Halaga ng Buhay

Masasabi kong mapalad akong ipinanganak sa mundong ito nang walang ano mang diperensya sa aking pangangatawan. At lalong mapalad ako dahil hindi kailan man sumagi sa isip ng mama ko na ipalaglag ako dahil alam niya kung gaano kahalaga ang isang buhay.

This is roughly a 2-month old foetus which was mercilessly aborted. I, myself, value life and strongly oppose abortion. We humans are pro-creators of God who has given life to every living being in this universe. And no human has the right to take life by any means, except in very few instances wherein there is no choice but to take it without the intention of aborting life, such as therapeutic abortion, which is approved to be practiced by the Roman Catholic Church.

I could still remember the motto in my Human Ethics Subject in my University: NOT ALL LEGAL ARE MORAL -- NOT ALL MORAL ARE LEGAL.

Here we go again... MORAL vs ETHICAL!

Article II of the 1987 Philippine Constitution says, in part, "Section 12. The State recognizes the sanctity of family life and shall protect and strengthen the family as a basic autonomous social institution. It shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception."

Good thing I was born in a country where abortion is strictly forbidden. Nevertheless, there are some people in this country who discreetly perform abortion which could be very risky for the pregnant ones; mga walang pakundangan baga.
