I happen to watch this movie named 4MONTHS, 3WEEKS and 2 DAYS which has plunged me into deeper contemplation on the poignant realities of world where Unsafe abortion are still avoidable tragedies in many countries. Though the abortion in the movie does not result out to be unsafe but the context in which the abortion was provided could have fostered equal probability unsafe abortion. She could have been the victim of unsafe abortion and died .The cost at which these abortion takes place in countries where abortion are illegal and punishable are really harsh and unimaginable. Being the part of this global world it has inspired me to be vocal about the statements as THERE IS NO SUCH THINGS CALLED NO ABORTION, THERE IS EITHER SAFE ABORTION OR UNSAFE ABORTION regarding the safe abortion and the strict laws that compels women towards the unsafe abortion.
I live in country Nepal where Maternal mortality was around 538 per 100000 live birth and unsafe abortion accounted majorly to this data. In 2002 when the government decided to legalize abortion, there were challenges and hurdles but bitter reality of Maternal mortality was way too important than the other intersectional issues that hindered the safe abortion act to come into play. 10 yrs down the lane after the safe abortion policy have come into play, the statistics have been revised and it shows that maternal mortality have steeply declined to 229 per 100000 live birth(NDHS,2011).Researches conducted have shown that legalization of abortion played a major role in this decreased MMR. Had the government of my countries been so rigid in legalizing the abortion they would never been able to save those innocent lives. I could imagine women in my countries too had to suffer in the same way as main protagonist in the movie did. Who knows how many of them were exploited for access to abortion?? So correlating the movie with the scenario of my country and comparing with the country where abortion is very strict and illegal will always direct the message as there is no such words called NO ABORTION there is only either UNSAFE OR SAFE so why opt for unsafe and increase maternal mortality or morbidity instead let women decide over the body as the basic fundamental Human right, women right and Sexual and reproductive rights and make abortion safe and legal.
