A woman has reportedly died following her failure to go for a Cesarean Section (CS) because her pastor preached that its a sin.
This was made known in a post by a Facebook user by name Yaw Asamoah Akowuah.
According to him, the CS became necessary after medical officers discovered that the baby was heavy, and was lying in a transverse position in the woman’s womb.

Last week, I shared a post on Caesarean Section and how some men of God have made it look so sinful and an abomination for any pregnant woman to go through CS.
The comments, both on the post and in my box has left me thinking. It’s been revealing.
A friend lost the wife last week because at church, their pastor had told him not to allow the wife have CS. During their last scan, it emerged that owing to the weight of the baby and how the child was positioned (hope I used the appropriate medical term), it was advisable that they have the child through CS. Any attempt to have the baby through the so called normal process was going to be a disadvantage to both mother and baby. My friend spoke to their pastor and he told him to have faith for the Lord did not intend for the lady to go through that process. To cut the long story short, they lost both mother and baby at the end of the day. They got married only last year November. Lady is just 29.
Sometimes, at church, I hear some prayer leaders and pastors say “no pregnant woman here will go through surgery before she delivers”. When I hear this, I ask myself, since when did surgery become evil? Why do we, in the name of God, put fear into pregnant women, who could have gone through CS and saved themselves and their babies?
CS is not evil. This good God we serve gave men the knowledge to develop this procedure. CS is from God.
