Abortion or Otherwise

By: Michelle Anne Jones

Abortion suggests a lot of negative energies to a lot of different people. So why donít we tackle the different other possibilities that can prevent women from resorting to abortion. So, what are the other options?

First, donít have sex. But thatís really a stupid advice, right? Sex is a basic human need. Unless you are a nun, you not having sex is actually quite unbearableóif not, impossible. So letís just jump directly to the next option. And that, my friend, is the condom.

Condoms are the most popular tool for birth control. Other couples do not like using condoms becauseólet me paraphrase itóit feels weird and foreign/alien. You can laugh all you want, but Iíve heard accounts like that. These perspectives are usually from ignorant (I donít mean this in a sarcastic way) folks who are not fortunate enough to be reached by sex education.

There are also other options other than the condom though. There is this one called the calendar method, but it is usually only effective if the woman has a regular monthly period. The method is simple. The couple can have sex on the days when the woman is not fertile. Of course, that depends on when the menstruation regularly occurs. This is not very effective though because according to the experts, there is still a chance of pregnancy if the sex is unprotected.

So letís proceed to a surer methodóvasectomy. This way, you wonít get pregnant ever again. For me, this is the best way to prevent abortion, provided the man involved is not a masochist pig with a ballooning ego. If thatís the case, women might want to take the move and use birth control pills instead.

Now, a lot of women also use birth control pills. However, I myself wonít use this stuff due to certain side effects the pills can bring to the user. Recurring headaches, mood swings, and irritability are just few of the said side effects. I donít know about you, but I donít want to put additional havoc to my already stressful life.

Any of the methods above is way better than abortion. Although abortion is also considered as a form of birth control, I believe the said methods are less dangerous. At least if you donít get pregnant, you donít have to wrestle with your conscience or emotions on whether to abort your child or to keep itónot to mention the physical risks. Precaution is better than hasty action. Am I right?

Unfortunately, if you did any, if not, all the methods mentioned above and you still managed to get pregnant, you really need to wrestle with your conscience and moral fiber (that moral fiber expression is originally from Dumbledore) if itís a go or a no with abortion. Actually, thereís one more option. That is adoption. You can give up the child for adoption after childbirth. If you think carrying the child for nine months is still too much, then itís abortion for you. It all comes down to your choice anyway.
