As a Catholic country, it is known that the Maltese people are believed to embrace the Church’s genuine beliefs and culture. While abortion has not yet been adopted in Malta, the idea of allowing abortion to come into place under certain circumstances seems to be growing rapidly.

Now Malta is still the last country standing in the European Union which has not yet allowed abortion. It clearly states in the constitution:

(1) Whosoever, by any food, drink, medicine, or by violence, or by any other means whatsoever, shall cause the miscarriage of any woman with child, whether the woman be consenting or not, shall, on conviction, be liable to imprisonment for a term from 18 months to three years; and
(2) The same punishment shall be awarded against any woman who shall procure her own miscarriage, or who shall have consented to the use of the means by which the miscarriage is procured.

Following di-ve.com’s two week poll, which managed to gather an amount of votes, it shows that while 55% stated that their position is that abortion is to be prohibited in all circumstances, around 32% have stated that they believe that abortion should be legal under certain circumstances; like rape incest and to save the life of the mother.

Among the rest of the votes, 9% agree on having abortion legal under any circumstance and 3% were unsure.

Returning to the fact that Malta, as a Catholic country, still remains the last to not allow abortion on any circumstance, the question which currently burdens many minds is, “How longer till we, as a country, follow the herd?”

It is understandable that the majority of those who voted, 55%, do not agree that Malta should adopt the idea of having abortion legal, however the 32% cannot go unnoticed.

That 32% clearly shows that while many still carry the idea that Life begins at conception, many are adopting the idea that if a child is conceived unwillingly or that the mother is in danger of dying, it has no right to be born. And the decision whether to allow the child to continue to have a beating heart is to be left in the hands of another person and not God.

Questions still remain which challenge every thinking mind. Who gave the right to any human being – who is at the same level of living as an unborn child – to end another life so abruptly? And why isn’t abortion considered murder when the life yet to be born is willingly ended?
