This year we have taken into consideration the sudden rise in teenage pregnancy and unsafe abortion in the country. Abortion cases are on the increase, particularly in the urban areas and among the rich and educated because people do not want pregnancy to hamper their progress , forgetting the dangers of it.
Women who undergo unsafe abortion suffer some immediate and long term complications. The most comon ones are infections, excessive bleeding, ripping or perforation of the uterus, anesthesia complications, convulsions, liver cancer, etc…
Liams Foundation came up with some projects that seek to address these issues.
These projects would rectify the following among others;
• Access to accurate and relevant sexual education
• Existence of laws and enforcement of those laws for child support and statutory rape/coercion/abuse of teenage girls by both old and young men.
