Abortion must be legalised: Biti

By Tendai Kamhungira

Harare lawyer Tendai Biti has called on the government to legalise abortion, arguing hundreds of girls were dying attempting to illegally terminate pregnancies.

Biti said this yesterday while addressing people at a Harare hotel, where the Constitutional Court (Con-Court) was conferred with an award for outlawing child marriages after striking off Section 22 (1) of the Marriages Act.

Biti mounted that legal challenge.

The gold certificate award was handed to the Con-Court by the Women’s Comfort Corner Foundation (WCCF) leader Rita Mbatha, in conjunction with the International Alliance of Women (IAW).

Biti, who worked with Veritas in the legal challenge, said that women are still marginalised and are not being treated equally as their male counterparts.

“There are thousands and thousands of young girls in this country who are going through illegal abortions as I talk to you right now. So there are hundreds of girls that are dying because of illegal abortions. The law, the Termination of Pregnancy Act in Zimbabwe is terrible.

“Those with money, you just go to South Africa and you go to those clinics, it’s very cheap anyway, it’s State subsidised. For the rich and the middle class, abortion is one hour away but not for the majority of our young girls in this country and its endemic.

“When I did the child marriages case, I did major research on children and women in this country. One of the shocking things is that I discovered that in a province like Gokwe, by the time a girl is 19, she should have at least two children. The statistics are shocking on child births.

“If we have to be equal like we do in the (Loveness) Mudzuru case (the child marriages case), one of the things that we have to do is to democratise the right of access to abortion,” Biti said, alluding to the fact that he will bring the case before the courts soon to challenge the Termination of Pregnancy Act.

Biti’s call for the legalisation of abortion come after a similar call by the Zimbabwe Doctors for Human Rights (ZADHR).

The organisation said that women with unwanted pregnancies must be able to undergo safe abortions in a move that could save countless lives in a country which has been grappling with a high maternal death rate.

The Termination of Pregnancy Act of 1977 (Chapter 15:10) that bans abortion in the southern African nation must be immediately repealed, the doctors said.

“We therefore, call upon the government of Zimbabwe to repeal the Termination of Pregnancy Act and remove other barriers to accessing safe reproductive health services for women and allow women to take responsibility of their reproductive health,” the ZADHR said in a statement.

The organisation further said the repeal of this law is a huge opportunity to save countless lives from preventable deaths. Around one in 190 women in Zimbabwe die during or shortly after childbirth, the World Health Organisation noted.

One-third of these deaths are the result of complications from unsafe abortions, often carried out by untrained people in unhygienic and dangerous surroundings, according to observers.

The United Nations Commission on Human Rights prescribes that access to safe and affordable abortion facilities is part of the sexual and reproductive health rights of women.

The new Constitution of Zimbabwe in Section 76 guarantees access to sexual and reproductive health services and right to life (Section 48). Daily News

  • Pple commenting using God should also know that the same God doesn’t support contraceptives either. So if u use any family planning method you’re as guilty as the person who terminates her pregnancy. Zimbabweans we are hypocrites. Why do we pretend as if we don’t kno that some women are having unsafe backyard abortions? #DoubleStandards

    • “We”? You and who else? Speak for yourself

    • And God does not want people to have sex before they marry or out of wedlock. Contraceptives for family planning; there is no foetus formed yet. Abortion is terminating a developing human

    • Yourself included Mukwada. @Tinashe God doesn’t want but pple are having it anyway & some get raped even married pple get raped. I know what family planning is &and God doesn’t want it either. If you decide on his behalf to condone family planning please don’t use him to disqualify termination of pregnancy. Hakuna chivi chiri nani. And let’s not hide behind God when it suits our argument.

    • Tendai Tapi yu dont understand the biology of contraceptive. That pill prevents ur sper* from reaching the oval for fertilisation which leads to a foetus (life). so the pill doea not kill coz it acts before there is life

    • Tendai Tapi i agree with you…

    • Wilson my comment is not abt biology it’s about hypocrisy. Pple are saying abortion is unGodly and I’m just reminding them that the same God doesn’t want family planning either. If everyone is OK with family planning then let’s not quote God to dismiss termination of pregnancy (abortion)

        The closest the bible comes to condemning birth control is Genesis chapter 38, the account of Judah’s sons Er and Onan. Er married a woman named Tamar, but he was wicked and the Lord put him to death, leaving Tamar with no husband or children. Tamar was given in marriage to Er’s brother, Onan, in accordance with the law of levirate marriage in Deuteronomy 25:5-6. Onan did not want to split his inheritance with any child that he might produce on his brother’s behalf, so he practiced the oldest form of birth control, withdrawal. Genesis 38:10 says, “What he did was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so He put him to death also.”

