Maternal Health

Maternal Health issues against the “Reproductive Health (RH)” Bill


In World Youth Alliance’s International Solidarity Forum (ISF) last March 2010, the following important information was given:

–In the talk given by Dr. Rebecca Austen during the ISF in March, she explained the top causes of maternity mortality being the following:

  1. Infection
  2. Hemorrhage
  3. Obstetric fistula/labor
  4. Hypertensive disorder

–Clearly, NONE of the proposals in the family planning (RH Bill) programs has got anything to do with resolving these problems.  And yet, what the family planning (RH Bill) proposals contain are: contraceptives, condoms, etc.: objects which have to do with prevention of pregnancy instead of assisting mother & child (and providing true health & happiness) during & after childbirth.
