Going into new territory
November 14, 2019
ROOTS last Friday had a community dialogue on TOP with the Muslim community at Stapleford for the first time!
Deliberations unmasked many topical issues and some of them being that abortions are happening and conducted in unsafe ways and that most girls and women are selling sex and pregnancy isn’t good for business.
Some of the young girls are indulging at a young age and end up getting pregnant and because of wanting to conform to community norms they abort unsafely.There is also inadequate contraception and girls and women get unintended pregnancies which end in unsafe abortions.
Evidence is there that women and girls are dying we need the government to legalise safe termination of pregnancies because we keep losing lives and PAC is not adequately provided because the economic situation is bad and the state of hospitals is pathetic.
