Good morning dear friends.
For several weeks now, this subject about abortion in specific cases has been heavily discussed and debated among all. To tell you the truth, I have been shocked by declarations made by the so-called religious persons/organisations as well as some persons fighting for human rights. At one time, I even heard someone arguing the following on the radio : Aborting unhealthy/handicapped unborn foetus will produce a perfectly healthy society. The same person then said that none of us can take the decision to produce such a world? What is wrong with such persons? And why do we need to put religion everywhere? As already debated years back on this blog and with all due respect to those who believe in those things, I simply don’t care what whosoever wrote or said 1000 years back!
Can you imagine the pain for a mother and the child when the latter comes to know that he/she was born following a rape or that beforehand the birth, doctors had already announced that the foetus showed signs of serious health/physical issues? However, the 14-weeks pregnancy restriction is quite debatable from what I read on the media. What about knowingly putting the life of a pregnant woman at stake? We may have written thousands of essays on abortion during our college days and we may hear so many people speaking of destroying an unborn being, yet, only the one who carries the foetus should have right to say the last word.
To conclude, I publicly say YES for abortion in specific cases (interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG) dans des cas spécifiques). As for legalizing abortion, we are not there yet.
A wonderful week to all!
