Do it Yourself Abortion

Perhaps having a safe abortion in a clinic is better than suffering death from infection of a do-it-yourself abortion, but any abortion is worse than having an unwanted baby.

STOP and try to think clearly. An abortion is seldom the best choice.

This is the moment when every girl or woman needs to try hard to put away her confusion, embarrassment, and fear…and look at “every” option. Now is the time to consider making some other person happy.

There are many women who suffer the loss of a child through miscarriage, medically required abortion or still-birth and now can now never give birth to a child of their own. They would love to have a baby; perhaps yours.

This is the time to at least try to think of the rights of un-born child. Be brave and talk to a priest, doctor, or friend and seek advice on how you can save your baby and make another human happy.

Even during a crisis God knows the suffering a person is enduring and will give you guidance…if only you ask. You will make Him happy if you protect this life… your baby.

Probably most women and girls who try the “do-it-yourself” abortion do it because of religious and social restrictions that make a safe abortion in a hospital a criminal offence.

Another reason so many people, especially younger girls, try the “do-it-yourself” abortion (or throw the newborn into a trash can)…is because of embarrassment. They are ashamed to face their parents and friends. This is another example of how important Effective Sex-Ed is.

Women and children all over the world resort to cruel, painful, dangerous “do-it-yourself” abortions because of illogical social religious restrictions. There is probably no city or village in America that doesn’t have an underground network of names and addresses of the “witch-craft” old women who can give you an herb or pill or help you with a crude, unsafe abortion. While this might normally be better than awful advice from a friend who says, “Just carefully insert the smooth end of a coat hanger until you feel it happen.” it is still very dangerous.

This is the time to try hard to think of logical alternatives.

In Mexico, officials estimate that 1500 women die each year from “do-it-yourself” abortions. Abortion is a criminal offence in Mexico). Yet it is estimated that 850,000 illegal abortions are still performed every year. In Mexico 96% of the population are Christians and of these 92% are Catholics.

Laws and religious restrictions against abortions naturally hurt the poorer and less educated more than the affluent people.

Those who can afford the expense can easier find a doctor to perform a safe illegal abortion for the right fee in most any city…anywhere in the world.

It is very customary for the more affluent to send their daughters, girlfriends or wives quickly to another country (on a vacation) to get an abortion, so that families and friends “never know”.

Effective Sex-Ed can teach all people, especially girls, how to avoid a situation that requires an abortion by knowing how to avoid pregnancy. This is the logical answer. Silly, illogical, man-made religious doctrine that condemns masturbation, condom use and birth control…strongly encourages abortions.

Everyone of every age (even very young children) have strong sexual desires and will find ways to satisfy these desires. They should. This is God’s Plan. God created us humans. We humans are taught that God is Perfect. If we believe what we preach, then how can an honest and intelligent person ever condemn masturbation. Sexual intercourse is ignorant sex for children. Masturbation is sex and is clean and safe…and is the perfect alternative to sexual intercourse.

The strongest desire humans have is to satisfy hunger and thirst. The second strongest desire every human has is a need for sexual satisfaction. This is human nature. It is in our genes and DNA. No one can argue with human nature. Wake up Christian brothers and sisters. Be logical. Few things in life are perfect, but logical intelligent adults have a responsibility to at least accept the best of the bad things. Allow fellow humans, especially children, logical alternatives.

If you refuse to make masturbation a ‘house hold word’, at least show love and teach girls to have enough self-confidence to just admit to family, friends, and the world that they are pregnant…and then cope with the embarrassment as they decide the best solution for their individual situation.

No coat hanger, no magic herbs,
no illogical advice from friends,
no visits to old women in dark alleys,
no “do-it-yourself” abortion.

Effective Sex Education “yes”
Condoms “yes”
Self-abortion “no”
Adoption “yes” “yes” “yes”
Clinic-abortion “last choice”

Clinic-abortion “yes”
Self-abortion “no”

Most important…consider ADOPTION.
