Abusive husbands push for abortions in Ghana, too

Tabloid News of Friday, 24 March 2006
An attempt by a 28-year-old woman, Asibi Asuang, to abort a 3-month-old pregnancy after her husband's threat to eject her from their matrimonial home, has led to her untimely death in Bawku.

Now, should we just have made it easy for the husband to bully her into a "safe-n-legal" abortion, or do we need to build a society where women can escape men like that. Or -- best of all -- a world where women wouldn't be involved with abusive men to begin with because they know how to spot and avoid them, and they know in their hearts that the deserve better in the first place.
