Lack of proper abortion facilities force women to run from pillar to post

Women seeking abortions in a remote village in India are turned away from the state-run health facilities due to a lack of infrastructure and are forced to approach private practitioners.

Last year, 24- year old Masahun Khatun was 5 months pregnant when she fell in the front yard of her house.  For the next three weeks Masahun and her husband, shuttled between government hospitals and private practioners, spending over Rs 40,000 on healthcare. However, Masahun did not survive. Her husband, a daily wage labourer, struggles to raise his four kids and eke out a living.

Another woman sold off her land to get an abortion.  Navita Devi reports from Fulvari village, Kishanganj district, Bihar
