Banja La Mtsogolo declares support for abortion legalisation

48

Malawi’s leading reproductive health service provider, Banja La Mtsogolo (BLM), has backed calls for legalization of safe abortion in the country arguing that many women are dying due to unsafe abortion.

Speaking during celebrations of 30 years of providing reproductive health services in Malawi, BLM has supported calls to legalize safe abortion saying that the move can help in saving a lot of resources and lives of women.

BLM country director Nicky Matthews said Malawi should consider legalizing safe abortion to save lives of many women who go for unsafe abortion.

“The debate is about legalization of safe abortion, currently it’s illegal in Malawi, the concern is that they come later after unsafe methods and we spend a lot of time, resources and sometimes they die,” said Matthews.

She added that BLM is to provide free family planning services for the coming 90 days, to ensure that men and women have quality reproductive health service.

However a debate has ensued on the controversial issue of legalization of safe abortion in Malawi as religious leaders have described the move to be ‘evil’.

In Malawi, an abortion can only be legal in special cases such as when the life of the expectant mother is in danger.

Last year, churches in Malawi organized a mass protest against legalization of safe abortion arguing that the act goes contrary to the teaching of the Bible.

While health experts in the country are calling for legalization of safe abortion claiming that the country can save huge sums of money used to treat complications that come about due to unsafe abortion.

BLM is a Malawian healthcare Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) established in 1987 to sustain family planning programs and is a senior member of Marie Stopes International Global Partnership.

  9. Shocked!!! Banja La Mtsogolo Would Rather Safeguard The Life Of A Grown Up Person Whose Life Is Threatened By The Very Person’s Choice To Kill A Helpless Unborn Baby – That Doesn’t Have A Choice In Its Own Conception? Why Protect Killers Who Have A Choice To Avoid Pregnancy?

  10. Don’t just arguing for the sake of raising debate,for those who seeks safe abortion let them access the facility after all God won’t punish you on their behalf.Because everybody shall face judgment!

  11. Abortion is murder. PERIOD! Banja La Mtsogolo are supporters of murder.

    Think of the stupidity here…

    “BLM country director Nicky Matthews said Malawi should consider legalizing safe abortion to save lives of many women who go for unsafe abortion.”

    So they want to murder lives to save lives? How stupid is that? Burn in Hell Nicky Matthews and BLM.

    And by the way, research the origins of this child-murder. It was originally started to murder as many black and crippled people as possible – Margaret Sanger openly called black people “weeds”. 100 years later they are still targeting predominantly black areas around the world.

  12. it wrong and it is also gud, now it is gud bcoz it will help to save girls life’s from unprotected abortions , on de other side it is bad in de way dat it will help de spread of H.i.v coz fanz izingodyana ma plain heavy coz of de confidennce dat dey will terminate de unborn kid

    • If someone assists another person to commit murder, they too are guilty of murder. Why let this happen legally just because they call themselves doctors?

      Sorry but I have zero sympathy for anyone committing abortion, if they die during the process then let that be a lesson to them. Of course if a woman has murdered their child via an abortion, they can still call upon the name of the Lord to get saved, and forgiven, but that doesn’t change that they are murderers.

  13. Why are they having unprotected sex if they knw that they can fall pregnant. Let them die. Now u are incouraging Women to hav unprotecte sex coz they knw that they can hav a safe abortion. Oh God pls help us. #KILLING the innocent un born Babies

  14. Support for the education of girls who are sleeping around, to change their behavior for their bright future and the future of the country. Not that useless abortion legalization.

  15. Zopusa basi, no wonder the name BLM, lam’tsogolo banja of fornicators, mumangokhalira kudya mankwala akulera ku ofesi kwanu eti, how many children have you aborted yourselves BLM officials??? God will judge you unless you repent!

  16. zimenezo nde ayi..advise them to use condoms or keep the unborn..unless u want to be using the unborn child for something to benefit then you can do that..
