TT: The Hindu argument against abortion
A foreign based pro-abortion group over the past year has set-up shop in the nation and begun a lobby to make abortion a legal alternative. The aspiring activities of this group have to be deemed as successful to date as they have managed to put abortion in significant quarters of the national agenda. The traditional defender against these pro-abortionists in the Western Hemisphere over the decades has been the Roman Catholic Church. This remains so today and indeed so in Trinidad and Tobago on this latest assault. This is not to say that other religious traditions support abortion. Indeed the reverse is true, as all major faiths abhor abortion. Despite this aspiration of the pro-abortion group the Inter Religious Organisation has yet to make a bold public declaration on the position. Abortion can be defined as the deliberate termination of pregnancy. Selective sex determination and dowry in an India cultural context, the French abortion pill, stem cell research and cloning issues have made Hindu scholars, theologians, and activists over the years develop a well defined Hindu response to abortion.Read the rest.
I wonder if Caribbeanites are aware of the true purpose of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood?
Sanger created this program in 1939, after the organization changed its name from the American Birth Control League (ABCL) to the Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA).1Also,
The aim of the program was to restrictâmany believe exterminateâthe black population. Under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan.
Margaret Sanger aligned herself with the eugenicists whose ideology prevailed in the early 20th century. Eugenicists strongly espoused racial supremacy and “purity,” particularly of the “Aryan” race. Eugenicists hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the race by encouraging the “fit” to reproduce and the “unfit” to restrict their reproduction. They sought to contain the “inferior” races through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion.
Part of Sanger's strategy was to enlist Black doctors and ministers who would enthusiastically support her Eugenics policies, and act as liaisons between the Planned Parenthood Federation and the Black communities. At one point in her letters, she worries that more sinister intentions might be discerned in her "Demonstration Project."Is abortion really a woman's health matter or does it pertain to genocide and the decline of Western civilization?
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of the more rebellious members."
