We often wonder why it is that most of our kind gestures are met with terrible reactions or attitudes and even sometimes met with a totally opposite action from what we had intended. This is not new and everybody gets this at some point in their lives.

Jesus in the Bible tells a parable of a servant who owed his master ten thousand talents but when he couldn’t pay, the master ordered to have him, his wife and children, and all his property sold so that the payment could be made.

The servant fell on his knees and begged for patience and mercy to be shown to him. The master was moved with compassion and decided to release him and forget the debt.

This servant, now debt-cleared went on his way jubilating and then met a fellow servant like him who owed him a hundred. He asked, “Ogbeni, what about my money o? Oya, bring it, I need it now.”

The other fell down at his feet, begging, “Please, exercise patience with me. My wife just delivered, my father-in-law is sick, the roof of our house came crashing down last night. Please, bear with me, I will pay.”

The other servant didn’t even listen; he had his fellow servant thrown into prison one time! He didn’t remember that someone else had shown him mercy.

Despite the lesson of this parable and others, we still live in a world where we treat others harshly over matters where mercy could have taken place.

Not quite long, a certain story made rounds on social media. It was about a woman who asked for financial help to be able to treat her son of his sickness. What she needed for treatment was only half a million Naira but too many people had heard of her case and contributed to it so that she got a total of six million Naira.

That same week, another mother reached out to the first woman for help for her own child’s medical bills but the first woman told her bluntly that there was no money to give.

Concerned people who heard of it reached out to the first woman and asked how she was able to spend six million Naira in the same week and she responded that after paying for her son’s medical bills, she had used the rest to buy a house and a car. All in one week! Haba, Madam, fear God.

Now, whether or not this story is true, it still shows that there are people who will never extend the kindness they had received to others. No matter how much we try to twist it, kindness to others go a long way.

The world might be turning to what nature had not intended, but we can individually make things better by taking deliberate steps. This is our collective job!

Is Abortion an Act of Evil Or Is It a better Option?

Abortion is not an act of evil it is a better option

Abortion is a very sensitive subject and many people would rather say nothing on it at all while those who do are usually anti-abortion.

They argue from the line that all life begins at conception and aborting a pregnancy is no different from murdering a person. Well, while everyone has their opinions they should not try to foster their beliefs on someone else.

If abortions were legalized we would have fewer deaths related to botched abortions and women would be able to go to good hospitals to get the best of care. You say killing the fetus is wrong but have you considered the fact that the woman might not be ready to be a mother.

Not all unwanted pregnancies are as a result of ‘sex outside of marriage’, many are as results of rape. Would you advise a girl to keep the pregnancy and give birth to an innocent child that she could end up hating? I read the story of a girl who grew up with her mother always being distant and cold towards her all because she was the result of a gang rape, the poor woman did not even know which of the rapists had fathered her child.

A girl after being rejected by the father of the baby gave birth and burnt the baby alive. Would it not have been better if she had taken the abortion route? Some women have more children than they can ever possibly care for. Some end up as thugs, garage boys. Would not abortion have been a better option?

We have heard reports of newborn babies abandoned either in a heap of rubbish or even more unspeakable places before they could be rescued by passersby. Wouldn’t abortion have been a better option?

Girls who were raped and had children by the insurgents Boko Haram say their children are always been beaten up by victims, One even said every time she looked at her child’s face, she relieved her abuse over and over again. Some women get abortions done when the pregnancy threatens their health and lives.

How many children as an anti-abortionist have you adopted or rescued from terrible conditions?

You judge people for getting abortions but would you in any way contribute to the needs of the child? Unless your every thought and action has been deemed beyond righteous you have no right to shame or condemn a woman for making a better choice, abortion is not a crime it is the right and choice of every woman and absolutely nobody should judge until they have walked in her shoes.
