Lemme shake the table.
I'm Thinking of Sending A Bill to the National Assembly for consideration and for further approval.
This bill will be about Childbirth Control.
Personally, I know things are hard and difficult in this country and people find it hard to survive on this side of the world.
We live in a jungle-like environment. Our beast-like or lion-like heart within us is roaring/booing /crying for daily survival.
This question comes to mind that what is surviving on?
We are surviving on austere and hostility economy. We are surviving on the epileptic power supply, We survive on our ability and/or inability to cope with our shylock landlord/ tenants as the case may be, we survive on Inflation of foods and food products, we are surviving on, minuscule/miniature (income, wages, and salaries,) and/or crumpy bail-out from Npower Projects, etc.
We have perpetually thrown our predicament behind us and daily dress- up ourselves with pretentious raiment and unctuous Royal Apparel.
What a phony lifestyle!
And like a song by the late Afro-Legend, -" we resorted to Suffering and Smiling lifestyles"
Our survival is a jungle-like survival with all manner of preys and predators co-existence. Like roaring beasts and lions, who walketh about looking/seeking for who to devour (1Peter 5:
I wouldn't want to bother you will much of my rhetoric or my evanescence fugacious epistle, folks...
permit me to ossify and crystalize on this debatable points...
Mas/Sirs, Since we all know that we live in a critical and precarious environment where you were all forced to improvise for government inability to adequately provide our basic necessities. Folks, this big question comes to mind:/
1. Do we care enough for our child(ren) as we ought to?
2. That since we have understood the socio-economic situation of our society, that, is it conscientiously justifiable to keep producing more kids for society and also allow them to swim through the river of hostility and austerity that we swam through?
3. And that why can't we adopt marriage- without-children strategy like the western world has done to reduce or control childbirth.
Finally, why can't the government, various institutions, and individuals advocate for celibacy as another alternative to control childbirth?
We know that an average African has this sense of Ownership. (That is, I want to have my child and own them so that I can be cared for in my old age....)This was the mentality we inherited from our ancestors and since there are ages and times have passed, I wondering if this normative can be changed to achieve a better society you and I can be proud of...
In conclusion, we need to keep asking ourselves these salient questions;/
That since we are all fixative in continue in the path of our ancient landmark and /or our native normative, we need to know that our intention to get married or to have many more children comes with adequate and robust responsibilities if we are to be fair to these our unborn generation. Knowing fully well that the journey we were being made to embark on by our parents was daunting and stressful.
so, if we don't want to handover such precarious journey for them to keep on languishing in excruciating pain and struggles, how adequate have we prepared for them to live a safe and better environment?
Or are bringing them up. as only a tool to extort or /and exploit In our old age...
Food for thought...

I have always held the opinion, that child bearing is one of the most....no, the most self-centered act of humans.
Everybody wants to have a child of their own. It's so bleeped up and crazy. Whether rich or poor, having children is selfish. There's enough hardship and uncertainty in the world to go round.
If only the ability to chose whether to be, on not to be was given to us.
