Members of the National Assembly are today expected to debate on the termination of pregnancy bill.

The bill has resurfaced barely two months after the National Assembly rejected it.

According to the order paper, the bill will be tabled in Parliament through a private motion.

The bill, pushed by activists since 2015, aimed to expand legal abortion from cases where the mother’s life is at risk to include rape, incest, fetal deformity, and threats to health. 

The current law criminalizes abortion, unless the mother’s life is in danger, with offenders facing up to 14 years in jail.
