In an interview with one of the best medical doctors in the state, we found out that Abortion is not a good option for ladies who wants to easily get rid of their unwanted pregnancies. – Abortion is not a good option –
My Encounter With A Pregnant Lady
According to the Doctor;
During one of my routine clinics, a Lady of about 23 years walked into my consulting room, seeking assistance on how to terminate the pregnancy of 3 months in her.
On further questioning I discovered that this was the 7th baby she was terminating, aside from the previous one she had to deliver and throw away. Abortion is not a good option.
I counseled her on the need to keep it and commence antenatal care and come back for preconception care and family planning methods after delivering the baby.
Well I know what’s going through your mind is “what a useless Girl killing her babies when others are looking for one”. Please will you keep quiet Mr. and Mrs. Holier than thou?
I put it to you that 96% of sexually active women including you reading this article, both married and single has at a point in their life terminated pregnancy because it was by chance and not by choice!.
Mind You I’m not advocating or supporting Criminal Abortions, but I want to make you know that so many people don’t know how to prevent pregnancy, some that know don’t even know how to use the contraceptive methods well.
