With a few million dollars in their bank accounts, you can trust the Nigerian players to behave like demi-gods; whereas some sports personalities are earning upwards of a billion dollars but have never tried to bring the roof down on the nation. The coach should look to develop national talents and 4get those rubbing false shoulders with the president.

Is he also good in every other aspect to a fault? It takes two to tango: it's all about give and take and not take, take and take.

Dear Gibson, you are a serious advocate. But look at it this way. Here is the World making a big deal about human rights. Is it simply about men's rights or human rights? If is human rights it includes women! If so, I submit that every human being has the right to own their own body. The argument against abortion seems to deny this basic premise of universal human right for the female gender. The woman has absolute right over her own body, including what grows or exists inside her body and whether to carry it to full gestation or not.



You are right to a limited extent. The woman being a God-made mother means that society has a right to expect her not to kill those children God has given her. If she doesn't want them then it is better not to have unprotected sex or better still abstain from it.

My dear Danpatrick, your argument is a typical masculine overlordship against women. Do you agree that a woman has the right to decide what she can and can't do with her body? Does the foetus not grow or exist inside a woman's body? Thus, has she no right to decide whether the foetus remains in her body? If so, she has supremacy over her body and whatever exists therein.
The important US Supreme Court decision in Roe v Wade to some extent supported that view when it ruled that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy came under the freedom of personal choice in family matters and was protected by the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution. Therefore it is unethical to ban abortion because doing so denies freedom of choice to women and forces 'the unwilling to bear the unwanted'.


@ brendivas, well said.

@ brendivas & Rosemerry,

Regardless of the legal decision in Roe v Wade a person should accept the consequences of risks that she knowingly and willingly takes. A woman who willingly has sexual intercourse knows that she takes the risk of bringing a foetus/moral person into existence. Therefore a woman who becomes pregnant should accept the pregnancy as the consequence of taking the risk involved in sexual intercourse. That woman has a duty of care to the foetus/moral person she has willingly brought about through sex and should allow the resulting foetus/moral person to be born. Therefore she should not abort the foetus/moral person.

I say the defenceless child has most right follwed by that of the husband and the woman last

@ livingday, this position of yours is typical of man. Consider this contrary view: 1.Nearly all abortions take place in the first trimester, when a fetus cannot exist independent of the mother. As it is attached by the placenta and umbilical cord, its health is dependent on her health, and cannot be regarded as a separate entity as it cannot exist outside her womb. So, it has no independent existence as a human being to talk about 'rights'

@ jennypriceson, Since life begins at conception, abortion is akin to murder as it is the act of taking human life. Abortion is in direct defiance of the commonly accepted idea of the sanctity of human life

@ tundamartin, I refer to my comments above about the foetus not being human as it is entirely dependent on the woman's life. However consider this : The concept of personhood is different from the concept of human life. Human life occurs at conception, but fertilized eggs used for in vitro fertilization are also human lives and those not implanted are routinely thrown away. Is this murder, and if not, then how is abortion murder?

@jennypriceson,

On the basis of natural law written word of God, human life begins when the woman's egg is fertilised by a male sperm.
From that moment a unique life begins, independent of the life of the mother and father. The features that distinguish us from our parents - the colour of our eyes, the shape of our face - are all laid down in the genetic code that comes into existence then.
Each new life that begins at this point is not a potential human being but a human being with potential.On this basis I think abortion is an act of murder.


@ Allen-jones,

I think you have taken a thorougly religious stand but even the various faiths accept that if a foetus is seriously abnormal or that the child will be born seriously disabled that abortion would be permissible in this circumstance. Is that not life they are aborting regardless of presumed handicap?

