Kenya backstreet abortions
Abortion is the talking point in Kenya at the moment. A mock trial highlighting the 300,000 illegal terminations and 3000 deaths from backstreet abortions every year was disrupted by pro-life demonstrators earlier this week..... as a consequence four pro-choice participants were forced to abandon the forum in Nairobi... And abortion has been at the centre of debate since.
We're going to be picking up on the discussion in detail on Monday's programme but we're already getting emails about it...
Dr Olungah in Nairobi writes
In this country, when a young girl in school gets pregnant, she is expelled from school, ostracised by her parents, ex-communicated from church, shunned by her peers and abandoned by her boyfriend. She faces a double if not triple tragedy. The morality so common in our African backyard must now be challenged.
Mike also in Nairobi says
Abortion should never be legalised in Africa. Africans unlike Europeans are known to be sexually irresponsible, and legalising this satanic act of murder will culminate in more vices and escalate the hiv/aids pandemic.
