Unsafe Abortion Kills Over 2,000 Nigerian Women Yearly- Dr Lamai by udomoh(m): 3:16pm On Jun 18, 2019

Unsafe abortion deaths highest in the Northeast.

1 Nigerian woman dies from unsafe termination of pregnancy every 8 minutes


About 2,000 Nigerian women die of unsafe abortion annually with Northeast recording highest rate, says Dr Christopher Lamai, Head of Department, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Federal Teaching Hospital, Gombe.
Lamai made the disclosure to the Nation Newspaper at the capacity building workshop for journalist on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (WSRHR) organized by Ipas Nigeria, an international NGO on Tuesday in Gombe.

He said the rate contributed to 13 per cent of mortality in the country as many women died from abortion more than malaria.

According to him, every eight minutes women die of unsafe abortion while an estimated 220,000 children are left motherless annually as a result of abortion related death.

He advised participants to fully sensitize the public on how to undergo safe abortion towards reducing the rate of mortality in the country.

Earlier in her remarks, Mrs Hauwa Shekarau, the Ipas Country Director said the objectives of the training were to equip journalist with international, regional and national legal framework for the protection of WSRHR.

Shekarau said the training would also transform the attitude of the media on issues around WSRHR.

She said that Ipas was working closely with legislatures and law enforcement among other stakeholders on importance of safe abortion to reduce high rate of mortality in Nigeria.

Abortion in Nigeria is highly restrictive and various governments have not been bold enough or probably lack the political will to review and liberalise our shackling abortion laws. I think the reason is because of our hypocritical deeply religious nature and our refusal to tell ourselves the truth. I am of the opinion that these our primitive abortion laws tramples on the fundamental right of choice of women and something needs to be done urgently about it. Because abortion is illegal many women resort to quacks who are specialists in performing very unsafe termination of pregnancy.
The complications of unsafe termination of pregnancy (TOP) include:
(1) haemorrhage (bleeding)
(2) incomplete abortion
(3)septic abortion (infection)
(4) cervical tear
(5) uterine perforation
(6)cervical incompetence and
(7) infertility due to tubal damage.

The more reason abortion should be legalized. Quacks are making money from abortions while putting the patients life at risk.

If banning it has not stopped people from abortion, its only wise to make it safer.

We can't continue to be rigid, we humans are on this earth to make our lives easier, there are different things leading up to a person wanting an abortion,heck even daily pills and contraceptive methods fail. Fake postinor and daily pill everywhere ,so its not always about irresponsible sex escapade ,we must do way with this rigidity.

our population is exploding, since we cannot take the child policy route ,its time to make abortions safer.

This is propaganda to legalize the killing of more babies through abortion .
The same report that says 2000 women die per year says a woman dies every 8 minutes (this translates to 65700 women a year). So which should we believe?

Your input is wanted here
I'm sure these figures are just a tip of the iceberg.

Abortion should be legalised and done in sterile safe environments like a hospital and not a shed.

Instead of abortion won't it be better if the legs were closed till the right time? Breaking simple laws always leads to making complex laws. Abortion is MURDER.

Abortion should only be legal in certain cases, e.g , rape, health complications or mental instability. You should not get to have an abortion just because you don't want to be responsible for the consequences of your actions. You should not get abortion just because your partner does not want a child. If death is your reward for trying to get rid of a baby then so be it! I have no sympathy for such people!
