This essay was exhibited as one of my assessments of the Academic and Media Literacy.
The unborn child on the mother’s womb will be the God’s gift for all the matured women. But when the contradiction of parents and partners or conflicts in the society due to labor reasons, abortion was came to its solution. With nothing but a sin for all kinds, it will shut down the woman’s life morally, psychologically, and spiritually. For me, I am against abortion because it terminates the defenseless child and it is a crime that should not be legalized.
Immature women were always getting in trouble, simply because of disuse of their life. It all starts with a pre-marital sex which is common for teens through limitless curiosity. After that, unexpected pregnancy appears and everything is in ruined due to the effects of having a sin outside of marriage. The only answer to continue their lives and to avoid misfortunes from parents (who were disappointed in this result) was ABORTION, which is the way to terminate the child away from the womb (Angelo, 2006). Abortion is like a life cycle that kills the womb due to the effects of being a ruined person.
The abortion in the Philippines was in a whore image. The incidence of abortion increases since 1994 with 400,000 to 500,000 and rising. 70% of unwanted pregnancies end in abortion and the economic reason was the greatest factor to abort the baby off the womb. Doctors who perform abortions clandestinely in clinics typically charge 2,000 to 5,000 pesos, or $37 to $93, according to one report from New York Times (Conde, 2005).
Killing the fetus on the womb of the mother’s would consider as a mortal sin and a crime. The divine law says that “Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person - among which is the inviolable right of every innocent being to life” (CCC 2272). It is revealed on the Bible in the Ten Commandments, the fifth law says that: “You shall not kill” (Exodus 20:13). In the Philippine legal law, it is a crime and not a practice for all Catholics. Article 258 of The Reviser Penal Code in the Philippines states that further imposes a higher prison term on the woman or her parents if the abortion is undertaken "in order to conceal [the woman's] dishonor".
In order to go safe, the couples have to decide on a safety practice of family planning to accept the responsibility as a family. It also means birth control, but with adequate method in choosing their child for their brighter future. Giving an opportunity to be a responsible parent would be the time to be a matured person and have a tender loving care with our children. Adoption would necessary does it, but it depends on the nature of one’s process. God could bless the family as Psalms 127:3 states: “Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward.” Starting a family is too hard, but it will be your happiest moment in their lives.
The government and the religious groups should make a stand against abortion through information campaign & educational programs. Pro-life is the main advocacy or objectives of all the activities here in the Philippines not to influence them through opinion but to preserve what life is. The people should learn the promotion of good health and safety measures in family planning which was also important through sexual education and anti-abortion policy.
Every human being is a person (abortionfacts.com). This is what God gift for us. No matter how reasonable to considerate as ethics, the common thing to get abstinence was conscience. Continuing our life is the main agent to lean on.Abortion is not the way to continue the woman’s life; it is just a ridiculous thing to commit a sin and to commit a crime that does not think of equality of others.
