Thanks all for your replies.
Many of ignorant past generations of mankind had treated women as mere chattels or babies producing factories They deny women of their free will and
right to make a decision on aborting or not aborting their babies.
Husbands or in-laws demanding children, even when the mother cannot cope.
Husbands or in-laws demanding specific sex of child, demands the mother to abort the unwanted sex.
Negligent fathers who refused to take care of the family.
Worried mothers who see no future or security for their child in a dysfunctional society
Women too are fellow humans with a mind of their own. When they are robbed of their decision, then what happens next will be the responsibility of
those who robbed her of such.
Will she love her born child in the case where abortion is banned, and where abortion is not banned - can she live with the tragedy of a lost human
child within her whereby the decision to abort was not hers to make, or regret making one?
There is a wider perspective over the abortion issue than just a law intent as a solution of imposition. Why did the 'unwanted pregnacy' occured?
Why the change of mind? Why have a child in the first place? - are but some of the questions that gets thrown up.
Ultimately, society plays a role over the issue of our most vital, critical and precious resource - children. Without them, mankind will end, as
simple as that.
Mainstream religions had been the greatest pro-life proponents of 'pro-life'. It had been in the teachings since the dawn of our civilisation.
But if abortions had risen - legal and illegal ones, then mainstream religions will have to ACCEPT blame for their FAILURE to convince, sway hearts
and minds to encourage the furtherance of our species through the beauty of the basic family unit. 'Bans' are stupid concepts born out of stupidity,
presuming 'might' will win ,for whatever laws one man creates, another can destroy, or not follow.
'Power and Might may be derive from barrel of guns or draconian laws, but it is the hearts and minds that rule mankind. '
Society too will have to share that FAILURE, for it had not given the mother-to-be enough assurance on the future and safety of herself and child, for
example, the dire economic situation we are in right now worldwide and threats of war on the horizons.
Only in acknowledging truths and realities, no matter how painful it will be, can we correct them to progress and evolve. Thus, may the pro-life camp
consider carefully and look at the wider picture of realities and responsibilities.
