The Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Nigeria (SOGON) yesterday raised alarm about the increasing number of women in the country dying from unsafe abortion, which results in as much as 25 per cent of deaths.
“We need to review the law because anytime you talk about abortion in this country, people shy away; they feel it is not proper. But people are dying. There are instances of accidental pregnancy, gang rape, incest etc. All these abuses occur. We need to address the law so that we can save more mothers from dying unnecessarily.”
