Изследване за и против въвеждането на медикаментозен аборт в България

There are no translations available.

През ноември 2010 г. БАСП проведе анкета сред водещите акушер-гинеколози в България с цел да замери отношението им към медикаментозния аборт. Идеята е, че употребата на медикаменти намалява силно психологическия стрес при жената от извършването на хирургическа интервенция, но също така биха могли да бъдат наблюдавани и някои нежелани реакции.

Бяха анкетирани 144 АГ специалисти и проведени 10 дълбочинни интервюта. Резултатите от анкетите сочат, че повечето от анкетираните имат сравнително добра информация за начина на действие, положителните и отрицателните страни при употребата на медикаментозен аборт - 53,5%. При 32,6% АГ специалистите следят редовно научни публикации по въпроса и смятат, че са напълно запознати с въпроса. Откъслечна информация имат 8,3% от анкетираните, а никаква информация - едва 5,6%.

На въпрос биха ли използвали медикаментозен аборт в тяхната практика, голяма част от анкетираните биха го предпочели. Основните причини за това са, че този метод е щадящ за жената, има по-нисък риск от последващ стерилитет и това, че може да бъде ползван в ранен етап от бременността. Заедно с това обаче, се посочват и някои негативни страни при ползването на медикаментозен аборт (при 52 АГ специалисти или малко над 36%) като това, че липсва достатъчна медицинска практика у нас, не са наясно със страничните ефекти и дори със самата методология при извършването на медикаментозен аборт.

Като цяло АГ специалистите са за въвеждането на медикаментозен аборт в България (101 от анкетираните), а 12 са против и 31 се колебаят. Различните срезове от анкетата показват, че тези, които имат по-малко информация се колебаят дали е необходимо въвеждането на медикаментозен аборт, но тези, които следят редовно научни публикации са категорично за.

Romeo and Juliet from Kosharnik district

Montana, September 12, 2019

The Shakespeare and Servantes tour around the Roma neighborhoods of Bulgaria went to the Kosharnik district of Montana. Talented and enthusiastic local children, selected by the Roma actress Natalia Tzekova presented fragments of the drama “Romeo and Juliet” from a newer angle and with adequate health messages. The aim of the social theatre is with the means of art to inform the public in a comprehensible manner about the harm of early marriages and early school drop outs, the benefits of contraception, the importance of prevention of sexually transmitted infections. The messages target young people as well as their parents, some of which joined the scenes to demonstrate their support for what their children are saying. With his monologue about the Roma Don Quixote Valeri Lekov, also part of the production team, explained some of the community specificities. Between the sketches there were “real life” scenes – a woman from the community visits a doctor who explains the benefits of contraception and debunks some “fake news” about contraceptive methods – all this with a lot of humour and highly appreciated by the audience.
