As if childbirth weren't hard enough, women in Zimbabwe had to try to do it in silence. According to a report by Transparency international, a hospital in the southern African nation was charging women $5 every time they screamed for "raising false alarm." The costs add up in a country where the average annual income is about $150 per person—and women who couldn't afford to pay were allegedly detained and charged interest until they could settle up. The good news: The report triggered an investigation, and Transparency international says that since then they've heard no further complaints from women in the area.
