I Have Had Two Abortions – Bez Idakula’s Wife, Bolatito

27

The daughter of former Oyo State Governor Rashidi Ladoja said she lived in shame and guilt for years over the choice she made. Sharing her experience on a Twitter thread on Easter Day, the mother of three surviving children said despite deserving punishment for her sins, she was set free by Jesus Christ who took it all upon himself. Her posts read: > “I’ve had 2 abortions. I took the only options I thought were available to me at the time. “Even in this age of pro-choice, I am not personally proud of the choices I made. And I lived in shame and guilt for years. “It almost crippled me when I found myself fighting for the life of my daughter. “I felt I deserve this punishment. Now I’m ready, and God is finally ready to get me back. “But then I didn’t understand the salvation and righteousness that I have in Christ. That, in his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ destroyed my shame and gave me a new name, a new beginning and identity. “Even in the midst of my ‘sin’ and deepest shame, God couldn’t have punished me because that is what Christ took on when he chose that sacrifice. “In the stripes and death, he took all my sin, and in his resurrection, he set me FREE. “You begin to know that your works are just you walking in agreement with what God has already done. “I am here doing all that I do because nothing holds me back. No guilt, no condemnation, no shame! Christ took it all.” A former staff of First City Monument Banks, Bolatito married Bez in 2014. They had their first child in March 2015, but the girl died less than 48 hours after birth. Their second, a boy named Joshua, was born in July 2016. They welcomed a girl named Immanuel in August 2018. Another girl named Seven was born on July 13, 2020. Bolatito is founder of The Healing Cradle, a support group for women who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss.
