Many persons in this beloved country of ours will always kick against it, even the government made it a criminal offence. Well, I would want it to be legalised, not because I want to promote immorality, but because it will affect our country positively.
In some countries, abortion is legalised and this was not done because they wanted to promote immorality, but it was because they wanted better citizens and balanced population. That's my opinion though, because when persons get the opportunity to have an abortion, a lot of opportunities becomes open to such persons, the opportunity to not become what is not planned for, which is a mother at a certain time, not becoming a destitute when you know you can't feed yourself and then giving birth to a child only to bring it into your world of suffering, the chance to have time for yourself and finish that education, get that masters degree or Doctorate degree, or a bachelor's degree, get that goal or life you really want to achieve and then bring a child to such a well organised world of yours.
When a woman is educated, the whole nation is educated. The closest person to any child is it's mother. There are many girls who has lost the opportunity of a good life and education because of what was never planned for, and that girl would have made a well enlightened citizen of the country, if she had the time for herself.
The population of a country is of great importance, if it is too much, it is a problem, and if it is less, it is also a problem....Nigeria's population is fast increasing by the day and the country is obviously not in a good state at all. The legalisation of abortion can help put a balance to the population in this country, contraceptives are currently in use, but that girl who never had the opportunity to be enlightened, doesn't know about it to the fullest...she only knows about condoms which are not fully reliable. When abortion is legalised, I believe there will be a positive change and growth.
There will be no more hypocrisy by mothers who encourage their daughters to do it in secret, and then shame the act of abortion in the open....husbands do same, sisters, brothers, friends, uncles, Aunts, many people do it in this country, and pretend like they are saints, if it is legalised, there will be no room for discrimination... we'll have the right to decide on what to do with our lives and make the best of it, for our own betterment and our country's betterment.
This is my opinion on abortion and idI like to know yours, if you have any
