It was recently discovered that schoolgirls in Ghana are resorting to having abortions on clothing hangers, which is a frightening and alarming trend that needs to be addressed.
According to the anonymous source, Girls in Senior High Schools (SHS) are now using clothing hangers to carry out self-induced abortions, a practice that has raised eyebrows on social media.
According to the source, the procedure entails using a kitchen fire or a lighter to sterilize the clothes hanger’s neck and pointed side.
After that, the fetus is coaxed from the womb by twisting the hanger, which is put into the vag like a plastic.
The usage of this procedure, according to the source, may have grave and fatal repercussions. A lot of girls who adopt this technique bleed extensively, and some even pass away. This risky behavior is known as “Go To Hell.”
This revelation highlights the dire need for better access to safe and legal abortion in Ghana.
Girls are forced to use risky and perhaps fatal methods, including using clothes hangers, since they lack access to safe and legal abortion options. In order to teach young girls about their reproductive rights and provide them the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their bodies and their health, comprehensive sêx education is urgently needed in schools.
It is crucial to keep in mind that these girls aren’t making these decisions carelessly; rather, they’re doing so because they lack access to safe and ethical alternatives. Instead of condemning or stigmatizing these girls, society must embrace and educate them.
Social media users have expressed shock and concern over this revelation.
It is clear that this issue is one that must be addressed and the conversation needs to be had in the open.
The government and associated organizations must act to improve young girls’ and women’s access to safe and legal abortion options as well as to information and assistance.
