Saying it as it is

Sunday, August 13 2017

THE EDITOR: It was heartening to read the news item entitled “Contraception not just woman’s job” in your July 28, issue.

In speaking to your reporter Carol Matroo on July 27, at the San Juan Health Centre, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh spoke some truths about women’s role in the family that were encouraging to read.

His speech demonstrated a knowledge of women’s contribution in the home, and I particularly liked his remark: “As a member of parliament I am so disappointed with the way men abdicate their responsibility to their women folk, their children and their families.” His statement here is so reflective of what we are seeing in our communities and it is a reality that is too prevalent and not at all good for solid family foundations.

The thrust of his speech was quite favourable of women’s realities and it was good that he emphasised that contraception cannot be a woman’s responsibility alone. She is not a “lone ranger” in a relationship, and the word “relationship” itself conveys mutuality.

It was good that you carried this news item.
