Q2 COMPREHENSION (20MKS)
Read the passage below and then answer the questions that follow
Ever wondered what the difference between abortion and murder is? Or should we ask what the two have in common? Both involve cutting life short. In the case of abortion, it happens to be the equally precious life of unborn baby that is ended.

In Kenya, abortion is illegal except when the life of the pregnant woman is in danger. Violating this carries the severe penalty of between 14 years and life imprisonment. The truth of the matter, though, is that many illegal abortions are still taking place. How else can we explain the presence of the foetuses in polythene papers dumped in city streets?

Many such abortions are unsafe. They are done using all manner of gruesome paraphernalia: wires, knitting needles, sticks, herbs, chemicals, detergents and drugs. Many people performing them lack the necessary skills and training. The environment in which they are done are usually unsafe and do not meet minimum hygienic or health standards.

This sorry situation has led some to clamour for the legalization of abortion. They argue that as things stand, it is adolescents and poor women who are forced to seek the services of the quacks. The financially - endowed counterparts visit private clinics of qualified doctors for the same services. They therefore do not suffer the consequences of a botched abortion; infertility, excessive bleeding, perforated internal organs such as the bladder and intestines and, worst of all, death. The feeling is that legalization of abortion would make it safe for all women.

But what reason, other than the legal one, would make a woman want to terminate a throbbing life within her? Interruption of career and education, being too young to bring up a baby or being abandoned by the father of the baby are often cited. Another reason is that the pregnancy is as a result of rape or incest. Whatever the reason, the negative consequences of illegal abortion, safe or otherwise, far outweigh any benefits it is purported to have.
Apart from the physical effects of unsafe abortion already mentioned, there are physiological ones. They include headache, accelerated heart beat, dizziness, stomach upsets and disturbed sleep and concentration. Eating disorders resulting in excessive weight gain or loss sometimes occur.

At the psychological level, a woman who has carried out an abortion usually suffers from debilitating guilt.
She feels that she has gone against a mother’s natural tendancy. As a result of low-esteem, she feels worthless and undeserving of even getting another baby.

Depression may also set in, the victim may feel very sad and cry for a long spell. She may lose interest in life and want to commit suicide.

A mental illness called phychosis cannot also be ruled out. The sufferer exhibits very uncharacteristic behaviour and is not able to distinguish reality from fantasy.

There is also stigma at the social level. Not many people would proudly want to associate with one who has induced illegal abortion. A man seeking a marriage partner is likely to give such a woman a wide berth.

In sum, though illegal abortion may appear to solve the immediate problem of the one seeking it, it creates life-long complications.
