Abortion …Act of right, race consciousness or spiritual dis-ease?

 

A Celebration of Women

has no opinion to make on this ‘Issue‘ other than to suggest stopping the Debate and seek a Solution: 

“Judging or challenging an ‘effect’ in life is like pissing in the wind if one nevers seeks the truth to the ’cause’. One would still think that if we, as a society, researched more into the cause; that being ‘pregnancy’, and less into ‘effect’; that being ‘abortion’, there might be some HOPE for CHANGE.”

Abortion … an act of desparation, race consciousness or spiritual dis-ease?

 

As a topic for recovery, keeping an open mind, in the quest of healing for all; one must show compassion in all cases. There are many women in this world that have awakened under the bright white lights of a recovery room, who did not want to be there. This issue of abortion is deeply rooted into our society for there has not yet; nor may never be a unanimous perspective on this action.

In these times, we have so many developing countries over populated with children that are starving; how is it that a completely developed society is getting pregnant when they don’t want the offspring? There is no rhyme nor reason to this situation, making exceptions for the drug addicted, the raped or the mentally ill. There is definitely an imbalance of some kind in our world that truly needs to be addressed.

The thought that comes to my mind is that we are living in a society where everyone takes everything for granted. Think of our world without electricity. How would 99% of the western world even survive? We, as a developed nation have been spoiled… generationally. The deterioration of Taking Responsibility for our own Actions is at an all time high…is my observation. Not only does this self serving attitude hurt those living within this confine; it is now hurting our future generations. For every young woman today that aborts will be one troubled soul throughout her lifetime for living with the added stress of seeking Self Forgiveness; for regardless of her own perspective, she will have removed a piece of herself, leaving a void. The laws of nature have no room for a void.

How can any woman not hold onto a sense of missing, loss, death, grief without proper help for healing?

Abortion, as a national discussion in the first place is a sad state of affairs. Just like the other forms of fear, not wanting to adopt another’s child to love and nurture, is also a piece of this puzzle that perpetuates this crisis of abortion. If these accidental pregnancies had a set structure to fall into, that was the acceptable ‘norm’ in our society; like everything else that has been established as the rule of thumb-right or wrong, it would become a habit.

If these young women had a place with the support mechanism to ensure a healthy prenancy, a cost free delivery and a guaranteed placement; perhaps not only would the number of abortions go down, the number of pregnancies just might follow.

… this crisis our nation is facing is also another possible fall-out of HATE.

Too many young women are having way too much unresponsible relations. Why is this happening? How do these young women from a developed country end up with an unwanted pregnancy? Who is researching the answers to those questions? Why is there an epidemic of teen-aged pregnancy at this, a modern age? Does the health care system hold any responsibility for these statistics? Is there a void in our education system? Is our youth looking for someone to LOVE? Are the parents, of this age, turning a blind eye to the reality of their children’s behaviours or needs?

The questions are endless; and now is the time to start working on answers. Don’t you think?

WHO is going to Take Action healing the cause of this very serious and severe issue?

Having given lateral birth on four occasions, I trust myself as an expert in childbirth. As such, I guarantee society that after a few years of these young women living through the preganancy, the delivery and then the sacrifice of giving away all that work, there would definitely be a second thought to a second irresponsible pregnancy.

Also, these abortion clinics that are taking in drug addicts, etc. and offering services of abortion to these legally not responsible, under the influence, should be held responsible for reporting said abortion to a confidential rehabilitation department that would not only enforce treatment, but, would cover all costs incurred.

  • WHO will address the ‘Spiritual Dis-ease’ causing this dilemna?

  • WHEN are we, as a society, going to focus more of the ’cause’ and less on the ‘effect’?    

There are women out there dying inside themselves and to all appearances , nobody cares what they are ‘feeling’, let alone how they are ‘feeling’. How without a pro-active, preventative infrastructure set in place can we ever hope to change the direction of this challenge we call ABORTION?The following essay, young author anonymous, outlines details of the hows and whats; yet, one truly must deal with the whys if we, as a society are ever going to find our way back into the light. With so many children in our world that are starving, neglected and/or abused, we truly must address the ‘issue’ of prenancy….don’t you think?

“If we, as a society worked more diligently on the hows and whats of ‘pregnancy’ ,

there may not need to be such an overwhelming ‘issue’ of abortion.”

Abortion is defined as the termination of pregnancy before the fetus is capable of independent life.

Abortions must be conducted before the end off six months, or the fetus will leave the womb and it would be considered a premature birth. There are two types of abortions. One is spontaneous and the other is induced. If the fetus ways less than 18oz or is less than 20 weeks into the pregnancy, it is usually considered an abortion. Spontaneous abortions are known by another name, miscarriages. These usually occur during the first three months of pregnancy. It is estimated that 25% of all pregnancies end in spontaneous abortion. The second form of abortion is induced abortion. This is the deliberate termination of the fetus.

There are four main types of induced abortions:

  • The first takes place up to 12 weeks. It is called vacuum aspiration. This is where a tube attached to a vacuum is inserted into the uterus and sucks out the embryo and all other material.
  • The second type takes place after the 15th week and is called saline infusion. Here, the doctors replace a little fluid with a salt solution. This causes the uterus to contract. The fetus is then expelled.
  • The third type is a hysterotomy. This is a similar procedure to a cesarean section. The only difference is, in this operation, is that the cut is smaller and lower.
  • The fourth type is available in the first fifty days. It is a drug called RU-486. It was developed in France and approved for sale there in 1988.

Clinical trials in the United States began in 1994. When performed under proper conditions, the sooner the person has the baby, the less risk she is at. The likelihood of complications increase as the woman gets farther into the pregnancy. Although, an abortion has less of a risk of injury than does actually delivering the baby.

Abortion is one topic that has been heavily debated.

Many cases have gone to court over an abortion. Perhaps the most famous case was Roe vs. Wade. It was a case that was settled in 1973 under Justice Blackman. The Supreme Court ruled that they could not ban abortions in the first six months of the pregnancy. After six months, the states can ban an abortion except in cases in which the woman’s health is at risk. I think that there is a lot that can be done. First of all, I think that some kind of law needs to be created that will be supported by many.

Secondly, we have to let the public be aware of all the things that are going on around them. Lastly, we have to keep the children’s future in mind. Here is what I think should be done. A law should be passed that says: A woman does not have the right to an abortion, except in the case of rape or when the birth may endanger the life of the mother. If a woman is not eligible for an abortion, but does not want the baby, the state should find someone to adopt the baby. An additional fund should be given to the mother for delivering the baby.

The one’s chosen to adopt should be well picked and capable of supporting the child well. I feel this way because I am pro-life. I feel that every baby should be given the right to live. A baby should not be denied life because the mother does not want to care for it. That is why I feel that the unwanted children should always be set for adoption before the birth of the child. I also feel that the fund should be given to the mother because she had to take care of the baby in her womb for nine months.

I feel that women should be able to get an abortion in the event of rape because it is not with a person that she planned to have a child with. It is also obvious why I feel that women should be eligible for an abortion if her health is in danger. I have told you the way I feel, now it is time that we all make a decision on this topic. This is not some issue that will just die. “

“We have to make a ruling on this topic that people won’t regret.”
