Allow Girls Impregnated By Boko Haram Have Abortion...UN Tells FG

United Nations have urged Nigeria to amend its Rape Law to allow girls raped and impregnated by Boko Haram have abortion. Many of the girls who survived captivity are now pregnant. They wish to terminate their unwanted pregnancies and lack of access to abortion would only add to the horrendous suffering the former captives had been through.

In Nigeria, abortion is only legal when the life of the woman is at risk.

In this case, no life is at risk. I honestly think Government should allow the girls have the babies after which the babies will be taken to orphanage or care  home with government taking full responsibilities for their up keep.

What is your own view?
