A new baby born with a serious deformity has been attributed to its mother taking abortion pills in a bid to flush it out.
According to a nurse, Sylvia Ijeoma, the baby which was delivered at the hospital where she works, had an hydrocephalus head (a condition in which fluid accumulates in the brain, typically in young children, enlarging the head and sometimes causing brain damage), one missing ear and a cleft palate (a congenital split in the roof of the mouth), all caused by the use of pills by the mother.
This is what Nurse Ijeoma wrote:
"To the youths of our time, do not get a lady or gal pregnant. An innocent baby was delivered today in our hospital.
She had hydrocephalus head, no ear (left) cleft lip, and cleft palate, due to the use of contraceptive pills. Be warned don't fall a victim."
It was gathered that the pregnant woman had tried all forms of contraceptives in a bid to abort the baby but it stubbornly refused to be flushed out and the result is the serious deformity she is going to live with.
