Why I had abortions at age 19, 24 — BBNaija’s Phyna

 

Former Big Brother Naija winner, Ijeoma Otabor, popularly known as Phyna, has revealed reasons she had abortions at the age of 19 and 24.

In an interview with Punch Newspapers, the reality tv star had said she had an abortion at 19 because she couldn’t tell her parents and she removed the second foetus because her partner was abusive and always beat her.

When asked, “Can you tell us the reasons for taking the decision?”

Phyna responded by saying, “As for my reasons for taking abortion pills, if there are 100 women in Nigeria today, 98 have done abortions. So, no one should judge me.

“I was in a 12-year relationship then and I was so young. The first abortion was when I was 19; I couldn’t go home to tell my parents that I was pregnant at that age. And the two pregnancies were so early, like two to three weeks, that I could just use tablets.

“The second was when I was 24, and I had finished serving them. I was ready to keep it, but the relationship was getting toxic. He abused me and always beat me up. I said to myself that I couldn’t do this anymore, so I took it out and that was how I ended the relationship.”
