Following reports that unsafe abortions are still being carried out and leading to the death of mothers and young girls in Malawi, health experts are appealing to the relevant authorities for the legalisation of safe abortion.
A 2009 research conducted by the Coalition for the Prevention of Unsafe Abortion (COPUA) found that at the time 67,000 women had unsafe abortions in Malawi.
At the time this cost the government US$1 million to treat complications.
