Pregnant Boko Haram Victims Pushed to Abort Babies Conceived by Rape

5/27/2015 Nigeria (Christian Examiner)


The devastation that Boko Haram has inflicted upon women in northern Nigeria is unspeakable, but now the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is advocating abortions for those women who conceived by rape perpetrated by Boko Haram militants. Christian women, especially, have seen their husbands murdered, have been forced to marry fighters, and have been raped after witnessing Muslim prayers that the heinous sex act would result in Muslim children. After all of this horror, why add to the trauma and tragedy by pushing to murder the defenceless unborn increasing the horror for these persecuted mothers?


Full Story

  • Pray that the released women will not be forced to undergo abortions, which could cause them further physical and emotional trauma in their already weakened state
  • Pray that Nigeria’s leaders will lead with wisdom and discernment as they reintroduce the released women back into society
  • Pray for the safety and return of the thousands of girls abducted by Boko Haram
