In Uganda buying abortion pills has become as easy as buying sweets. Our undercover reporter went to a number of pharmacies in Kampala and procured the pills, to find out how easy it is.
What do you suppose happens if self-abortion is not a crime?
Dollars to doughnuts, abortion pill pushers will come on the scene.
We know it's already being done in New York City.
Women put themselves into a lot of danger when they attempt abortion by themselves because they're at the mercy of advice like this:
I walked into another pharmacy, disrupting a light-skinned lady who was reading a newspaper. I told her I needed to terminate my pregnancy. “Three months, it is no longer blood,” she said. She asked me to pay sh25,000 and asked that I have a seat.
After three minutes, she called me and instructed me on how to use the tablets. “I am not very sure whether these drugs will do the miscarriage because your pregnancy is a bit advanced. These drugs are effective in the first eight weeks of pregnancy but give it a try.”
I'm not sure if this will work, but here, try it! What could possibly go wrong!
Except a retained fetus or placenta. No biggee!
The reason it's a crime for women to self-abort is the same reason we have seatbelt laws.
