Abstract: Abortion is an issue that evokes passionate sentiments in East Africa, and particularly Kenya, where some politicians and members of the clergy have expressed reservations about a clause in the draft constitution that allegedly permits it. This edition of Kimasomaso delves deep into the issue of birth-related maternal deaths in Kenya, most of which are as a result of induced abortions. Psychological and physical effects of abortion are elaborated in detail. There is also a moving testimony of a girl whose circumstances forced her to procure an abortion.
