Churches that test wives for pregnancy are not only barbaric and extremely stupid, it’s unnecessary
Nigerian feminist, Ozzy Etomi, is of the view that churches testing their wives for pregnancy are not only barbaric and grossly stupid, but the action itself is unnecessary.
Ozzy shared this thought on his Twitter account. According to her, the exercise is “intrusive and sexist”.
”Churches testing wives for pregnancy is not only barbaric and extremely stupid, it is unnecessary. Sexually active couples can get married, a man with 5 pregnant wives outside can get married, a woman who aborts the baby and passes the test can get married. It’s intrusive and sexist.
Her tweet comes after a Twitter user mentioned that her friend who is about to get married is considering having an abortion after finding out she is pregnant because her church won’t let her get married due to the pregnancy.
”My friend, who is due to get married next month, has just found out that she is pregnant. She’s thinking about an abortion because if the church finds out, they won’t marry her. They are both confused (the groom is a youth leader in the church).
