Due to religious and cultural sensitivities, Nigerians live in denial of just how common teenage sex is, which has led to high rate of pregnancy among girls between ages 15 and 18 years.
The families of these teenagers are stigmatized by friends and family members with insinuations that they are unable to raise their female children with proper moral and religious standards.
This stigmatization most often leads to unsafe abortion as the teens cannot absorb the heat from the society.
