We can’t be in denial about miscarriages, abortions: Juggan Kazim
Juggan Kazim is not one to shy away from public eye. Recently, actress-turned-host appeared on ‘Munibnawaz’ show and shared harrowing details about her two miscarriages. On being questioned about what keeps her going, ‘Khamosh Raho’ actress referred to her children. She said, “Our kids and our spouses keep us going. Fact that no matter how bad it gets, you know it’s going to be okay.”
During podcast, Kazim opened up about her two miscarriages and challenging pregnancy. She said, “I was pregnant with Noor and I already had a horrible miscarriage which was quite bloody and it was my fourth month.” Kazim then quickly switched topic and apologised for “graphic details,” but also urged people to recognise miscarriages and medically necessary abortions. “I’m sorry this is a bit graphic, but we need to acknowledge that miscarriages also happen and sometimes you have to abort perfect child because maybe head wasn’t developed,” she expressed.
‘Saiqa’ actress also disclosed that she just recently met with woman who had to ‘induce labour’ as her child was not developing. Kazim stated, “I just came back from dealing with such a case, this women’s doctor had to induce labour because child was like a parasite and had not developed properly. So, these things happen in life, Munib.” “Everything is interconnected and whether people want to accept this or not is in their hands. I saw violence my whole life, in school, college, than university and chose person who was an extension of worst of my father.”
