Executive Board Member for Centre for Development of People (CEDEP) Reverend Macdonald Sembereka has insisted that Malawi needs at all cost to adopt the newly proposed Abortion Laws which he said will greatly assist in reducing cases of maternal deaths.

Sembereka was speaking prior to the March protest against the legalization of Abortion in Malawi as well as issues to do with same sex marriages.

Rev. Sembereka told Nyasa Times on Sunday 27th September 2016 that issues to do with safe abortion require a sober analysis.

“There’s a distortion that where a law admits such then there will be a blanket licence for anyone to undergo such. However, science and evidence has it that many abortions are done unsafely and women’s lives are lost where such could be prevented, as a nation and perhaps
churches aren’t we called to good stewardship and being responsible creators,” Reverend Sembereka said.
