Dr Jehu-Appiah of Ghana have the last word:
Despite Ghana having a more progressive law than many African countries, he believes there should be no law on abortion at all, following in the footsteps of countries like Canada where the maternal mortality rate is very low, “if we did not have a law restricting abortions we would be able to reduce this figure to zero.” He added “a woman of 15-25 years old does not deserve to die just because she is pregnant.”
