A woman has an abortion by herself with a screwdriver

VietNamNet Bridge – The Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Hospital in the central province of Quang Binh has rescued a 29-year-old woman from death after the woman poked a screwdriver into her vagina for abortion.

The woman, from Bo Trach district of Quang Binh province, was hospitalized on July 28 in critical conditions, with blood bleeding from her vagina.

Doctors said that her womb was punctured. They cut of one half of the womb and transfused six blood units to save the woman. This is the first case of this kind to be treated at the hospital.

The woman is recovering and still under doctors watch. As she lost a lot of blood, many doctors donated their blood to rescue her.

According to the patient’s family, Q has two children. Her family is very poor so when she knew that she was three-months pregnant, the woman used a screwdriver to poke into her vagina in a bid to have an abortion. The woman was afraid that she could not afford to raise the third child.
