India: Abortions in the rise

Posted by African Press International on October 28, 2013

There has been a rise in the number of abortions cases amongst tribal women in the Attapadi settlements in Palakkad. During the last 20 days, 10 abortion cases were reported among tribal women in Attapadi. All together 26 cases of abortion has been reported in Attapadi.

More than half the abortion cases here is of mothers in their second delivery.The alarming increase in abortion cases shows that the measures exerted by the government to identify high risk mothers and provide them medical care and nutritious food has failed.

Moreover the UNICEF directive for improved surveillance to prevent recurrence of infant deaths has not been implemented yet. The UNICEF had suggested community based integrated maternal and new-born child illness scheme and improved dietary practices for pregnant women and lactating mother.
