A 38-year-old pregnant woman was found dead in her home Sunday in Nigeria, likely from abortion drugs that she took to abort her unborn baby.
PM News reports Enobong Udoh, 38, was discovered dead Sunday morning in her apartment in Igbogbo, Lagos, Nigeria.
Lagos State Police said a neighbor, Blessing Pius, contacted police after finding the woman’s body, The Eagle Online reports.
Later, police said they arrested Udoh’s boyfriend, Wisdom Okoro, 50, of Orlu.
According to police, Okoro said his girlfriend told him that she was pregnant in February. According to police, Okoro said he went to visit Udoh on April 10 and she told him that she “had terminated her pregnancy.” Local news reports suggest she took abortion drugs to end her unborn baby’s life and Okoro may have bought them for her.
Police said they still have many unanswered questions, and they are investigating Okoro for homicide.

Abortions are not safe for mothers or unborn babies. The purpose of an abortion is to kill an unborn child, but sometimes mothers die, too. Abortion activists often down-play the risks and claim abortions are extremely safe; but research suggests otherwise.
In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control reported more than 400 women died from legal abortions in the United States, including 12 that year. However, the numbers likely are much higher. Some states do not report their abortion data to the CDC, and the abortion industry does not always report complications to the state, even when required to do so.
World-wide, it is not known how many women die along with their unborn babies in abortions.
Recently, medical groups representing more than 30,000 doctors in America emphasized that abortions are not “essential” or “urgent” medical procedures. Abortion complications include infections, blood clots, hemorrhaging and an incomplete abortion. Abortion risks include future preterm births, breast cancer, suicide, anxiety/depression, and death. And it is not true that abortions are safer than childbirth.
