Abortion (1)
Abortion has been a widely debated subject across the globe in some western European countries being legalized. Unsafe abortions being carried out in Kenya is a leading cause of maternal and mortality. In Kenya abortion is a crime unless under very special circumstances like saving the life of the mother. Nonetheless people still commit the crime through various ways that are harmful both to the mother and the unborn child and may even result to death. The need for secrecy to avoid being condemned, the law, and the perceived high cost of safer abortion, have been known to be the reason why so many of our young women die during this process as they seek help from community midwives, drug sellers and untrained helpers at lower costs. Some of the common methods that have been used include drinking tea that has a high concentration of tealeaves, drinking a lot of undiluted juice and in some cases even drinking a mixture of washing detergent like ‘omo’ has been said to do the trick.
