Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:


arbortion is a crime, i gues that there is a song like that and certainly yes there is. any time you want to abort think of how you would feel if your mother aborted you oryour brother. abortion isnt legal in most countries kenya being one of them but how many of us dont think of the reparations of sinful act before we engage in it. aint we the same people who encourage our friends to abort yet we tend oto forget that the whole of getting pregnant was done out of love. to abortion leads to guiltiness, one of could even cause bareness, it causes death among other serious effects. its for this reason that every responsible individual including the kenyan government,churches,schools citizens and organisation has sensitization on this issue and opted different measures to those who dont want to keep their children counselling perhaps.
