Uganda Government clarify no plan to legalize abortion

Uganda Government clarifies that there is no plan to legalize abortion in the country.

The minister for health, Dr. Jane Aceng explains that the post abortion management policy and reducing maternal mobility and mortality which many keep referring to was halted.

About two weeks ago, religious leaders under Inter-Religious Council issued a statement arguing they had learnt about plans in the ministry to legalize abortion.

The Director General of Health Services Dr. Anthony Mbonye is one of those known to be pushing for the post abortion management policy.

Defending the policy recently, Mbonye said there were over three hundred thousand abortions in Uganda each year and that the vast majority were unsafe.
