A friend of mine came to ask me for advice the other day.
She’s pregnant!So,do I know anybody who can ‘get rid of this?’ Because ‘I’m still very young,man,I cant support a kid!’
I looked at her and said ‘yeah,I know many people who can do that’ You should have seen her face light up!
“But I wont hook you up with any!”
“What?”She looked at me in surprise,its like I had told her I wouldnt share a last meal with her.
Before she banged the door to leave,I told her..”Dearie,go back to the basics”
You see,everything you do under the sun has consequences and you should either avoid them,mitigate them,or accept them wholly!
For instance this girl,lets call her Makena.She couldnt have just happened on her condition,she must have ‘eaten arrowroots’ as granny would call it.
Sex is good,its sweet,especially when you are not supposed to be having it.Your parent would say Abstain,Jimmy Gathu Be faithful to one,doctors,use a Condom.Everybody know this,its EVERYWHERE!Those who have gone to school get it in the syllabus,Makena is in Second Year at University,She knows!
But she chose to ignore it,or throes came above her reason.She enjoyed it,I bet,they say candy is sweet without wrappings…I wasnt there,maybe I was cold and lonely somewhere in downtown Nairobi or Meru..
But now,she wants me to join in her woes,by killing!Thats how I view abortion,its MURDER!
She sees it as my responsibility as a friend.
Now she wont talk to me,and I wont back down..how can I call her and say ‘Make,come,lets go kill that bastard’
I’d be damned.Go back to basics and explain (to yourself) how it happened and if there is a choice.
If your car gets involved in an accident.Go back to basics and see where you went wrong,could you have avoided it by not speeding?or checking the brakes?
Go back to basics.
