New Anas Exposé: Doctor ‘rapes’ 52 women while performing abortions
By Crystal Svanikier
Yes, you read right.
I first came across this story on the the myjoyonline news site and to say I was shocked is an understatement. The entire story stinks from beginning to end. The doctor (who is now in Police custody) worked at a clinic in Tema (apparently, the name of the clinic begins with a ‘U’… anyone have a clue which clinic this is??) and would routinely perform abortions for women. As part of the procedure, he’d claim that it wouldn’t work unless they had an erect penis inside them (…. this is as stupid as the legendary, “Just the tip” excuse) and would proceed to have sex with them (unprotected, I might add).
Ghana’s only investigative journalist, Anas (how in the world did he hear about this!!??) placed hidden cameras in the surgery under the guise of a cleaner and medical assistant… (which journalist do you know could work as a medical assistant!? Again, does *anyone* know the name of this so-called clinic!?). Needless to say, Anas filmed the doctor having sex with 52 different women – some who are supposed to be known socialites (now I’m curious!)
And do you want to know why I’m curious? I’m curious to know which woman would believe a doctor that told her the only way to successfully get rid of the unwanted result of unprotected sex was to perform an abortion (which we know works) and have unprotected sex with him. I just find the whole thing mind blowing. 52 women!
I’m just shocked. I won’t even go into how disturbed I feel that Anas filmed these women without their consent, while they were undergoing (what is often) a very traumatic experience (How dare he?). In fact, I would like to know why he’s not being called to account for that. Fair enough the doctor duped the women, but that does NOT give Anas the right to film (not one, but fifty-two) women having an abortion and being abused.
I find it disturbing that the article on myjoyonline.com implies that the journalists there have seen this video and are calling it a “must-watch” video. I am absolutely horrified.
What are your thoughts?
