It is true abortion in Uganda is illegal.However there are circumstances where it is allowed with the approval of a doctor on medical grounds.It is also worrying to note that Uganda spends 14M USD per year on post abortion care.Majority of Ugandas maternal death are related to post abortion complications. Accessing safe abortion is a rights issue where a women has to chose between life and death.Our Parliament should be reminded on how and why they should act fast to enact relevant laws and guidelines on ensuring that death from unsafe abortion ends. Our approach none the less will be to refer women and girls to health professionals such that they do not die from post abortion complications.
