The buddy of the Twitter user is allegedly considering getting an abortion since her faith will not permit her to marry her partner because of the pregnancy.
The practice of churches testing brides for pregnancy before they enter into holy nuptials with their spouses is cruel, in the opinion of well-known Nigerian feminist Ozzy Etomi.
Following a Twitter user’s post about the situation one of her friends is currently in after learning she’s pregnant just weeks before her wedding, Ozzy expressed her opinions online. She argued that the practice is intrusive and sexist.
The buddy of the Twitter user is reportedly thinking of getting an abortion since her church will not allow her and her fiancé to get married as a result of the pregnancy.
Read the tweet below;
“My friend who’s supposed to get married next month, just found out she’s pregnant. She’s thinking of an abortion because if the church finds out, they won’t wed her. They are both confused (the groom is a youth leader in church).”
However, Ozzy believes that it is not only cruel but also exceedingly unwise for churches to test newlyweds for pregnancy.
Read Ozzy’s tweet below;
“Churches testing brides for pregnancy is not only barbaric and extremely foolish, its pointless. Couples who are sexually active can be wed, a man with 5 women pregnant outside can be wed, a woman who aborts the baby & passes the test can be wed. Its intrusive and sexist.”
