A young Nigerian woman who is living with sickle cell anemia has cried out.
The lady tearfully pleaded with couples whose genotypes are both AS to not get married to avoid having children with SS.
In an emotional video she shared on social media, the young lady sobbed profusely as she shared how she has struggled with her health since she was a child due to being born with sickle cell anemia.
The young lady said she’s constantly in pain and sometimes questions why she was born.
She advised couples with AS genotypes not to marry, no matter how much they love each other, in order to avoid having children with SS.
According to her, sickle cell is painful, and patients usually suffer excruciating pains that make them question why they were born.
“If you’re AS and your partner is AS, please do not go ahead and get married. Please don’t. I’m in pains; my whole body is in pains.
“I’m in excruciating pains. Do not bring forth children with Sickle Cell. Sickle Cell is painful; it will make you question why you were born,” she said, wailing bitterly.
