Kenyan Rights Group Asks Govt to Support Abortion Service Seekers

A coalition of civil society organisations has particularly taken an issue with billboards erected in parts of Nairobi that portray abortion as murder and argue such blanket condemnation may lead to violation of women's reproductive health rights. In Kenya abortion is prohibited unless, in the opinion of a trained health professional, there is need for emergency treatment, or the mother's life is in danger.
