Six thirty in the morning, time to wake up. Half an hour later time to go to school. Seven thirty classes begin. After eight busy hours, from class to class and a lot of work, it is finally time to go home. Then at three it is lunch time, two hours later soccer class. At eight pm soccer class is over and it is homework time. Busy day. We all have busy lives. But when we free our schedules a bit we get time to stop and think.
This is exactly what I did before I started writing. Stop and think. We live in a busy world, full of technology, full of work to do, in need of power, in need of a prosperous economy.
But this day, November 23, I stop and I think: what is going on in the world? There is a need of generosity, a need of conscience, a need of thinking of others, less selfishness and ambition.
What is going on? Since when does taking away a person’s life for another’s well being is acceptable, or reasonable? In no circumstances this is fine. I am thinking about many things, more specific abortion. Abortion is an essentially malevolence act that dangerously violates the dignity of an innocent human being by taking away his or her life. It is not a surgical or medical safe procedure.
It is indispensable to mention that abortion seriously injures the dignity of those innocent babies, which people who support it say they are not human beings, and also indispensable to affirm that people who commit it suffer psychological and moral trauma.
Marginalizing abortion marginalizes the sanctity of human life itself and dehumanizes the members of any society. But if it is so wrong then why is it so accepted? The social acceptance of abortion is one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th and 21st centuries. It is nothing new and the reasons for it can be found rooted in selfishness.
A woman who finds herself pregnant in a bad time, when she can’t take care of the baby because of her life situation, her economic situation, or any other reason, decides to get the pregnancy over with and accede to abortion. A mother decides to kill her baby. This is what happens, she decides to get rid of a baby, take the baby’s life away because she thought it was the right thing to do. But this is not fair, not good, and not acceptable and even if the circumstances seem to make abortion the best choice it is still not reasonable. Means do not justify ends. In the end it is pure selfishness.
Different means have made it look the other way around, like if abortion is the best choice and the best way to make the situation right. They have made it look as if abortion was a solution, as if it were to provide security and freedom. It is not possible that a solution that will bring security and freedom is killing someone, but some women who seem desperate will ignore the fact that abortion is actually taking away a baby’s life and will stick to the idea that it brings freedom and security. The freedom, independence, empowerment and security guaranteed to women by abortion is a lie. Of course not.
Killing a person is not a solution, but it is easier to think it does. It is the easy way out, the coward way out. Women will continue to be attracted to the false of sense security abortion provides, because it is the perfect “solution” to their problems. Abortion kills babies. There is no other way to see it, they say truth is hard to say and even harder to hear but it is what it is. Abortion kills babies, babies who are not strong enough to defend themselves. Why does a mother get the choice of killing the baby or keeping him or her and that baby does not get a vote in deciding whether he or she wants to live?
Unfair isn’t it? I am not “pro life” and I am not “pro choice”, I am just a seven teen year old trying to prove a point. We live in a world that is lacking values and virtues and not much is needed to realize how messed up everything is. All I did was stop and think. There are many other horrible things going on, wars, all the violence that happens all around the world, bullying at schools, kids doing drugs more than ever, families all apart, but what caught my attention the most was the horrible act of taking away an innocent baby’s life. There is much to be done to repair societies.
Solutions are needed, but solutions should never get in the way of human dignity. We live in a world in need of values, in need of love. Those of us who still have a conscience need to stand strong and stand firm for what we believe. We might all have busy lives and things to do, but we have the responsibility of doing something to fix societies. There is a necessity of integral leaders. It is time to stop and think and find solutions to help our world because people are not in the right trail. I am sure that it is never too late, but I am also sure that something has to be done. www. wikipedia. com
