Media personality, Christiana Sweety Aborchie, has said that women do not need men to give birth.

According to her, women who have the perception that they cannot have children without the help of a man become limited in their ability to explore life.

She said this on Prime Morning during a discussion about the topic, ‘Gender Bias Perception: Society’s Take on the Woman.’

“I still think a woman decides what she wants to do with her life and how she wants to raise her child. If I decide to go get some artificial insemination as a single woman and have a kid, I can do that. I think it’s limiting to think that I need to have a man to have a child. You don’t need a man to have a child,” she said to Asieduwaa Akumia.

She attributed her assertion to the fact that the world has advanced technologically, as there is easy access to information and other initiatives through the internet.

Sweety Aborchie further indicated that it is not compulsory for women to respect men, admitting that it is reciprocal.

She asserted that, “respect is not a gender thing. Women must not respect men at all costs. Respect is earned.”

She noted that men who do things in the right manner gain the level of submission expected of their wives.

To men who demand respect from women, she said, “They don’t know enough.”

Meanwhile, Sweety Aborchie has urged divorced wives to examine themselves to know the reason behind the divorce, as they may be at fault.
