A Family Planning Consultant, Mr Appolonia Eke, has warned against the use of $ex dolls as alternative family planning method, saying it is s0d0my.
Eke, who is also the Financial Secretary, Public Health Sustainable Advocacy Initiative (PHSAI), made this known on Thursday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
She said that the use of $ex dolls was unscriptural and should not be encouraged.
According to her, it is like having !nterc0urse with an inanimate object which the scripture strongly objects to.
“The use of $ex dolls as a means of family planning is s0d0my and should not be encouraged.
“It is like having an !nterc0urse with a dead person or an inanimate object.
“The scripture is very clear about $ex and it forbids having it with either the dead or animals.
“Aside that, there may be other consequences, including electrocution of the user, because $ex doll is attached to electrical appliances for it to work.
“The user may be electrocuted because it is powered by electricity and such thing should not be associated with family planning methods,’’ she said.
Eke said that there should be adequate rest for the mother before the next conception, adding that frequent childbirth was dangerous to the health of the mother.
“The best method to control childbirth is through family planning which Lagos State Government had made more affordable now.
“The woman should be given adequate rest before the next conception because the womb needs rest.
“It is like an apple shaped structure which is being scrapped on the surface.
“The walls of the womb needs rest after childbirth, because it is enlarged after the childbirth and needed to contrast after childbirth; frequent enlargements will not help the womb to heal.
“If this is not adhered to, it can lead to death and high maternal mortality rate we are talking about,’’ she said.
