Mauritius: the abortion debate

Christina Meetoo's take on the abortion debate in Mauritius. “On the whole, their discourse is basically geared towards instilling a feeling of guilt in people, specially women. And today, Mgr Piat in L’Express declares that the State should not be neutral on that issue, claiming that the government should protect little children indiscriminately, be they unborn.”

    should abortion be legalised in mauritius

  • stella

    I believe that abortion is something that should be legalized in Mauritius, in an ideal world it would not be nessesary but we do not live in an ideal world. Young people make mistakes, girls are victims of incest, rape and women with ill health and to many children suffer, babies are born into poverty and the lives of them their mothers and families are blighted
