Women; as described by the people of the old, are special for many reasons. According to the Old times, Women are the most sensitive, caring and maternal people in the world. They are also are more sympathetic towards people and things, compared to the men.
In the latest State of World Population 2022 report, released by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency, has made a very interesting revelation about our women.
According to the UNFPA, nearly a quarter of all women in the world, are not able to say no to sex; this means, one out of every four women cannot resist it.
The UNFPA stated that, nearly half of the world's pregnancies, (totaling about 121 million), each year, are unintended, and that "For the women and girls affected, the most life-altering reproductive choice—whether or not to become pregnant—is no choice at all".
The Report further revealed that, “Seeing the Unseen: The case for action in the neglected crisis of unintended pregnancy, warns that this human rights crisis has profound consequences for societies, women and girls and global health".
It added that, “Over 60 per cent of unintended pregnancies end in abortion and an estimated 45 per cent of all abortions are unsafe, causing 5 – 13 per cent of all maternal deaths, thereby having a major impact on the world’s ability to reach the Sustainable Development Goal”.
According to the Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund, Dr. Natalia Kanem, "For the women affected, the most life-altering reproductive choice—whether or not to become pregnant—is no choice at all. By putting the power to make this most fundamental decision squarely in the hands of women and girls, societies can ensure that motherhood is an aspiration and not an inevitability”.
He added that, “This report is a wake-up call. The staggering number of unintended pregnancies represents a global failure ,to uphold women and girls’ basic human rights”.
