Poll: A Wo­man’s Right to Choose

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

CLOSE TO 50 per cent of Ja­maicans do not be­lieve that the abor­tion laws should be changed for the rea­son that many women do not have the eco­nomic means to pay for the pro­ce­dure to be done pri­vately in the is­land or abroad.

How­ever, nearly a sim­i­lar pro­por­tion of peo­ple think that the abor­tion law should be changed be­cause at present, women ex­pe­ri­ence med­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions aris­ing from an in­com­plete abor­tion or poor af­ter­care.

These are find­ings of an all-is­land poll ti­tled ‘A Wo­man’s Right to Choose’, which was con­ducted by Johnson Sur­vey Lim­ited from April 27-29 with 1,000 Ja­maican males and fe­males, aged 15 to 49 par­tic­i­pa­tion.
