‘Scandalous’ for UN to push abortions on girls raped by Boko Haram, says pro-life Nigerian groups

Via The Christian Post:

The Foundation for African Heritage, a coalition of non-governmental organizations in Nigeria, has pushed back against suggestions by a United Nations organization that the pregnant women and girls rescued from Boko Haram be allowed to undergo abortions, which is illegal in most cases under local law.

Nigeria’s This Day Live reported that FACH’s Sonnie Ekwowusi described the suggestions to legalize abortion by the United Nations Population Funds as ‘unconscionable, inhuman and scandalous.’ He said that what the girls need instead is real healthcare, social welfare and counseling services that will help them be reintegrated and re-absorbed in the society.
