Nigerian actress, Uche Ogbodo has shared her views on marriage, pregnancy and abortion.
In a lengthy video posted to her IG, the actress spoke about her first pregnancy at 27 and her current one now that she’s 34.
She explained that despite all she went through in the hands of her ex when she was pregnant with her daughter at the age of 27, she kept the child because she doesn’t support abortion because of her church doctrines.
She added that abortion is against her beliefs as a Catholic, then said it is silly for a woman above 30 to have an abortion because she’s waiting for marriage.
She advised women to have their kids, rather than wait till they are no longer fertile because they want to get married first.
She went on to reveal that marriage doesn’t favour everyone and gave an example with an old acquaintance who no longer looks beautiful since she got married who she described as looking “haggard, old and ugly” since she got married.
“So who marriage help? If with marriage and the almighty man that you’re marrying, you’re looking terrible, without marriage, who knows how you go look?
“Please, stop killing your children, especially when you’re of age. Have your kids. If marriage comes, marry oh, if marriage no come, raise your children now.”
“I’m 34. I already have a kid. This is going to be my second child. I have a boyfriend who loves me, I’m happy and I’m having my baby. “
She said she didn’t “plan for this but it happened” and “I’m not a candidate for abortion.”
She said: “I can never in my life support abortion. I don’t support abortion because I’m Catholic.”
