Abortion is a phenomenon that cannot be wished away. Its apparent inevitability has necessitated various jurisdictions adorning it with cloaks of regulated legitimacy. Nigeria, however, maintains a highly conservative rigidity on the issue, leading to rather unfortunate consequences - Human Rights desecration inclusive.
This paper aims to appraise Nigeria's legal position on abortion.
With comparative analysis of the legal positions in other jurisdictions and relevant human rights provisions, critique and recommendation for reforms of Nigeria's stance will be proffered.
