A Pulse reader, Faith, has been married for 12 years without a baby to show for it. But when she was a single lady, she had had series of abortions and thinks that could be the reason she has not had any baby yet.

This is the letter she sent in:

"My name is Faith and I have been married to a wonderful man for the past 12 years with no fruit of the womb to show. My husband has been very supportive and has stood by me despite pressure from his family to get another wife.

But I am getting worried as I am not getting any younger and my chances of having a baby is growing thin by the day.

We have carried out several tests and the doctors keep saying there is nothing wrong with us but I am afraid the problem could be mine because when I was single, I lived the fast life like most girls.

I had my first abortion when I was in the secondary school and before I got married, I had terminated more than eight pregnancies. I am not sure if this has anything to do with my inability to have a child now that I desperately need one.

I need help fast before I lose my marriage."

The teaser for the day was:

Does having abortions prevent a woman from having babies later in life?

How Nigeria voted:

63% - Yes, it reduces her ability to have babies

37% -  No, abortions have nothing to do with a woman having babies when she needs them

How would you vote?
