The woman has not done anything wrong. She got rid of pregnancy she did not want – I guess the man who impregnated her did not want the child either. Can the police arrest the biological father as well. This demonstrates why Malawi needs Abortion to be legalized. Let our parliamentarians pass the abortion bill. Abortion is happening everyday! Our population is too high!


This not murder, The woman rid herself of a parasite, When 10% of babies at birth and shortly after the woman has done the right thing.
Wake up Malawi your population is to high and will only get larger. You can not feed the nation now.Allow abortions force condum use curb population growth before it is to late. Stop unwanted pregnancy, Madonna cannot adopt anymore children and no one else is asking. Free this woman for she did the right thing,


The Malawian police,you always do in hasty issues of the poor but when the rich commits crime u are always slow in acting. Leave this woman alone. Was the pregnant yours?