The other point in this debate is that of gender equality. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother. Women need free access to abortion in order to achieve full political, social, and economic equality with me. Women need the right to abortion in order to have the same freedoms as men. Women need the right to abortion to have full rights over their own bodies (including the right to decide whether or not to carry a foetus to birth) - without these rights they do not have the same moral status as men


@ Rosemerry,

 I think most people will agree that human beings should take responsibility for the consequences of their actions.
Thus  abortion is wrong where the mother willingly had sex, not because of the moral status of the foetus but because of the responsibilities of the mother. Look at it this way, if you voluntarily act in a way that brings about the existence of a person or a foetus, then you have a responsibility to maintain the life of that person or foetus. Therefore, abortion is wrong where the mother had sex of her own free will. Sure a woman has the right to choose whether or not to become pregnant. She makes that choice before engaging in sex. To make that 'choice' after a pregnancy is underway, merely as a matter of birth control, is an immoral act.

Virgin ma azz! Who in the world is going to believe this kind of story? Well,it's only in Africa that poverty is  killing everybody that can accept this hoax! Why didn't Virgin Mary show herself in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait?! It only in Africa these miraculous things always happen...Africa I bow oooo! Cool


Don't mind the backward primitives!


As if they can distinguish Mary from Alice if they see her. The white man that introduced this religion to Africa never carried it on his shoulder nor is he shouting from the roof-tops like helpless starving Africans! Mary didn't show herself in Isreal yet but chose Ivory Coast, this war torn country on the verge of bankruptcy with begging bow. Some extreme poverty is life threatening and can drive a man crazy. I think that is what is happening there.

Don't mind the ignorant natives. They never saw their ancestors on the face of the moon or stars yet preferred to gaze into sun to see Adam and Eve and Mary with Jesus waving at them.

What the heck wrong with Edo girls that they always fall prey for these human traffikers? Is it greed or what? Despite this sad story coming from Italy, you wont be surprised to learn that many more girls are willing to go 'abroad' instead of looking for Nigerian Mr Right and settle down.
WAT DID U KNW!? BLA BLA BLA, IS IT ONLY EDO GALS THAT PROTITUTE IN ITALY? DNT JST TALK ANYHOW DEAR, U DNT KNW THE FACT!

Why are you taking it so personal? Call a spade a spade instead of this confused noise you are making. According to the documentary majority of Nigerian prostitutes in Italy are from Edo. Don't insult commentators but rather blame the producers of the film and the greed that led these girls astray.

Very interesting piece @ livingday. But what are the red flags women should be looking out for in dating men?

abi?

OMG!! This post very much sounds like a man talking!!  ABOUT himself as usual......Men are worse in my experience at giving false impressions at the start to get what they want.  I've had experience with everything stated here. Why am I on my own?  YES I get lonely sometimes but it's men that are secretive especially with their mobile phones and maybe you don't know where she lives because she doesn't trust you enough yet to give you her address OR Maybe she has been bullied or abused in the past! There could be all sorts of reasons.....am not saying anymore on this post @ livingday because it's complete and utter BULL!!

Loneliness : What is wrong with having few friends? Unless you are an extrovert u will not necessarily want a crowd-puller for a serious relation. I find nothing wrong with introverted person who makes good g/f or b/f.

Loneliness may be individual's choice of lifestyle. The real red flags are 'aggression, rebounding and evasiveness'

Well said @ brendivas and dukkieson.

Interesting and well researched topic @ livingday.

Aggression is way out and should be avoided at all cost, be it from man or woman.

Not everybody is an extrovert. Some are by nature loners but do make passionate lovers if you win their love and trust.

Playing the field? You don't expect her to say I do on the first date, do you? Playing the field is okay.

Love on the rebound? This is a bit trickish and delicate to handle - give it time

Evasiveness - this belongs to the dark soul and two-timing nature of both man and woman

Wonderful summation @ tarakhanali

Very true

Sex affects their brains and heart differently.  See how most men have to go sleep right after sex.

You have a serious point there. But why is it so that men go to sleep soon after sex? Is it because of expended energy or bliss?

A combination of both. Women keep awake to luxuriate in the afterglow.

Correct, tara!