Is that still the law today? No. I never compared abortion & contraceptives either. But was pointing out the hypocrisy in us Zimbabweans.

    • Tendai Tapi you might be a Mwazha or Johane Masowe member where commandments are given orally not from the Bibliography. Birth control is not evil but abortion is equal to murder when it comes to Bible beliefs.No verse that states that birth control is a sin.Stop misleading people of God.

    • God’s anger was directed not at the sexual act, but at Onan’s disobedience by refusing to impregnate his brother’s widow

    • Onan was not doing any family planning here. He was punnished because he was protesting agaiinst his brother.He spilled the sperm in protest

    • Very correct Sister Betina. This Tendai Tapi wants to put words in the mouth of the Lord. Masturbation cannot be birth control unless you just want to be pathetic..

    • Kkkk hayas tipeiwo ma verses aya ndikudziona hangu dzimuface idzo dzikuita misquote the bible hanzi kwanzi Berekanai muwande in this period of revelations shuwa ko Jesu zvaakauya to fulfill the laws wani

    • Nkosinam I’m literate I can read it &I don’t need to be given commandments orally, why mwazha or Johann masowe? Why not Catholic? Coz they also don’t believe in birth control. Anyway I wasn’t writing abt my beliefs here. Isn’t going against your God’s directive to berekanai muwande by using birth control a sin?

    • Double standards displayed here are on another level. You all saying that abortion is murder but that is not in the Bible. You are the one who’s qualifying it as such. And murder is in the old testament. Yet you disregard other things in the same Bible(old testament). A directive was given to berekanai muwande, where was it reversed &who reversed it? Yourselves?

    • Can we say we regalise theft because people are doing it in back yards?

    • You mean girls don’t know sex causes pregnancy? Don’t be so naive

    • Regan sorry but your reasoning is so flat. One of the most stupid reason I’ve encountered so far. Abortion is murder so should murder be legalised?

  • Biti, this will not in any way gain you political mileage, even if it will get you foreign funding.

  • Dai amai venyu vakatanga nemi vaBiti…kutaura nonsense dzakadaro

  • Tendai Biti :futseki wako

  • I thnk he is right concedering the situation the girl may be facing. Let’s say its rape case I think it is not wise to keep the child that will always remind the mother about the tragid

    • Easy, in Zimbabwe abortion maybe legally carried out in these situations
      1 when the pregnancy threatens the life of the woman carrying it
      2 when the pregnancy is as a result of what is known at law as “sex with an idiot” ie rape.

    • No . Prostitution in most cases.

    • If it’s rape the law decide for the victim. That is well catered for.

    • Girls have sex with boys or men, girls and boys needs education

    • Most girls are groomed and some are raped in most cases.

    • @Alka..my mind is not as dirty as yours. .. and you should also know that I am a father of a grown up daughter of whom I have always educated about the consequencies of premature sex. I am glad she has heeded and it is to her own benefit. Usati kana iwe uchirara nevana vanhu vose ndozvavanoita.

    • And rape must be treated as such because itori criminal offence and perpetrators must be put behind the bars for a very long time…kwete kutoita mutemo wokuti vana itai henyu nhumbu mozobvisa henyu.. thats sick. Dai kukatoiswa mutemo wakaomarara kuti mwana aita nhumbu asati awanikwa aiswe muchitorongo vese neamitisa wacho…

    • @ Collin I guess u are a Muslim, young girls are being raised on different situations, your children are lucky to have you to teach them but some doesn’t have that privilege however in Shona they say seka urema wafa it may come to your door step one day and you will remember Bitis words

    • Again it’s not young girls alone who are victims of unwanted pregnancy, even married women and single mothers . The contraceptives being used by the poor in Zimbabwe are not 100% effective. I once visited the new start centre where they do family planning and I saw more than 20 women pregnant but they had unexpired jadel imagine

    • Its not kuseka @Alfred. Tirikuti hatingaise mutemo unokurudzira kuti vana varase unhu. Ngatibatsirei vana sokubatsirwa kwatakaitwa isu. And for your own information I am a proud Catholic christian

    • @sir Alfred , mr Collins is doing his duty as a parent . He cant control the stage of adolescence but spoken word are a seed sown one day the seed will bring forth good fruits

      Raise a child in a way that will not depart from it when he/she grows .

