The Important Conversations About The Woman Whose Husband And Doctor Removed Her Womb Without Her Consent

   

Days ago, a twitter user, Dr.Olufunmilayo shared the story of a man who allegedly connived with a doctor to remove his wife’s womb because they have five children already. According to the poster who shared the story online, the man noted that he “owns” his wife body and organs.

The man said that his wife deliberately wants to kill him with responsibilities as they had agreed to stop at three kids but eventually had five including two miscarriages. Although, he was given the option of undergoing a vasectomy, he refused, claiming he isn’t the “problem” but his wife who is supposed to use the birth control pills.

He did it without the wife’s knowledge and now that the woman just found out, she is not happy. Family and church members are telling her to forgive him and move back in but she has refused to go home.

This story has generated so much conversation online that it also became a topic for discussion on Your Views programme on TVC. The video of the programme circulating online showed one of the four presenters, Tope Mark-Odigie explaining why some men think they have every right over their wives

Having received so much backlash on her statement, she recorded videos to state what she really meant. According to her, our culture has made men believe that they have the right to do anything with their wives’ bodies since they paid their bride price.

Your husband can do whatever he wants with your body – Presenter says while reacting to news of man removing wife’s womb without her consent . . Twitter was on heat a few days ago after a Nigerian doctor via his twitter handle, told the story of a woman whose husband connived with his doctor to remove her womb because he did not want more kids.According to the story which happened in Festac, the couple planned on three kids but ended up having 5 prompting the husband to do what he did . . Discussing the news on TVC’s show, The View, one of the presenters, Tope Mark-Odigie, stated that as long as they couple got married, the husband can do whatever he wanted with the woman. In her words; . . . ”We cannot behave like the western world. We are in Nigeria and we are in Africa. We are a people that will tell a man to prostrate for hundred times to marry one woman. We are the one that will ask a man to bring a million Naira, to bring a goat, to buy everything possible because you are giving over that woman unto the man to take care of her, to make decisions for her, as long as you own her. . . . As long as we still live within that rule, we cannot begin to form westernized. We cannot begin to form modernity. We cannot begin to form feminism. Except we want to expunge traditional marriage. So, we are going to do legal wedding which means that I am bound only by the laws of this marriage. Then if my husband does anything contrary to my legal rights, of which we have shared everything in the marriage 50-50. . . . If you want to do culture, do culture. If you want to do modern 21st century family setting, then you focus on that. But you cannot eat your cake and have it. In our country, we have prioritized culture more than any other thing. . . . A man has a right to decide how a woman should look.If he wants her to be slim or be fat he would say add weight. He would tell her I have bought you. I own you. So I tell you how to look. I tell you how I want your body to look. I control your life.”
