- I was at a naming ceremony yesterday and the pastor in charge went on and on about the meaning and impact of a name in an individual’s life, how a name determined who you would end up being in life and how it was a form of sowing into a child’s destiny. He said you start speaking into the destiny of a Child even before the child is born. Then my ever running brain picked that up,and within seconds of assimilating that, and my brain trying to interpret this piece of information I just blurted out ” and some girl somewhere would be carrying an unwanted pregnancy and then bring such baby to the world, that baby’s first moment even as a fetus would be in bitterness” I started assuming, this girl is probably having issues with the person that got her pregnant accepting the child, she would be thinking of how her parents,religion and society would accept her new status! I assume this moments would be moments of silent cries, biting of fingers and regrets. So I ask why bring such child to probably end up suffering?
As fate would have it, because I work with inspiration, some minutes later I got a mail from The Guardian Newspaper blog I follow and guess what it said “UN asks Nigeria to ease abortion restriction for boko haram rape victims” I’m like hmmmm! Interesting.
So according to the report, the United Nation wants Nigeria to make an amendment to the previously laid down law of abortion being legal only to women that have their lives at risk.
Several of the survivors of the horrific experience with the boko haram are now pregnant by their rapist and several reportedly wish to terminate these unwanted pregnancies.
Most of these victims are teenage girls, they have achieved little or virtually nothing in life,would we call it wickedness, sin, or murder if they decide to abort these pregnancies?
I’m also thinking lack of access to abortion would also add to the horrendous suffering the victims have been through.
I don’t mean to sound all anti Christ ish or a sinner but I think from my points you know where I stand on this matter.
What’s your take on this, I really want to know? Abortion:solution to unwanted pregnancy or not?
