Scenario no. 1: A few days old baby is found in a wooden box at a street corner, dehydrated and barely alive. The baby is accidentally found by a Good Samaritan who calls the police. The baby is then taken to hospital, put in an incubator. Name: Unknown Unknown. DOB: Unknown. Medical records: a question mark. Now, when she makes it out of the hospital, she’ll either be taken by a foster family (preferably a nice and loving one), or she’ll be put through the system of institutional care; orphanages, foster homes, etc… oh, and somebody please pick a name for her.
Scenario no. 2: She’s pregnant. A by-product of a forbidden love or an illicit relationship. She can’t have the baby. It will be a constant episode of public disgrace. She aborts early. Case closed.
Scenario no. 3: she’s pregnant. A by-product of a forbidden love or an illicit relationship. She can’t have the baby, for the same above-said reasons. But she can’t muster the determination to abort. When the male-dominated family circle finds out from the bulge in her abdomen, a little arrangement is made and the problem is taken care of for good. The state won’t object much; the state is usually sympathetic.
Scenario no. 4: she’s pregnant. A by-product of the same above-said relationship. She can’t have the baby for the same above-mentioned reasons. But abortion for her is ruled out. The males-dominant family circle finds out soon but they’re sympathetic and understanding. A healthy baby is born and registered. The mother goes to jail for committing adultery. The biological father may not be ‘man’ enough to face the music and show up. So the family brings the baby up on there own, but public disgrace is the inseparable companion of the family and the baby girl and the mother for years to come.
Which one of the above-mentioned fucked-up scenarios is easier to live through for all parties involved?
