Maternal Health Channel: Young People Talk About Unsafe Abortions And Reproductive Health

Maternal Health Channel: Young People Talk About Unsafe Abortions And Reproductive Health
LISTEN AUG 26, 2013

Thursday 29 August on GTV at 8pm
Friday 30 August on TV3 at 8.30pm

We conclude our mini - series on unsafe abortion in Madina, Accra, very close to the back street abortion clinic operated by the infamous 'Dr. Drah'. He performed hundreds of illegal abortions and even had unprotected sex with some of his clients. The shocking revelations, supported by video evidence from undercover investigator, Anas, hit the national headlines in June 2012.

The question many people were asking was; why are so many young girls and women willing to risk gross abuse and even their lives at the hands of such back street quacks? We gathered a representative group of young people, especially young women to find out why and more besides. It was a unique conversation that laid bare current thinking about sex, pregnancy and contraception, social stigma and dilemmas and what young people believe to be the ways forward.
