Her last abortion was an elective abortion on an understanding that with 7 living children, 5 boys and 2 girls. Chronic Diabetic poorly controlled and a housewife. This time round she would have an elective abortion and BTL. Her husband was not in at the time. He arrived just when we were in theatre about to perform the two procedures!! We did neither of the procedures as we were unable to convince the man it was for the benefit of his wife nor could he accept vasectomy. He refused!! 3:  3 Issues Decision making in RH and Health in general Decision making linked to economic empowerment Decision making linked to cultural norms and practices 4:  4 “A woman who has decided to procure an abortion will go ahead and have it irrespective of any other opinions to the contrary, the risks to her life not withstanding.” “PROVIDERS” 5:  5 In spite of the high fertility rates in Sub Saharan Africa, contraceptive prevalence is very low. It has been found that 30% of women control their fertility by a combination of contraceptives and abortion and 3% use abortion only as a means of fertility control. 6:  6 “Unsafe abortion is preventable yet remains a significant cause of Maternal Mortality in Sub Saharan Africa.” 7:  7 GLOBALLY: 53 million abortions occur annually 20 million unsafe abortion occur annually 96% of unsafe abortions in Africa are unsafe 85% of abortions in Latin America unsafe Reasons for Procuring Abortion 8:  Reasons for Procuring Abortion 8 Education & career Peer pressure and feared parental reaction Partner pressure, refusing to recognize child Birth spacing or limiting all together Owner of pregnancy Parents, Age mate, Incest Methods used for Procuring Abortion 9:  Methods used for Procuring Abortion 9 Sharp objects Knitting needles, bicycle wires Plant stems Concoctions Strong juices, Liquid soap, overdose of drugs, Herbals Vaginally inserted laundry detergents Ground glass gulped as powders Decision Making for Abortion 10:  Decision Making for Abortion 10 “When a woman becomes pregnant in Sub-Saharan Africa whether or not that pregnancy is wanted and the subsequent events that follow may not entirely be her decision”.

Response and Management of Unsafe Abortion: 16:  Response and Management of Unsafe Abortion: 16 “Mum, young lady, in this hospital we only treat women who are already aborting, we don’t start it here, the law does not allow!” The message by that answer is clear! “Go and induce it by whatever means and then come back!” The case of the women who have suffered unsafe abortion for along time has been to say the least unfortunate.
