MHC starts a three part mini series on unsafe abortions. Nearly 25% of all maternal deaths in Ghana are the result of unsafe abortions, usually in backstreets or in the hands of quacks or unskilled medical personnel.
In this mini series, we meet women who believe that the only way forward is an open discussion. “Diana” talks courageously about going through 11 unsafe abortions in two years. “Adaeze" shares her traumatic experiences. Both share key insights into the minds of young girls and women who choose to terminate their pregnancy and shed light on the way forward.
