Police are investigating doctors at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center on Friday, on suspicion that they told the parents of a mentally disabled 14-year-old girl that they were removing a tumor, when in fact they were performing an abortion.

The girl, who is now 17 years old, has reportedly been pregnant three times, and doctors hid all three abortions. Her parents say that the doctors presented them with papers saying that they were removing tumors.
