One Margaret, 26, is among many Ugandan women who are at risk of suffering severe complications arising from unsafe abortion.
Margaret, a resident of Kazo Angola zone in Kampala, recently told The Observer that she almost died while terminating her pregnancy using local herbs. She was forced to come to Kawempe General hospital for proper care.
The mother of one says her second pregnancy came about after being raped late one night as she returned home from work. So, she decided to carry out an abortion.
