I am saddened to see human fighting another human over this issue. Abortion is no simple matter, for it involves many complex issues that needs to be
addressed, and cannot be simply attributed to one cause for a woman to abort or not abort.
Talk is often cheap, but when a female walks into the abortion clinic, many issues rages through her mind. No human will be spared from emotions, no
matter how brave they are, for something is being done to one's body, regardless if abortion is banned or not banned.
Thus, the need for compassion.
For the religious faithfuls, in both the book of Bible and Koran, it was written that our Messiah was witnessed to a crowd gathering to stone a woman
By biblical law, it was how punishment was to be carried yet.
Yet, our Messiah courageously stood up and addressed the crowd, and said 'let whomever is perfect, cast the first stone'.. The mob looked at one
another and walked away.
Our Messiah then told the lady to 'sin no more'.
Why did he do such a thing? Afterall, it was our common Creator's guide on how justice is to be served - stoning.
But the thing is - The jews were no longer the chosen or perfect as when during the time of Moses. They had sinned just like any other human by the
time of our Messiah's arrival. They had made a mess and corrupted the laws of God with dogma and self serving avarice within societies. Everyone of
them were just as guilty as anyone else, just that they happened to not get caught with crimes or anti-social behaviour.
Take the case of the woman's adultry as an example:- what were the migitating circumstances that lead to such a situation? Where the witnesses'
accounts reliable? What evidences were there?, etc, etc. Many questions were unanswered, except that a self righteous mob was ready to kill a woman.
Fortunately today, such laws had evolved to allowing the couple to divorce before a court, so that no lives be killed, a fairer system for all to
co-exist, as each are not without sin, overt or covert.
Similarly, it is easy to condemn the woman who aborted the child. But what were the circumstances that led her to do such a thing? The failure is not
hers, but ours - religion and society, whom had been given the task to administer to the needs of mortals and yet had failed to provide and counsel
the woman to give birth.
Instead, religion and society create laws to criminalize abortion, and to condemn the women and staff performing such abortions, then wash our hands
and await to condemn another troubled woman seeking for abortion, rather to find ways to reach out to them.
'Let he/she who is without sin, cast the first stone.'
