I’ve never done abortion – Phyna swallows her words
Big Brother Naija ‘2022 ‘Level Up’ winner, Josephina Otabor aka Phyna has swallowed her words regarding the claim she made about having abortions.
The reality TV star had said in a Punch interview that she had two abortions when she was 19 and 24 years old.
Phyna explained that she did that because she didn’t want to have a child with her former boyfriend who was physically abusive and toxic during the time they dated.
The Edo-born brand ambassador said; “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.”
She explained “In my family as a whole, we are very open. People just read meaning to things and say whatever they want, I really do not care. I was just laughing at their responses to me because those that know me know me, I am an open book.
I actually responded to that woman when she said “I can’t respond to you, you are an abortionist,” and then I said yes that I have committed abortions. It is fine how people want to see me, I am not ashamed of anything about myself. If I ever make a mistake, I own up to my mistakes. When my dad called me about it, he asked why I said something like that, I just said daddy I learnt it from you oo.
But in a recent chat with actor, Uche Maduagwu, Phyna denied doing abortions in the past, she said she only made the statement as banter in response to a troll that made an unflattering remark about her.
