Response to Eugene Bahizi’s letter on abortion
Much as I respect Bahizi’s opinion regarding safe abortions, I still do not condemn the women rights’ group for expressing their concern over the controversial abortion issue.
This will remain so long as long as we still have pro-choice and pro-life sides of the same coin.
Instead, I would praise the women rights group and the government for allowing a participatory approach to the issue.
For them to raise the red flag on likely delays in the legal and medical procedure is valid and deserves to be paid attention to.
I would advocate for an expeditious (time bound) legal process, presided over, preferably, by a female judge and in a closed session.
