The Great Massacre Continues

Since I last wrote about this great human tragedy in Singapore and India, the killing continues unabated.

In a recent report in the Singapore Straits Times, it was reported that 7,000 girls are aborted EACH DAY in India. While I suspect that this figure may have been exaggerated, because a search on Google has shown varying numbers, one can still safely assume that the true figure is staggering. In comparison, our own figure of only 14,000 a year in Singapore, which covers both sexes, may even appear trivial.

While you are patting yourself on the back, your might as well take some pride that in our highly advanced society, the operations are carried efficiently and safely in clean, modern and comfortable surroundings. No backstreet abortions in our squeaky clean country – you can be sure of that. Just do a search on the internet and take a look for yourself at some of the advertisements for abortion services complete with diagrams and photos and user-friendly explanation. Not only are you assured of GEMS (Going the Extra Mile Service) service, you can even use your Medisave money to offset part of the fee so that you hardly feel the pinch.

So whether you are young or old, no need to wait for the next Romancing Singapore campaign to come around. Just go ahead and do your thing. No need to worry about this irritating thing that may come along. Just pop into one of our many ‘fertility clinics’ and they will help you to get rid of it in a jiffy and nobody need shed a tear.
