Ipas, an international organisation that champions the reproductive health and rights of women has called on the federal government to consider a review of the restrictive laws on Abortion, saying that the law is costing women their lives in large number in the country.

The interim country’s Director of Ipas, Mr Lucky Palmer stated this on Thursday in Owerri, Imo State, during a training workshop organised by the organisation for journalists in Anambra and Abia States.

Palmer whose paper; abortion and the law was presented by Barr Doris Ikpeze, a policy adviser With the organisation said there was need to review the laws surrounding abortion in , as its restrictive nature has pushed many women to indulge in unsafe abortion, which has often cost them their lives.

Palmer said, “Access to abortion is particularly important for women and girls who are victims of sexual violence, rape and incest.

“There is a need for review of the restrictive abortion laws due to the human rights implications of unsafe abortion.”

He urged journalists to push for the domestication of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) act of 2015 in Abia State while commending Anambra for the domestication of the law.

He, however, noted that the act was not fully operational in Anambra State. She wondered the country will continue to sign international and regional treaties that it would not keep.

“Lack of political will on the part of the government will only continue to send our women to their early graves in large number, despite being signatories to so many international and regional treaties that promote women reproductive health and rights such as the African Union protocol on rights of women in Africa.”

Coronavirus: More anxiety as woman with no symptoms infects five relatives 20200222 150234

A Chinese woman from Wuhan has infected her five relatives living in Anyang with Coronavirus.

Chinese scientists reported on Friday that the 20-year-old never showed signs of infection.

Reuters reports that a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, evidenced that the virus can be spread asymptomatically.

The case also suggests that Coronavirus may be hard to stop.

In the publication, Dr. Meiyun Wang of the People’s Hospital of Zhengzhou University and colleagues narrated the woman’s case.

They noted that when the relatives fell ill, doctors isolated the visiting woman and tested her for Coronavirus. Although she tested negative initially, a follow-up test was positive.

Shockingly, even when all five family members developed COVID-19 pneumonia, the young woman still had not developed any symptoms one month later.

“Scientists have been asking if you can have this infection and not be ill? The answer is apparently, yes,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Over 75,567 cases of the virus, which had spread to 26 countries, has been reported including 2,239 deaths.

Ebeneezer, a medical doctor and a herbal practitioner at the Amuzu Hospital has instructed men to have sex at least 21 times a month to avoid prostate cancer.

She pointed out the need to have steady and frequent sex to avoid prostate cancer.

In a twitter video that has since gone viral online, the Doctor was seen advising men to have sex at least 21 times a month in order to check against prostate cancer.

She said her advise is as a result of research findings conducted  at Harvard University which was published in a journal called the European Urology.

The research found that men who have frequent sex, do not have the chance to suffer prostate cancer hence others should follow in the same act, she added.

“We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer.

This large prospective study provides the strongest evidence to date of a beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer,” the researchers said.
