We must hold the line against the rollback of women’s rights

Anne* was 14 years old when she was raped walking to visit her grandmother. When she missed her period, she realised she was pregnant. Her grandmother took her to a local herbalist who gave her some herbs to induce an abortion. Anne started bleeding heavily.
Luckily a counsellor arrived, explained what was happening and told her grandmother Anne needed to be rushed to a health centre, where her life was saved.
