Consider the alternatives to abortion
Abortion can mean different things to different people. For some, abortion means freedom and control over one‘s own body--a personal right. For others, abortion is the moral equivalent of murder and should never be considered as an option, even if the mother’s life is endangered.
Books have been written about abortion and movies and documentaries have been made – but for the woman who is considering abortion and struggling to determine what is right for her and her family, the moral complexities of abortion may be overwhelming.
The fact that millions of women around the world choose abortion in any given year, probably doesn’t help much.
As many of us know, an unplanned pregnancy can happen to any woman.
Whether you’re a teenager, a college student or in your 20’s or 30’s, deciding whether or not to terminate a pregnancy is often a difficult decision.
1. Having and raising the baby yourself, with or without the help of family and friends, or
2. Having the baby and choosing adoption by caring parents
When thinking about your choices, it’s important to get as many facts as possible—and to understand reincarnation and the law of karma. And when you understand the facts and the importance of every soul, you may realize that abortion is not really an option. There are alternatives and an Opportunity for Life.
It can be confusing when you hear someone say that abortion ends a pregnancy –-it sounds sort of vague and generic, because it leaves out the important information. But when you hear that abortion ends the life of a developing human being, then you have a better idea of what’s going on.
When you become pregnant by accident and are afraid that having a baby will force you into staying in a bad relationship, destroy your dreams or ruin your life, it can be pretty overwhelming and difficult to think about what you want to do.
That’s when you need to take time out to clear your head, go into your heart and consider why you were born and what you want to do with your life. And think about why your baby needs the same opportunity for life that you have.
We all need to be born at the right time and in the right place, even though it might not seem to be the right time to a lot of people. That’s why it’s important to know about the soul before you decide how to deal with an unexpected pregnancy.
Whether or not to have an abortion is a difficult decision - one you have to live with for the rest of your life. Before you decide, its important to know about the soul, reincarnation and karma.
