I was very horrified to read about this article.Frankly, I was sick to my stomarch.What has become of our women? as a publich health student I was happy to read that Dr Mensah and his colleagues are doing thire best to save the situation.However, I think more needs to be done.The Government needs to involve the accredited community leaders like Churches,women organizations, and Local Chiefs andElders to educate our Women about potential health risks involved.Men should also be held more accountable for thier sexual behaviours because most of these women tend to do abortions due to lack of financial supports from thier male partners.Thank you

This method of abortion has been going on for long time. I first heard of it when my cousin died in 1983 of a similar incident and it was a horrible site. So I did some research in the village where it happen and also talk to people who have been through the process. The logic behind this method is that the cassava stick and some other plants do have some form of acidic properties so when inserted it erodes the cervix and the sac in the uterus which causes the abortion. The sad news is that since they can not see the direction of the stick it ends up damaging other organs and also sometimes the stick produces too much acid than needed. In the case of my cousin before she died her whole uterus including her some organs came out. As already indicated we need to educate these girls, open communications between parents and children and provide some form of free private counseling to women.

This is an alarming piece of information. Parliament will have to quickly address the foundamental question of reconciling "Women's right, Unwanted pregnances and Marriage" within the context of Ghanaian culture. And please, do not involve your personal religious beliefs and inclinations into the deliberation!!

Whatever happened to family planning and the pill. Ghanaian women should be supplied free of charge by the Social services, and the men should stop doing the "Bone to Bone" and use condoms("Kote socks"). PLEASE.

A desperate person does desperate things. If the women in question cannot afford the amount involved in terminating the pregnancy the right way, what do you expect?

Cheap talk, Bring solution and prove your research with real documents instead of the usual Africanism methods.

what is so special in the volta Region to opt out from the nation? If volta Region were to have more minerals like the Ashanti Region, what will you do? You are not a real voltarian .From Togo shut up and leave volta Region alone. Agbozume in china and so what?

Poverty and lack of education are the results of these actions.

We need to educate them and get them into proper employment. Not to forget a better health service. We have a huge job to undertake.
