Abortions in Kenya

Half a million abortions every year, 64% by married women? This is crazy what are contraceptives for, contraceptives are also cheaper than abortions.

Some women have become serial abortionists like this case of "Sandra says she has lost count of the many times she has had an abortion. I have done it so many times and I don't know how it happens, I just find myself in the situation. I have even become a regular customer in the place where I go for the procedure,” she says. - see more

She also says "My husband doesn't want another child and when I use contraceptives, he complains so I cannot go for them and neither does he want to use condoms,” says the mother of two, adding that she has never considered a permanent method of family planning".

I don't understand why a woman can risk her life and leave her children suffering for the sake of a man. This is a very inconsiderate couple who need help, if the man doesn't want other children and has a problem with contraceptives he should get a vasectomy done.

It is also sad that girls loose their uterus and ability to get children because of abortions done by quacks.

This is a serious issue, something needs to be done.
