I wrote this blog post right about noon. I thought I had published it but alas! Here it is all the same.

Abortion is a hotly discussed topic worldwide and I thought I can give my thought or two on it. Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy so that it does not lead to the conception of a child. There are a number of things, reasons, that may lead to an abortion. Some are “justified” while some “aren’t”. I say justified because in some cases the medical institutions and government agree to them. Such cases are when the pregnancy is due to rape or incest or when the baby’s organs are underdeveloped to the point he can’t survive, and if the pregnancy poses a threat to the mother’s life. Those are the instances abortion is termed legal. These are very narrow case scenarios, don’t you agree? So what about the rest of the women who don’t fit here? This is what makes abortion so controversial. I first heard of abortion when I was 10 years old. I wouldn’t dare tell the story, it’s a pretty sad one.

This is a topic which I’ll have to take sides. Some women will say I shouldn’t be talking about abortion. Well, a man and woman both contribute to the making of a baby. So the termination of a pregnancy should be a decision made by the two. This abortion topic really got me wondering why people have sex? Why do you have sex? It’s so sad if you end up getting more surprised when the lady gets pregnant, call it unwanted or unexpected. In life, probably in every single situation they say you will never be ready. You will never be completely ready for those kids you think you know well now, if they got back to being todlers you’ll still have a hard time taking care of them! Abortion just makes sex and pregnancy sound nasty. It’s like some villain taking away your peace and life. Statistically speaking, 1 out every 4 pregnancies end up getting aborted. This is in countries that allow and those that do not allow abortion. Why not just make it legal then? Not today, not any other day friend. What good comes off abortion? In fact it is the third most leading cause of maternal deaths in the world. I can’t see the light in it. Whether safe or unsafe, abortion is a crime!