      Harsh decisions can not be taken . time is needed for this matter to be looked on it . Pliz lets not imitate…….

    • true that

    • true that

    • If legalised , majority of youth is going to be sick (HIV ) , and Govt struggle to buy drugs.

  • I support legal safe abortion for girls under 16 yrs of age and any woman pregnant after a rape…I have seen very young pregnant girls around 12,13,14,15 in maternity wards in hospitals and honestly its a sorry heart breaking sight that pains and haunts any mature symphathetic person..Most of these pregnant young girls get lured and taken advantage of by older men or older boys for sex…I support abortion,most times i feel sorry seeing women struggling with kids failing to feed and clothe a child because of poverty and the child suffering…It seems some of us men are saying abortion is wrong ,a sin etc,but do we even take responsibility when we have unprotected sex and the woman gets pregnant??Most of us jump and deny the pregnancy or even to suppport the pregnant woman..What do we expect the women to do in such situations?The pain and humiliation of being impregnated and the guy denying responsibility or just getting dumped like that??What do u expect the young girls and women to do??Let women decide if they want the baby or not,why should we bully women and young girls into carrying unwanted ,unplanned babies most with run away fathers??Let women abort,i support abortion,Biti is very very very very CORRECT!

    • Thank you! You are one of the few honest and descent man pano. The rest can’t even put their arguments across but kungotukirira zvisina musoro. Inzwa kana language yacho being used. Shame!

    • Abortion its a crime dear no matter what may cause pregnancy, people you have to know the word of got and get saved from your sins,Jesus died for that ,if the case is about keeping the child please take it to the right place and surrender your Child there, even to child welfare, that what you are saying God will punish you together with your children and grand grand Children, l beg you please stop it.

    • Let women decide if they want to keep the child or not.Anyway ,Zimbabweans dont have the kindness and heart to adopt babies from a children’s home,we are just selfish and cold hearted by nature,we rather spend our riches on alcohol,cars and sex with different women than to ever think of adopting a child.Given such a mentality let women choose to abort.

  • That’s very stupid of him to say

  • akazviona kupi izvozvo

  • I think Mr Biti’s idea addresses the fruits of a situation not the roots. Let’s deal with why so many of the girls (who would later need to abort) are getting pregnant.

    • Becoz they are having unprotected sex, lets promote the use of condoms and other forms of birth control

    • All Mugabe issues. Selling the between the legs to put food on plate. Lets not sugar coat this. People dying because no medicine or even basic care in public hospitals and clinics . Loose morals in the youth .

    • Actually Biti is not supoorting abortion… but he is worried about the deaths caused by backyard abortions wrby we end up loosing both the mother and the baby…… whats your take?
      .

  • There are other alternatives that can be implemented BUT not legalizing abortion.In other countries there are secured known homes where a mother just leaves her new born baby on a receiving bay secretly and that baby is taken in that home and catered for awaiting adoption.Then in Namibia there is a queen who is receiving and looks after unwanted babies.Men advocate for abortion because they don’t know the traumatic undying effects that it causes on the mother

  • Again I will repeat this country hasn’t got learned people . We just heard on then 8pm news, truth is No. lots of stupid comments everyday. Legalizing abortion doesn’t mean it’s mandatory to abort . You don’t want it’s upto and you sisters . Thinking that you church or religion should rule over everyone’ life is barbaric. Stop thinking like you president . Wake up Zimbabwe

    • What is your reasoning behind giving people the right to deprive another one’s right to live?

    • This is not religious if u get pregnant it is your bad choice why should remove it.

  • sarah Mahoka

    You are spot on Biti legalise abortion,

  • its 1 of the women’s rights which women must fight for nekuti yekedero haisi kumira

  • Mr Biti is an intelligent man, I have always said that. But Mr Biti , abortion itself is a sin in the eyes of God . Why don’t you press onto the Government , have sufficient funds through Ministry of Health for a Half Way house . Let government assign lawyers to bring down these evil men to court, pay heavy penalty for the pregnancy . Let Government to allow free education to these abused woman at their Half Way House . Various courses to this Half Way house . A girl should be kept at the Half Way house till she gives birth. Let Government assign free treatment . Doctors must be assigned to visit them from time to time . Heavy penalty funds should be able to help them thru and must be assigned to right department , I bet using the Half Way House coding . I appeal to my children ; brothers and sisters ; here on such debates, learn not to attack, ability to manage your emotions and remain calm to suggestions will improve changes . Stay pleased . God bless you .

