So the doctor said: 'Ok and what do you want me to do?'
She said: 'I want you to end my pregnancy, and I'm counting on your help with this.'
The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the
lady: 'I think I have a better solution for your problem. It's less dangerous for you too.'
She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.
Then he continued: 'You see, in order for you not to have to take care two
babies at the same time, let's kill the one in your arms.'
This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we're going to kill one of them, it doesn't matter which one it is.'
'There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.'
The lady was horrified and said: 'No doctor! How terrible! It's a crime to
kill a child!'
'I agree', the doctor replied. 'But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.'
The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that's already been born and one that's still in the womb.
The crime is the same!
Some people think that abortion is the best way to get rid of unwanted pregnancy or child. But they never think that they're doing some kind of genocide. Killing of foetus is like killing of a live human being.
I remember, once Mother Teresa appealed to all mothers to give her their kids which they thought was wanted or not in a position to take care of them. Mother Teresa was against abortion.
According to Hindu scripture abortion or killing of the foetus is at par with great sin of committing "Brahmahatya"(killing of a Brahmin) or "Gohatya" (killing of cow).
It has other repercussions too. An unwanted baby, when grow up, instinctively knows that he was not wanted to be born. He become unruly, rogue and anti-social to disgrace his parents.
Its better to use birth control measures to avoid unwanted pregnancy but its not sensible to abort the baby.
