Pro-better Life, Better Choice by MaziSpartan: 2:31am On Aug 02, 2022
The world is burning with a heated argument at the moment. This has absolutely nothing to do with the titanic recession countries are facing now, even with economists projecting that it’s until 2023 before we experience any major hit. Also, it’s not even about the war in Ukraine which by now seems to have bitten more than the interest of the world can chew. Fingers are now sore from writing, voices cracked, opinions vented, threats issued, measures taken, theories conspired and in the midst of all these, lives and the whole point of the war (if armed conflicts ever had one) have been lost. The world has moved on and it is no surprise; if people could be thinking of how to invade and take over other people’s homes just a couple of months after a pandemic threatened to wipe out the human race. Then, it shouldn’t shock anyone that thousands of lives have been directly or indirectly traumatized forever and people have already moved on.

As a Nigerian, I would naturally wish that the argument was about our 2023 presidential election, which looks every day like the last stand of the masses, where the metaphoric “go big or go home” may turn into the reality of the Nigerian state. The Giant of Africa, as we are vainly called, is like a ship without a captain and is now on the verge of sinking. However, its high-ranked officers are plotting how to seize control and maintain the status quo instead of employing the best hands to fix the damage causing the ship to sink. Recently, in a rather sad turn of events, the two biggest parties in the country publicly disgraced democracy in the name of party primaries and produced candidates that according to Bloomberg, have a history of graft allegations, with one of them challenged by the US government to have laundered the proceeds of heroin trafficking. As sensitive as this topic is to the existence of the most populous black nation on earth, it is still not what the world argument is about.

The world right now is locked in an argument between pro-life and pro-choice. This is a significant and sensitive topic if you do not have a lot of institutionalized killings, corruption, dysfunctional democracy, state-sponsored terrorism, hunger, and war to talk about.
Still, this piece does not downplay the importance of this ongoing argument. If anything, it highlights how an argument in the year 2022 should be —people making their points publicly and disagreeing civilly without fear of physical reprisal attacks or institutionalized bullying and intimidation by loosely veiled government proxies— but sadly, this is not the reality for most of us. The debate as to whether the unborn fetus should be regarded as a child, or whether or not it should be accorded constitutional rights of the mother is an argument as important as why foreign governments still allow unrepentant political thieves to hideaway in their countries with another country’s stolen public funds.
