A 2nd year Maseno University student lost her baby after the school nurses failed to attend to her.It is reported that when she went into labour ,the poor student rushed to the institution’s dispensary only for the nurses on duty to refuse to help her under the pretext that the dispensary was not a maternity ward.
With no ambulance to take her to hospital, the student delivered all by herself with no professional help.It is so unfortunate that the nurses could allow something like this to happen which led to the baby’s death in the arms of the mother.
Another unfortunate thing is that no psychological counseling was offered to the lady and now she is back to class. Putting into consideration the fact that she choose to keep her baby rather than abort, then why did the nurses not attend to her.This begs the question, Is abortion more prefered over keeping a baby once a student gets pregnant?
Unlike Maseno University, Kenyatta University has a facility where female students with babies get support to raise their babies thanks to the university’s baby day care centre.
Barely a few weeks have passed since SONU chairman Babu Owino wrote a letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta asking him to ban all abortion clinics.In his letter, Babu asked the president to grant him permission to set ablaze the clinics.The letter followed an alleged attempted by a student of the Institution to terminate a pregnancy and almost lost her life while procuring the abortion in an unnamed city clinic.
