Beware men: five years for forcing women to abort

46

Among other reasons on why women terminate pregnancy is because they are forced by men who impregnate them, but the revised termination of pregnancy bill seeks to have such men given a maximum jail term of five years.

Confirming on the new development, chief law reform officer at Malawi Law Commission Mike Chinoko said when the bill is approved to be a law, men are to be jailed if reported to have forced women terminate pregnancy.

PregnancyChinoko added that termination of pregnancy bill is not opening doors for abortion to be legalized but to allow it to be conducted when a woman has been raped or defiled in just mentioning some cases.

“When we went around and inquired on the causes of unsafe abortion, most women disclosed that they were forced to terminate pregnancy against their wish by men,” said Chinoko.

A recent study by Guttmacher disclosed that 141,000 abortions occurred in Malawi in 2015, at an annual rate of 38 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age all of which indicates that abortion is common in the country.

The majority of these procedures were performed under clandestine and unsafe conditions and often resulted in complications.

Meanwhile Malawi is yet to decide on whether to legalize abortion as various stakeholders give their views on the matter.

  1. Firstly, anybody involved in murdering an unborn child should be put to death, but given how abortion-genocide is legal overseas then at least it is being punished.

    Secondly, how can this Guttmacher claim the number of abortions in Malawi per year if it is illegal, this means they have either made it up or they have got confessions from women who committed this murder, and this makes Guttmacher complicit to mass murder in Malawi because they would be harbouring murderers (by not reporting them to the authorities).

  2. Modern laws seemed to be against men in all corners. Learned lawyers and learned society is giving a deaf ear to fellow men for personal interests.. to be specific for donner aid ..you are killing the nation only to feed your stomach

    If you send to a girl some cash for transport to come over but she decides not come over and does not refund that money…

    You can refer to *Section 492(i) of the Criminal Procedure Act* & file a case of theft under false pretence, & she can be jailed for up to 7 years?

    Apa Ambiri alikundende Eishiiiii.
