Liberals claim there is a “War on Women” in America. But when women in a Zimbabwe Hospital are charged $5 (£3.30) every time they scream during childbirth causes one contrast and compare what a “war on women” really looks like.
The practice was cataloged in an extensive new report from Transparency International, an anti-corruption organization. The hospital screaming fee was allegedly a charge for “raising a false alarm” but patients have claimed it is intended to make money out of suffering mothers-to-be.
This fee accompanies a flat $50 delivery cost that all Zimbabwean hospitals charge. Meaning that in one of Africa’s poorest countries, where average annual income per head is around $150, a mother who uttering only a few cries of distress might owe half her annual income as a result of giving birth.
