stopes says it operates within the law, offering counseling services including post-abortion care.

The head of the government agency in charge of approving adverts, Alfred Mutua, welcomed the ban and accused the previous US government of causing moral decay in Kenya by promoting abortion.
