In 1992, thousands of Bosnian Muslim girls and women were systematically raped by Serbian fighters and held captive for months to prevent abortion. The mass rapes and forced pregnancies were part of the "ethnic cleansing" campaign.
Some of the women released from the "rape camps" were able to obtain second trimester abortions.
Since the war, there has been a steep rise in the abortion rate, with more abortions than live births in some areas.
In Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, Dr Ocivik, one of the leading abortionists, had a dramatic change of heart. After performing by his own estimate 70,000 abortions, he now leads the local pro-life movement.
