INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
-DR. ANTONIO PERALTA SÁNCHEZ
MEXICO

SWEET since he woke up he had a feeling that this day would be very different.

The night passed with spasms and feelings of fear and anxiety; In fact, there were only a few hours that he managed to keep his eyes closed, and always with that headache that from being so much, it seems as if it were part of his life. Very early he arrived at the woman’s hospital, they told him to sit down that as soon as a doctor was vacated they would notify him.

While trying to settle into a sad bench like her life, Dulce lets her memories go through a dirty window that allows her to see the blue of the sky of a new day full of light in a month of March. Almost 6 months have passed since his Paco left for the United States, and it was only once that he called him to tell him that it was very difficult to go to the other side, that he had faith in him, that as soon as he started working he would send him money, and more now that she knew she was pregnant. Without realizing it, Dulce begins to cry because she is afraid that she will not see her Paco again – there is so much talk about the disappeared.

The doctor at the health center told her that her delivery would be until the month of May, but she feels that something is not right, that something serious is happening to her. And while the hours go by on that old bench, he realizes that things are moving for him, that a strong dizziness invades his brain, and suddenly he feels that he is floating like an astronaut on the moon.

Dulce was hospitalized convulsing; Today, which is International Women’s Day, he is in critical condition due to a complication called Eclampsia, his baby is seriously ill in an incubator, and Paco is still looking for a way to get to the promised land.

Every year in our country (Mexico) about a thousand women die during pregnancy, or after childbirth, becoming a disgrace for medical knowledge, and an affront for the leaders of health policies, since 80% of these deaths could be prevented; Maternal death is a worthy tracer of the effectiveness of government health actions in a country, because it faithfully portrays inequity and lack of respect for human rights.

It would seem that by dint of seeing and hearing daily about the thousands of deaths that have accumulated due to that war that nobody understands and that nobody wants, we have ceased to be amazed by only about a thousand women who died pregnant during a year in all the Mexican Republic; However, a mother who dies is more than the cessation of vital functions; it is the rupture of a family nucleus because our families live at the rhythm of a mother, it is the generation of more than 3,000 orphans each year, with the predictable consequences of abandonment and neglect.

MARCH 8, 2019 INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY.

– For those pregnant women who wait, wait, for prompt and quality care that they were told that their popular insurance would offer.
– For pregnant teenagers, who, flustered, seek help amid the glances that reproach, scold and point.
– For women who even in this 21st century are victims of violence by those who swore to be partners in a love story of a couple.
– For the women who help in the houses as domestic workers, and who now, thanks to the film “ROMA”, want to stop being invisible because they deserve it, because it is an unfinished story and one day they deserve rewards.

There are many pending tasks to be able to raise one’s face without shame, on this women’s day, a lot of inequity and many words that slip accommodated in the scripts of politicians and leaders, who believe that celebrating a day is resolved the confused and violent world against women.

When we achieve equal opportunities, when discrimination is just a memory, when pregnant women have quality and warmth in their care, when indigenous women are respected in their uses and customs at the time of giving birth, when sexual abuse Minors are punished always and without exception, when the woman can dress with the carelessness she wants and not for that reason be a victim of harassment, when she can love who she wants and when she wants, only then can we say that her day is the day of all human beings.
