Sex and Consequence

2 weeks ago I got a text message from a number not in my cellphone memory. The message goes like this:
ate alam kong pagagalitan mo ko pero m desper8 na talaga. me alam kang hilot? nde pang pilay ha? :-(
I thought this was a joke at first. I asked who she is and she identified herself. Then I asked her if she had her self tested and she said she did, 7 weeks pregnant according to her Ob-Gyn friend. She took a lot of medications yet nothing has happened. This makes terminating the pregnancy her best option. I told her the hilot of my friend is in Laguna and she had her abortion around 94 so I have no way of tracking down the hilot, my friend went to Canada after the abortion. She begged me to ask around because she really can't keep the baby, she took 17 cytotec pills and she hasn't bled at all. One only needs 2 to terminate pregnancy.


To be continued...

everytime a story like this comes up, i really dont know how to react.its a constant battle of religion and practicality. a close friend of mine terminated her pregnancy last year. her reason for doing it is another story. but on a personal note, i cant bear the thought of killing a baby growing inside me. the guilt feeling will surely haunt me for as long a i live.
hay, ka-sad naman fions :(

after all that pills she took, continuing the pregnancy will not be a good idea. I researched that pill, deformity & health issues would be a guarantee if the baby lives. I can't prejudge anyone due to different circumstances & situations we all come across and have but I feel sadness for those who want a child and will hear or read stories like this....FOr those who lost a child and did everything they can to keep them...for those who wanted to have a baby and can't...my heart aches for all of us...
