Iran lawmakers approve birth-control surgeries ban

Published: 06.24.14, 20:06 / Israel News

TEHRAN - An Iranian semi-official news agency is reporting that lawmakers have approved a bill criminalizing performing birth-control surgeries amid a drop in the country's population.


The Tuesday report by the ISNA news agency says 106 lawmakers out of 207 voted for the bill, which would imprison those performing vasectomies and tubal ligations for two to five years.


The bill requires more debate and ratification by a constitutional watchdog before becoming law. (AP)
