There Is Actually A Hospital In Africa That Charges Every Time A Woman Screams While In Labor
Not to worry, folks. It's not in the United States. But I'm not making this up. It's a hospital in Zimbabwe, and they have a very creative way to make extra money.
According to a recent report from transparency.org, corruption is growing all over the world, and this is a great example .
This hospital charges $5 every time a woman screams, so it will stop false alarms in the hospital. (I wonder what they charge for whimpers)
They also will hit you up for $50 to actually deliver the baby. Not a big deal, unless you only make $150 A YEAR, which is the average income there.
Horrible trying to gouge someone for money when they're in pain like that!
Thank God we're not like that in this country, although I wouldn't stand up and applaud yet According to another recent report from the New York Times. com the United States is the most expensive place to have a baby. It costs almost $10,000, and we have one of the highest death rates in the world.
Have a nice day.
