April. 24, 2021
Ini Edo is a Nigerian actress. She began her film career and has featured in more than 100 movies since her debut. She was appointed by the United Nations as a united Nations Habitat Youth Envoy. Ini is one of the most successful actresses to ever grace the movie industry and like every other person she had quite a past, she suffered from 3 miscarriages in her marriage of 6 years and now she has recounted how she had an abortion at a very young age.
In her words; " I was 16 years old when I found out I was pregnant. I had been having unprotected s*x with my boyfriend for quite a while and I never really thought I would get pregnant. I was in such a twisted situation, my mind was going crazy. My boyfriend wanted me to have the baby, as well as my mom. Everyone else in my family felt an abortion would be best for me. At the time I was living with my father, so no matter what had the last word. I had so many mixed up emotions about having an abortion and I honestly didn' t know what to do best for me.
I started detaching myself from the pregnancy and everything seemed like a dream. I had to wait until I was at least eight weeks pregnant to get my abortion and the time had come. I was so nervous waiting in that room. I had no clue what to expect. I went into the procedure room and got medicine that made me feel wheezy and out of the world. Laying down on the flatbed was the last thing I remembered. Honestly, abortion isn' t the worst part, it' s the thoughts that follow.
I went to the Pregnancy Center and got an ultrasound, but I wasn' t even five weeks pregnant, so I didn' t even actually see a heartbeat. My father was set on me having an abortion so I thought that would be it. I am on the right track now and I am going to be a Junior in high school. Sometimes I wonder what my life would have been like if I had my baby but at the same time I know I did what was wrong for me and I are not okay with that. To this day I still feel like the most wicked thing on earth. "
