I too want to see the oUTSIDe wORLd

03 Dec

“I want to tell you something……..I am really very tensed……….I missed my periods this month…….I hope I am not pregnant!”, this is what a very close married friend of mine told me a few days ago. This is not too surprising because many married women react in a similar way when they discover that they are pregnant even after using protection regularly. Of course all youngsters especially with most couple working in today’s given scenario, they would want to plan as to when to start a family which is fair enough. But unplanned pregnancies are not a new concept! It is very much possible because no matter what, no condom gives 100% protection.

Well, way back in school when I was in my 12th standard, we kept having workshops and sessions on various aspects which would help us mature and face the world as we were no longer going to be in school and many of us planned to go to different cities to pursue our further studies (me being 1 amongst them). One fine day we have a group called the “Anti-abortion team” who came for a session to our school. Well we were taken to our auditorium which was the usual place for all the workshops and sessions we had.  The session began with a video which went on for almost 30 minutes…And the video showed us the different stages when pregnancies are terminated and what are the techniques used……..Just a little information because I am sure many of us are not aware of the various ways an abortion is carried out.

1) Pregnancy is divided into 3 phases called the trimesters. In the first trimester, there is a capsule/tablet which is suggested, because fetus is yet not taken its form….And the fetus just flows out in the form of blood in 48 hours.

2) In the second trimester the fetus starts developing and takes its form……In this case the doctor injects s concoction of Epsom salt and acid(i am not sure with the name of the acid) and the fetus is literary burnt and then it is operated out of the womb.

3) The 3rd trimester is the most dangerous and can be even fatal in many cases or leaving the woman inconceivable. A pair of scissors is inserted into woman’s cervix, through the vagina, into the uterus and the fetus which is almost formed into a baby, is chopped like one would chop clothes. Its head is chopped and then hands and legs, the baby is in appalling pain. The other technique used during the third trimester is by using vacuums which is again inserted into the cervix and like the a vacuum cleaner sucks dust, it rips off the baby’s head, and the remaining body and the pregnancy is terminated.

I dint not know that it was so gruesome……… and painful for the baby. After watching that video I decided that I will at lease try and resist my friends from going for an abortion unless it is a live or die situation.


1)Majority of the people believe that abortion is illegal in India, but in special circumstances when the woman doesn’t really have a choice abortion is allowed.

2)The rules with regard to when abortion is legal or not are under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act and it also provides for special situations in which a woman has the right to have an abortion for her own peace of mind, like when she was raped.

3) In some circumstances, causing a miscarriage or aborting the child is an offense under criminal law. If a registered medical practitioner does an abortion according to all the conditions given under the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act then the abortion is legal. However if a person has caused a miscarriage or abortion, but it was not done in good faith to save the life of the woman, then this act is punishable under law

babyBut with the western influence that we are under and in these developing times, who cares what the law has to say……….It is our sole purpose to lead a so called normal and pretentious life.

Well the unborn baby is a living being who has the right to live, not a cancerous growth or decayed tooth that needs to be extracted from the body and thrown out. It has the right to live and see the world outside the womb……….Well agian is it morally right to terminate a pregnancy or not is still a unreciprocated question…………

    I truly agree that abortion should be aborted every where. What has the baby done wrong to deserve death? I mean, firstly its the adults who indulge in such sexual activities leading to pregnancy (ofcourse there are some who really want to have a baby), but couples (not married) dont even think about the circumstances before indulging themselves in such activities, as they have this “option” of pills and other methods of getting an abortion. Once that is fully banned, then and then only, everyone will take utmost care not to get involved in pre-marital sexual activities, and take more care even after marriage to plan their family and not just randomly think that we will take care of the baby part later on, if abortion is required we would think about it later, lets enjoy now. That thought is the worst of all !!! But alas, nothing can be done unless and until, each individual thinks and acts on their own self guilt.

    Your post has almost made me a member of the anti-abortion team. I never knew that the baby has to bear so much pain. The third trimester abortion was gruesome to say the least. Your little information was really useful. I did not know about it. Thanks a lot 🙂

    Well well val agreed to the point you make sweets but this is just one side of the coin let me put forth a question to all

    Who is doing what for the number of unwanted babies born or rather abandoned by the parents and if not do we know the pathetic state in which they are raised which is no different to the cattle they themselves raise
