Mother's Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March, April, or May...I am certain it is the same feeling globally because the role of a mother in a child's life cannot be over emphasized and that is why global organizations like the United Nations are quite sensitive to the plights of a woman all around the world.

It is in this regard that every girl child must be given a chance to be born, nurtured, educated and considered legible enough to lead her community, state or nation..It is their right just like the boy child. In Africa where i come from, there is so much love for having a male child because they are seen as a strong holder and dominance of the family name but the girl child is reserved to the kitchen and house chores, perhaps, a little chance of education.

The celebration of Mothers should not be a case of thanking every mother for their breastfeeding, clothing and all other roles she has played...but we must sit down and accept the fact that every child must be respected..boy or girl...which means we must rule out abortion from our society, let us give them a right to life..this is a personal advice to every lady that thinks of abortion as a total option from ridicule.

If a girl child is nurtured well and brought up right, she will find it hard to commit abortion because she was fed with love and human kindness when she was growing up...let us love our female children just like the boys...Do we really think we can do without girls in our lives..?
