Police have arrested an abortion practitioner operating in the African nation of Ghana who reportedly raped or sexually abused potentially thousands of women on whom he did abortions, claiming he needed to have sex with them to “open their birth canals.”

“For him, there was always a price to pay for an abortion. Beyond his fee of between GH¢50 and GH¢100 that is taken before the operation, there is for the beautiful clients an extra charge; Sex in the middle of an abortion,” a local media web site indicated.

According to local media, Dr. Joshua Drah has denied the charges but was reportedly surprised when investigators played for him a video of his actions in his medical clinic. Drah runs the Universal Mission Clinic at Madina in Accra.

Lead investigator in the compilation of the documentary, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, told a Ghanan news web site, “The videos that we got were simply unbelievable. It was a peek into the activities of a man who has for over a decade demeaned womanhood, flouted laws of the land and supervised numerous abortions – some of which have gone horribly wrong leading to complications and death of clients in extreme cases.”

The video includes the following exchange as to why Drah would have sex with his abortion patients.

Doctor: It’s been a long time since you did the ‘thing’
Patient: What did you say?
Doctor: You did the ‘thing’ a long time ago.
Patient: You said I did what?
Doctor: You haven’t had sex in a long while.
Patient: Yeah!
Doctor: Eii! Your ‘thing’ is cute. If you won’t mind let’s have sex to open you up.
Patient: You said?
Doctor: I said if you won’t mind let’s have sex so that it will open you up.
Doctor: Or you don’t like that. Let me check and see. I’m doing this but the thing is rather closing up, why? Mm!
Patient: I don’t know.
Doctor: I’m inserting my fingers in there but it is still closing up why?
Patient: I don’t know.
Doctor: I have to do the ‘thing’ to open it up and you are saying no. I’ll just have to put it in there one, two, three that’s it, and then it will open up.
Patient: Ok!
Doctor: should I put it inside? Are you sure? Then come forward so I will put it inside. When I put it in there ‘one, two, three’ then that is it, it will be ok.
After Bout
Doctor: Push back.
Patient: She pushes back
Doctor: Good!
Patient: She makes small screams when the doctor starts the procedure

Another web site from Ghana talks about the rapes and sexual abuse perpetrated by Drah.

When we go to hospitals, we see doctors always working with assistants, but not our man Drah. An expert that he is, Drah is able to single handedly operate as many clients as troop to his outfit. Hard core video evidence on Drah’s activities shows that his assistants are only good for cleaning out whatever blood is left on the operating bench or which might have dripped on the floor- after an operation.

That is barely the only piece of the abortion ‘action’ that his assistants can see. Theirs is to dispose of the aborted fetuses. The mode of disposal is simple, add lots of water to the fetal material and flush the mixture down the clinic manhole. Only God knows how many fetuses have ended up there.

The reason why our ‘dr’ works without any assistants is quite simple: their presence would not allow him to do what he does best in the middle of an operation- our videos show how this ‘doctor’ has paused in the middle of several operations to loosen his belt and have sex with the very clients he is operating on whiles the clients lay on the operating bench groaning.



Drah has also been accused of practicing medicine with an expired medical license.