    • U should marry this biti u are always crazy about.abortion is there for exceptional cases like rape and incest in our law and administered by professional medical personnel not for loose morals where biti is driving his point. Let’s invest in moral upbringing and empowering the girl child than give them options for their sins.if not next thing we will be advocating for condoms in our schools.

  • Nothing like that in zim..

  • YOU ARE VERY STUPID TENDAI BITI to say the least.Not my vote again.

  • Abortion is murder. Y get pregnant in the first place of u are not ready. Young girls

  • I think abortion is a sin and not a crime.. It only becomes a crime when the state chooses to enforce it. A sin does not automatically becomes a crime, it depends on attitude of a state. A lie is a sin but the majority of states do not enforce it, it remains a sin and not a crime

    • A sin is not a crime. But in our jurisdiction this sin of abortion is a crime but other jurisdictions don’t recognise it as such. There fore it depends with jurisdiction

  • Ndokushaya zvokiita ikokoko

  • Its simple if you are not ready for a baby don’t sleep around

  • Abortion is a sin Mr Biti….

  • rather legalise abortion to be done safely in safer places than to lose lives everyday .i thnk Biti is right ..yes ppl can be taught of safe sex but legalise abortion

  • Yea Biti wahorashika manje..thts not a solution baba let’s go to the root cause

  • I am seeing a lot of different views but thank God he has raised that concern. We have a lot of organisations in Zim and seem to be silent about it. Views and opinions can change but at least a topic has been raised. We need to obey God and save lives.

  • Kkkkkkk unoona sometimes kuda mari kunoita kuti ugume wave kuita zvinhu zvekuti chero newe unoona zvisina kukodzera.Two wrongs will make one right Biti,and u know that.

    Reading the comments l get people are opposed to Abortion being legalised because it’s going against “god” fair enough.. Quick question albeit is in the event of a rape would you still advocate that the victim keeps the child. Reason l ask is who draws the line in the sand for said “god”.

    No matter how many times you scream it is a sin, the thing is, its happening. Saka zvoitwa sei. Dene mapindura ipapo. Stealing bond paper from work is no better/worse than murder. So lets not be too high and mighty. I never saw anyone offering to take care of the babies that are kept? So I think what he is saying is since it is happening (whether you like it or not), why not give a safe and legal option for it to be done so that the girls are not at risk. Yes these girls ideally should not open their legs but they are and not all are willing parties. So would abortion on a rape victim not be murder? What of the men that are impregnating, nothing is said about them. Its is traumatic either way for the girl…first she has been dumped, second she is torn by the emotions of guilt and morality whether to abort or not, she has already sinned by having sex, next even if she keeps the baby she may dump the baby then guilt ridden for the rest of her life, if she keeps the baby she may resort to prostitution/crime to take care of the baby. Panekungoti no to legal abortion, follow it up with a solution.

  • To use Christianity as an argument against abortion is to be in denial of colonisation and colonised minds

  • If you allow abortion it means ngochani munyika muchadzibvumira

  • the fact that Tendai Biti is a lawyer does not mean He speaks Right. He is right in His lawyer Jargon but serious, what is better to save your souls than saving flesh? If you save flesh and allow killing of souls only those that support killing of souls are “wicked”. Biti you need spiritual Operation your spiritual sense are dead. Life is not in flesh. let the flesh die. rather tach dangers of Sexs..thanks .**Collin Samata Kareza.**

  • Women & girls are the victims here, why shouldn’t they choose ? Men impregnate girls/women and refuse pregnancy, women get raped & are forced to carry that baby , why? Thank u Mr Biti

  • Believe

    Abortion can be ligalised for those who belong to the father of lies Satan. However, it can not be ligalised because of God’s unmerited favour torwards all humanity. Since we are saved by Grace through faith in Christ Jesus, it is impossible to ligalise evil acts. Sorry Biti killing is against God’s law which overrides human law.

  • Far much better bcoz criminal abortions are happening. Wat saves a known living woman comes first. Reality needs to be faced. About sin haaaa is it the only sin on earth? God will deal with individuals, dont try to think for God, He knows situations around the scene.

  • If u r concerned a lot, imi varume regai kunhumburisa ikwachoka. Or roorai vese vamunonhumburisa to avoid making young girls abort
