The Nairobi women rep. stood her grounds that she would fight to see that Prisca Akumu got justice after Nation highlighted her plight.

Esther Passaris, the women representative for Nairobi County, has called upon women to be allowed an abortion at their own will.

Passaris lamented how women in the slums were opting for abortion, leading to deaths that could not be avoided, in addition to alarming abandonment of infants.

"They should not give birth to children to suffer. They should not have children they cannot take care of," insisted Passaris.

The county women rep gave her address during the 9th Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Conference at KICC, and which has been ongoing since February 10, 2020.

The Nairobi women rep. stood her grounds that she would fight to see that Prisca Akumu got justice after Nation highlighted her plight.

Ms. Akumu, a disabled woman, got sterilized without her will, an action that Ms. Passaris termed as a violation of reproductive rights for the victim.

The fallopian tubes for one Ms. Akumu got tied by medics in 2007, after having undergone three births via Caesarian Section, adding that she was physically disabled.
