Yes, you read that right! Women who give birth at a hospital in Zimbabwe are charged $5 for each time they scream due to labor pains!
In theory, it's to curb "false alarms," but it's really about "separating mothers from their money," writes Max Fisher.

about one third of the average citizens yearly income there, explaining why so many women in Zimbabwe die trying to give birth at home.
