This fact sheet looks at the policy implications of a national abortion incidence study showing that, even though abortion is heavily restricted throughout Nigeria, 1.25 million Nigerian women had an abortion in 2012. The study found that almost all of the abortions were performed clandestinely, many by unskilled providers or using unsafe methods or both.
