Unknown abortion type


A 15 year old girl who is sexually active discovered she is pregnant. She confessed to a friend who took her to an auxiliary health worker for abortion in a small shop. What kind of abortion is this?

  • It is an unsafe abortion. It is also an illegal abortion
    It is unsafe because it wasn’t done by a qualified medical personnel such as a trained doctor or an experienced midwife and from the story,it must have been done without meeting standard medical conditions.

  • To add to what has been stated up there, carrying out an abortion for a 15 year old in this story without any medical evidence that the pregnancy is life threatening to her is illegal in Nigeria.
