about 2 weeks ago, my second column on health and wellness- Break the Taboo Against Abortion NOW– was published in Stabroek News. there were *zero* comments on the article online, and the only response i got was this letter- Men’s role in Abortion– from Vidyaratha Kissoon..
meanwhile, this- hospitalised woman denies connection to dead foetus; infanticide charge pending– happened. SIGH. 33 years old. mother of 10 already. now facing charge of infanticide. WHO IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF HER 10 CHILDREN IF SHE IS JAILED?? ABORTION IS (THEORETICALLY) LEGAL IN GUYANA! WHY WHY WHY THEN IS SHE IN THIS SHIT? NO BIRTH CONTROL/ FAMILY PLANNING. FORCED TO RESORT TO THIS. AND NOW FACING A JAIL SENTENCE. I REPEAT- WHO IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF HER 10 CHILDREN WHEN THE POLICE LOCK HER UP????
