Authorities in Kenya arrested an abortionist this week after he allegedly killed a woman and her unborn baby in a botched abortion.
Citizen TV reports the 65-year-old abortionist ran a privately licensed abortion facility in Sagana, Kenya. According to Kirinyaga County police, the abortionist recently performed an abortion on a 20-year-old woman, but something went wrong and the young mother died along with her unborn baby.
Police said when they arrived to arrest the abortionist, they first had to rescue him from an angry mob.
Here’s more from the local news:
According to Mwea West OCPD Joseph Matiku, police had a difficult time trying to save the accused from irate residents who threatened to lynch him.
They accused him of causing the death of another person, a case they say is in court.
Sagana residents have also faulted county public health officers for allowing the doctor to operate a clinic despite reports that he conducts back-door abortions.
The retired doctor is being held at Sagana Police Station awaiting to be arraigned in court.
Abortions are legal in certain circumstances in Kenya.
Often abortion activists politicize these tragedies to push for more permissive abortion laws. They claim abortions will be safer if they are legal and easily accessible. But this could not be further from the truth. Legalizing abortion does not protect lives. It is the government-sanctioned killing of unborn babies, and it allows back alley abortionists to practice openly.
Countries where abortion is legal have witnessed this destruction many times, one of the most recent being with American abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who now is in jail for murder.

Abortion chain Marie Stopes International, which works in Kenya, also has an egregious reputation. A report by the British Care Quality Commission found that Marie Stopes botched nearly 400 abortions in a two-month period in 2017. In 2016, inspectors found such horrible conditions that the British government temporarily shut down some of the abortion chain’s operations.
Late last year, parents and community leaders in Kitui, Kenya also said Marie Stopes workers came into their children’s school and implanted long-lasting contraceptive devices into girls as young as 14 without their parents’ knowledge or consent.
