Kenya hospital imprisons new moms

1 post in this topic

Maimouna Awuor was an impoverished mother of four when she was to give birth to her fifth in October 2010. Like many who live in Nairobi's slums, Awuor performs odd jobs in the hopes of earning enough money to feed her kids that day. Awuor, who is named in the lawsuit, says she had saved $12 and hoped to go to a lower-cost clinic but was turned away and sent to Pumwani. After giving birth, she couldn't pay the $60 bill, and was held with what she believes was about 60 other women and their infants.

Kenya hospital imprisons new moms who can't pay medical bills

I don't want to seem heartless here but if you have 4 kids you can't take care of why have another one. Still don't think they should be imprisoning these women because they can't pay their bill.
