I guess you don't have to be a Trump supporter to operate from your brainstem instead of your brain.

Somehow I doubt our anti-choice crowd will shut down these filthy church birth locations.
They'll just overlook these dead babies ... yes babies not fetuses.

This article mentions God 14 times, so how could all these babies die?

This is so far away.
Should the western press just hush up?

Is it wrong, and not respecting diversity, that they report it and that we are saddened by this?

I don't understand how you feel this has something to do with being a Trump supporter? It seems as though these women are being brain washed into believing that going to the church will cleanse them in some way and it will all work out and be ok. And why is it up to us, our country to be responsible for shutting these church birth locations down?

1. There are no references in the article to any dead babies, just dead moms.

2. "But Dr Edu argues that the practice will die out with a change in the law and the building of new health centres in every community." My question to Dr. Edu would be -- without these health centres, where should these women go to birth their babies NOW?

3. "[A] woman’s chance of dying from pregnancy and childbirth in Nigeria is 1 in 13. Although many of these deaths are preventable, the coverage and quality of health care services in Nigeria continue to fail women and children. Presently, less than 20 per cent of health facilities offer emergency obstetric care and only 35 per cent of deliveries are attended by skilled birth attendants." http://www.unicef.org/nigeria/children_1926.html

If adequate health care does not exist for pregnant women, I am not sure why these women would be criticized for choosing to be attended by women who at least have experience assisting women in childbirth, albeit under less than ideal circumstances.

It sounds remarkably similar to the home birth movement here in the US. Including the deaths.
