US woman to be airlifted to Spain after being denied termination of pregnancy in Malta

38-year-old American woman Andrea Prudente, aged 38, will be airlifted to Spain to carry out an abortion after being denied the procedure in Malta.

Lawyer Lara Dimitrijevic confirmed that the couple’s travel insurance will cover the air ambulance to Mallorca, where the procedure will be held, due to the situation being classified as “life-threatening”.

The couple could leave Malta for the Hospital Universitari Son Espases as early as Thursday, stating that they are “very relieved” that the end to their ordeal is within reach.

Doctors had advised the couple that the baby has no chance of survival, despite their being a heartbeat, but could not do anything unless her life was in imminent danger. Due to this complication, the couple were waiting for the foetus to die with fears that the mother could contract a life-threatening infection as a result.

Malta remains the only EU country with a blanket ban on abortion, with the latest pro-choice demonstration being held outside Parliament on Wednesday with placards exhibiting arguments such as “Abortion is safe and necessary” and “My body, my choice, my country, my voice.”

@khaby.lame If @50 Cent had to do a casting in the 19th century. 🤣 #learnfromkhaby #learnontiktok @tiktok @tiktokcreators ♬ sonido original – 0riginal_G7

The Italy-based prankster has gained millions upon millions of fans and currently stands at 142.2 million followers, as opposed to D’Amelio’s 142.1 million, thanks to his tongue-in-cheek approach towards the social media platform’s trends.

The 22-year-old prankster’s universal appeal may be attributed to his lack of dialogue and dependance on body language, making him a personality which appeals to all users, regardless of language.

Lame has had quite a busy few weeks, gaining 3 million followers in the span of one month thanks to the hashtag #KhabyToNumberOne, along with his recent collaboration with luxury brand Boss, amongst others.
