Abandoned, abused, and exploited in a place of care. After sporadic verbal attacks by politicians and more violent ones by self-styled vigilantes, Carte Blanche re-examines what the Constitution and health laws say about emergency and maternal care for foreigners in local hospitals. Despite humane policies, xenophobia has found a new target and it's affecting the most vulnerable: children and expectant mothers. It’s violating the joy of foreign-born women bringing new life into the world through an often-cruel reception and demands for payment. This is the ugly scourge of medical xenophobia and obstetric violence in SA hospitals.
