Nollywood actress Uche Ogbodo recently addressed fellow women on social media in a video post shared on her Instagram page.
The expectant movie star who touched on the issue of marriage, abortion and childbearing started off by using herself as an example and giving an insight into some of her personal experience.
Ogbodo disclosed that she welcomed her first child during her twenties and she made the decision not to abort the pregnancy even though her partner at the time was not completely taking responsibility.

The actress went on to add that her background as a catholic is also another reason why she can never consider abortion. According to Ogbodo, if she never opted to abort her pregnancy at the age of 27, then nothing can warrant her to make such a decision now that she’s aged 34.
Ogbodo said this in reaction to trolls who continue to attack her and bring to fore the fact that she is yet to be married. The movie star happily noted that she has a boyfriend that loves her.
In a different portion of the video, the actress also talked about how society puts pressure on women and how a lot of them have refused to bear children simply because they are not married and are still seeking the right man.
Ogbodo added that such women also get criticised by friends and family if they make the mistake of getting pregnant out of wedlock. She, however, warned that such women should understand that they are getting old and age is no longer on their side.
The movie star added that she gets worried when she sees ladies who are already in their 30s and are still aborting instead of starting a family.
