Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris’ daughter was put on birth control pills when she was 16.

Passaris made the revelation today during an interview saying this was to prevent her daughter from having unwanted pregnancies hence procuring abortion.

“Her friends were already having sex, I had it at a later age, my mother didn’t know about it and at the end of the day, I felt that it was important to take my daughter to a gynae,” Passaris.

“Parents have got to be realistic, by putting my daughter on birth control, I made sure that abortion does not become the birth control,” she remarked.

Last week, the High Court ruled that abortion remains illegal in Kenya and will only be permissible when the life of the mother is at risk as a result of pregnancy.

However, the court also ruled that safe abortion which is procured within the confines of the law must be done by permitted medical health practitioners.
