Halihali ʻia ka huaale lāʻau pā ma ka leka

na Laiana Wong

Synopsis: A pilot program involving four states, including Hawaiʻi, that offers abortion approval by teleconference with a doctor has invited protest. Is this about abortion rights or abortion procedures?

Aloha mai kākou. Eia aʻe kahi mea hou ke hiki maila i o kākou nei, ʻo ia hoʻi, ka halihali ʻia mai o ka lāʻau pā ma o ka leka. He polokalamu pekelala kūikawā ia (ma lalo o ka mana o ka ʻOihana Lāʻau me ka Meaʻai) e hoʻāʻo nei i ka pono a me ka ʻole o kēia hana, he hana e pono ai nā wāhine e manaʻo nei e hoʻopau i ko lākou hāpai ʻana. I kēia mau lā ma Maui a me Oʻahu, ua hiki nō i ke kauka ke kuhikuhi aku i ka lāʻau e pono ai ia hana. A hiki nō hoʻi ke hana ʻia me ka hālāwai ʻole aku me ka wahine he alo a he alo. He koina ia ʻano hālāwai ʻana ma mua, eia nō naʻe ia ke hana ʻia nei ma o ke kelewikiō ʻana i kēia manawa. Inā ʻaʻole i piha he 10 pule o ka hāpai ʻana, ua hiki nō i ka wahine ke ʻoka aku i nā lāʻau ma hope o ia hālāwai kelewikiō ʻana, a ʻaʻohe nō a he wā, e hōʻea mai nō ia i ka pahu leka.

He ʻelua lāʻau e pono ai kēia ʻano hoʻopā ʻana, ʻo ka mifeprex a me ka misoprostol, he mau huaale ia. Ma hope o ka ʻai ʻana i ia mau ʻano huaale ʻelua, ʻo ka hoʻomaka nō ia o ka hana, a ma hope o ʻekolu hola a hiki aku paha i ka ʻewalu, pau loa nō ka hāpai ʻana o ka wahine. Wahi a ke kauka Ghazaleh Moayedi o ke Kulanui o Hawaiʻi, kekahi kauka e hana nei ma lalo o kēia polokalamu, ua ʻano like ia hana me ka hoʻopoholo ʻana a hāʻule ka ʻaluʻalu. ʻōlelo maila kēlā he hana ia e lawelawe ʻia nei e nā wāhine i kēia manawa koe wale nō ʻaʻole e koikoi ʻia ko lākou ʻai ʻana i ka huaale i mua o ke alo o ke kauka e like me ma mua.

Aia nō kekahi poʻe e kūʻē nei i kēia polokalamu. Ke hopohopo nei lākou o kupu mai auaneʻi kahi mau kuʻia e pilikia ai nā wāhine. ʻO au naʻe, ke hoʻohuoi nei i ke kumu o kēia kūʻē ʻana. Maliʻa, he kūʻē ia i ke kuleana o ka wahine e koho ai i kēia ʻano hana. Eia naʻe ka mea ʻāpiki, ʻoiai ʻo au kekahi e kākoʻo nei i ia kuleana o ka wahine e koho ai no kona pono iho, ke hopohopo nei hoʻi i ka halihali ʻia o kēia mau huaale ma o ka leka. Maliʻa o kiʻi mai kahi keiki a ʻai, a i ʻole ia, e lilo aku paha i ka ʻaihue. ʻAʻole naʻe e hihi. He nīnau ia no ke ʻano o ka halihali ʻana. He nīnau ʻokoʻa ko ka ʻai ʻana.

I ka wā kahiko, wahi a Pukui, Haertig, a me Lee ma kā lākou puke “Nānā i ke Kumu”, he hoʻohana ʻia nō kēia lāʻau hoʻopā ʻaluʻalu i ka wā kahiko. Ua ʻike ʻia i loko o nā ʻohana aliʻi inā ua haʻahaʻa loa ke kūlana o kekahi o nā mākua. Eia hou, ua ʻike ʻia ka manaʻo o ka poʻe kahiko he pono ka hoʻokōwā ʻana i ka hānau keiki hou a ikaika mai ke keiki e ola nei. A no laila, aia nō kekahi mau hana i lawelawe ʻia i ia wā. ʻO ka ʻapu hoʻopā kekahi i hana ʻia i emi mai ai ka nui loa o ka hānau ʻana. Aia nō hoʻi ka hoene a ʻo ka hoʻō ʻana i nā lau ʻawa i loko o ke kohe kekahi mea e hoʻopoholo ai i ka ʻaluʻalu. Eia hou, i kekahi manawa, he ʻōmilomilo ka hana, ʻo ia hoʻi ka hoʻō ʻana i kahi lāʻau ʻoi i loko o ke kohe.

He mau hana ia na ko kākou mau kūpuna i lawelawe ai, no laila, ʻaʻohe kumu e kūʻēʻē ai. ʻO ka halihali ‘ia o kēia ʻano lāʻau ma o ka leka; e akahana aku nō kākou.
