It was recently revealed by the Minister of National Security, the Hon. Wayne Munroe that an eleven year old girl was given a pill induced abortion after being impregnated by her mother’s boyfriend. This revelation reignited the national conversation about abortion in the country.
Gynecologic Oncologist Dr. Darron Halliday spoke to ZNS News about the need to pregnancy terminations and the dangers of abortion pills. He said, “sometimes you may have a pregnancy that is not inside the uterus, for example, you may have an ectopic pregnancy. So instead of the pregnancy being inside the uterus, it would be in the fallopian tube and you’re taking a pill to to empty the uterus or doing a procedure blindly to empty the uterus where the pregnancy is not in that location. As that pregnancy progresses the tube cab rupture and that’s potentially a life threatening condition.”
Halliday advises against using the pill as a contraceptive measure. He says it can hinder a woman from one day having children.
