Life in the womb – Suzette Muscat
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, This Chinese proverb means that a person must begin his or her journey to reach their goal or destination.
The first step of Life begins at conception, to undo what is done, to end the journey and of course not reach the goal of the chance to life, we have to succumb to removing a life that started, if that life began in a woman’s womb, that same life is no other, than that of a human being, to stop that life, means stopping a heartbeat, all this epitomises to terminating a life, no matter how respectful we try to sound, by terminating a life we are murdering an unborn child.
We need to understand that creating a life is a God given privilege that can not be taken for granted.
My heart bleeds for women who would give their right arm, to carry a baby in their womb to have a child of their own, while, on the side of the spectrum there are other mothers, who are rooting for abortion, just because they want choice over their body.
What about those women who miscarry a baby, what about the women who are not even given a chance to be born, just because they are girls? Are the pro-abortion lobby aware and caring for these women, when they frantically crusade in favour of abortion?
A pro abort woman speaks of choice over her body, to handle as she pleases, to a certain extent that can be granted, but what that same woman seems to omit, is the fact that once impregnated, there is another body who needs to be protected, she/he also needs care, ultimately she/he needs to be given a voice, if the baby’s own mother is unaware of this, there are other women and men for that matter, out there, who are willing to give that unborn child a voice, a chance at choice and fundamentally a chance at life.
With the proposed bill, every baby in the womb will be in danger, being destroyed at any moment by its parents or even just by her/his mother.
The irony is that every being, who speaks in favour of abortion was born because her/his mother chose not to condemn her/his chance at life, her/his mother’s choice was life.
A mother’s love knows no boundaries, a mother’s love is something that no one can explain, it is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain.
Therefore, I beseech you to understand the inhumane action of ripping a child from its mother’s womb and killing it, at whatever stage in the journey of gestation.
We are irritated of hearing scary tactics, which try to depict pregnant women of being denied life saving treatment, our maternal mortality rate is one of the best in the world and this, is without resorting to abortion.
Let us not be misled by the proposal of decriminalising abortion, no woman in Malta has ever been sent to prison after having an abortion.
