The reality star, who spoke during an interview with Punch stated that she had the first abortion when she was 19 and the second when she was 24.
According to her, the first abortion was as a result of getting pregnant and she couldn’t go back to her parents to tell them she was pregnant. Besides, she was very young and the pregnancy was about two to three weeks old.
Phyna continued that the 2nd pregnancy was when she was 24, after her mandatory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.
The Edo State-native added that she decided to terminate the second pregnancy because her relationship with the boyfriend at the time was getting very toxic and she had to end it.
However, Phyna opined that in as much as she shouldn’t be judged for her decision, she insisted that 98 out of 100 Nigerian women have had abortion.
Phyna 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.
“The second was when I was 24, and I had finished serving then. I was ready to keep it but the relationship was getting toxic. He abused me and always beat me up. I said to myself that I couldn’t do this anymore, so I took it out and that was how l ended the relationship.”
