From the four articles that was available, I had chosen Motherhood in
Crisis where the author Heela, was raped and became pregnant. I chose this
story out of the four because we have a similar problem happeneing in the
US that has been gaining traction as well, The problem with women having
abortions. I find it interesting that even in a third-world country, we
have the same problems here, despite having the resources to properly
solve problems. Though a thought came up while reading the article, why
isn't abortion a option for Heela? Though there are risks, the article
made it seem like it was all back-alley hospitals that did it and it poses
a risk to her life. If so why doesn't the goverement there provide
procedure, is it looked down upon or what?
Besides that, when she spoke of living with the other girls and how they got to eat more and had the support with counseling, it seemed like it was better living there than with just her grandmother, with her father not taking care of her. This reminded me of a story where a homeless person in the US got arrested on purpose so he could get heart treatment since the prison would then have to treat him for free. I still can't understand why the father would not take care of his daugther after his wife died, but besides that healthcare really should be universal, Heela could have avoided such trauma.
