Will Women in #India Ever Have #ReproductiveRights on Their Own Body?
33 year old Kanu has given birth to 15 children, 14 girls and 1 boy. But her husband, Ramsinh Sangod, a farmer, refuses to stop, for he wants another son.
His wife wants him to let her to undergo hysterectomy.“I told my husband that we must consider it the God’s will to give us one son. We must now put an end to this quest for another son. I wish to undergo hysterectomy as I know my body is weak and I cannot afford to have another pregnancy,” Kanu said.
But Ramsinh insists that after the birth of another girl it is even more important to give it “one last try”.
