What is life? Is it just the state of being alive? Do you plant flowers and just leave them be? Is it better to bring a child into this world and subject them to abuse, physically, emotionally, psychologically?
A doctor noted that the child had many bruises on her body. He asked the mother if she beat her child and she said yes.Further medical examination showed the child died of shock due to massive cerebral hemorrhage, internal hemorrhage, multiple hematoma to strong traumatic force and external hemorrhage due to multiple wounds in the different parts of the body.
Do you like seeing children on the streets sniffing their rugby? Do you give to those who come up the jeepneys and wipe your shoes for a few centavos?
Before you say you are pro-life, think hard about what LIFE really is. Because children are being brought into this world day by day, only to suffer for their parents’ inadequacies to rear them and rear them well; who can’t even provide the basics..
Would God be happy that their parents did not plan their family? Would God be mad if they had the mind to prevent this from happening? Not by abortion, but simply PLANNING.
I do not advocate abortion, CERTAINLY NOT! What I want is for people to:
1. be aware that they have a CHOICE and be educated enough to make an INFORMED CHOICE
2. be aware of their rights to have access to family planning information and services
3. be aware that they OWE their child (among others):
a. a right to be born well
b. well-rounded development of his personality to the end that he may become a happy, useful and active member of society.
c. a balanced diet, adequate clothing, sufficient shelter, proper medical attention, and all the basic physical requirements of a healthy and vigorous life.
d. full opportunities for safe and wholesome recreation and activities, individual as well as social, for the wholesome use of his leisure hours.
4. be aware that they are criminally liable if they (among others):
a. abandon the child under such circumstances as to deprive him of the love, care and protection he needs.
b. neglect the child by not giving him the education which the family’s station in life and financial conditions permit.
c. improperly exploit the child by using him, directly or indirectly, such as for purposes of begging and other acts which are inimical to his interest and welfare
d. inflict cruel and unusual punishment upon the child or deliberately subjects him to indignation and other excessive chastisement that embarrass or humiliate him.
I am pro-life – the LIFE that let’s children be children, and allows them to flourish and achieve their full potential by providing them with their needs, supporting their endeavors, sheltering them from harm, and protecting their rights.
