In the original publication of this article [1], there are several errors. The original sentences and corrections are listed below:

  1. 1.

    Some parents acknowledged that teaching sexual and reproductive health to adolescents bordered on incest (7) and they were in favour of traditional teachings during initiation ceremonies or before marriage (19)

Change “bordered on incest” to “were uncomfortable”, and delete citation 7.

  1. 2.

    Apart from parents, other family members including aunties, uncles, brothers, sisters, and cousins were available, but not a preferred source of information. However, they were influencers of abortion decisions (7, 8, 11, 16, 17, 18, 19,).

Delete citation 7

  1. 3.

    Emergency contraception was not covered in school sexuality education (7)

Change “was not covered” to “scarcely covered”.

  1. 4.

    Morally, adolescents viewed abortion as a sin and that it was wrong (3, 6, 7)

Change “adolescents” to “some adolescents”, and keep citation 3,6,7.

  1. 5.

    In our reviewe, we discovered that abortion was typically more acceptable among the married adolescents compared to the single ones [18] and the decision makerswere most often the male partners

Change “in our reviewe” to “in our review”.
