Dubai, well known for its beauty, tourism and hospitality sadly does not welcome right to abortion as a reproductive right of women.
Women living in Dubai as its citizens or an expat realize the stringent abortion laws when an unwanted pregnancy happens with them or their acquaintances.
Getting pregnant can be controlled but what when it is not in the woman’s hand? What if the woman is already a mother of more children than she can raise due to her social or economic conditions? What if a woman gets pregnant out of her marriage?
What if the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest? Even marital rapes exist and what is a woman’s option if she chooses not to become a mother at that particular time?
What to do in events of contraceptive failures? What if an unmarried girl gets pregnant and does not want to welcome the child at this point?
If you are a woman in Dubai or any other part of the UAE and finds any of the aforementioned questions as a common touchpoint with your problem, then you are at the right place.
This post intends to educate women regarding healthy and safe options when they choose to opt-out of an unwanted pregnancy.
