Malawi Can Serve As Role Model In Africa For Evidence-Based Efforts To Improve Abortion Access, Advocates Say

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Malawi a model for Africa in liberalizing abortion, activists say
“Malawi’s use of evidence-based research to build support for a more liberal stance on abortion can make it a role model for Africa, campaigners said, following publication of a bill to liberalize the country’s 164-year-old abortion law. Abortion is a crime punishable by up to 14 years in jail in Malawi, unless it is required to save a woman’s life…” (Migiro, 7/30).
