dc.description.abstractAbortion has been defined as the “deliberate destruction of an unborn child”,or it’s “intentional expulsion or removal from the womb other than for the principal purpose of producing live birth or the removal of dead tissues” 1 . It has also been described as the expulsion of the foetus from the uterus before it has reached the stage of viability 2 . The termination of a pregnancy can be either spontaneous when a miscarriage occurs without a direct intervention, or induced when there is a direct physical intervention to terminate the pregnancy. This article examines the legislative policies and criminal laws restricting abortions and their implications for reproductive rights. It concludes by proposing a rights-basedlegal response to terminations that would effectively control and regulate safe abortions and protect women’s reproductive rights in Nigeria.en_US
