Former Big Brother Naija season 7 Level Up Housemate and reality television star Josephina Ijeoma Otabor, also known as Phyna confirmed that she had gone to God to receive absolution, after committing two abortions.
Phyna stated this during a recent interview with Punch, where she made it clear that in the face of God, she’s very aware that abortion is a sin.
Phyna goes further to reveal that she was born into a Catholic family and she knew after her confession that God has forgiven her.
The reality television star however added that at the moment she only cares about what God says and not what people say about her action.
Phyna however emphasized that she’s not proud of committing abortion but the situation surrounding the act was what she couldn’t help but get rid of the pregnancy.
Phyna’s statement came as a result of interviewer’s question which goes like this, “As a celebrity with a strong influence on the youth, what is your take on abortion?”
Phyna responds, “In the face of God, it’s a sin and I have prayed and gone for confession. I am Catholic and I know God has forgiven me. It is what God says that counts. I don’t care what anybody thinks or says.
“I am not proud of committing abortion but the situation surrounding it was what I couldn’t help. For me, I do not see the essence of bringing children into this world when you are not ready.
“So, it’s either you abstain from sex, use protection or when it happens; you are either ready to chest the baby or take it out, especially when the situation is beyond you.
“Everybody has their own purpose behind their actions, just that there are some who are not scared of committing abortions at all, which is not good.”
