Kenyans on Wednesday expressed their concerns over Susan Kihika’s Abortion Bill, with some supporting the legalization of abortion while others were against it. The legislator has also dismissed reports doing rounds on social media that she has withdrawn the motion. Here are some of the reactions from Kenyans:
The Bill, labelled Reproductive Healthcare Bill 2019 advocates for a safe and legal abortion. The bill will make Comprehensive Sexuality Education legal through its article 27. It will also make available abortion services that cater for adolescents.
If this bill is passed, any woman who walks into a clinic and gives consent for abortion will be allowed to procure it.
