The case for abortion--500,000 lost lives annually



Each year on this planet, according to the World Health Organization, 10 million children under the age of 12 and 8 million adults die of starvation or related diseases.  Their lives up to the point of death speak to the inhumanity of humanity toward itself—hopelessness, lack of sanitation, diseases, misery, suffering, hunger, lack of water and a host of horrific consequences.
 
Currently, the human race stands at 7.1 billion and gallops toward 10.1 billion by mid century—a scant 38 years from now.  At the same time, 2 .5 to 3.0 billion humans live in water, food and quality of life degradation not known or understood by most citizens of Western countries.
 
Each year, 57 million humans die on this planet from all causes.  At the same time, the third world replaces them with 57 million new babies and adds another 80 million new babies to the human horde now scavenging the Earth for food, water and resources.  We ravage our biosphere at an ever increasing rate of speed.
 
What drives such fecundity madness?  Ancient religions such as the Catholic Church, Islam, Hindus and many others cannot unstick themselves from the 1st and 6th centuries.  The Pope stands against any form of birth control along with Islam and other religions.  Ancient cultures fail to understand their own predicaments.  One look at India’s 1.2 billion people illustrates my point—incredible poverty and misery for countless millions.  Most live in denial even while mass starvation continues all around them.  Example: 1,000 children die every day in India from dysentery, diarrhea and other water borne diseases.
 
(Source: www.populationmedia.org)   Yet, India adds 11 million net gain annually into the population nightmare of their country.
 
Even in the United States, untold millions sanctimoniously promote unlimited birthrates.  Men scream against abortion and strive to make sure women do not possess any choice.  One U.S. senator recently said that God wanted a raped woman to deliver the rapist’s child—so she could not have an abortion.  What an intellectual and religious troglodyte! 
 
Because of lame-brains like that, 46 million women who cannot secure birth control annually—ask for and submit to abortions of their fetuses.
Sally Epstein, a birth control advocate for the past 60 years, spoke about abortion in her famous, “Five hundred thousand lost lives.”
 
“Before me on the north lawn of the United Nations in New York, on a cold, rain-splattered, sodden day in April, 1992, a carpet of 500,000 carnations was strewn like a red, white and pink Oriental carpet, each wilting flower representing a woman or girl who had died because of pregnancy during the past year.  Just as each flower was doomed by cutting its stem at full bloom, the life of a woman, mature or very young, already a mother or for the first time barely pregnant, also died before old age carried her away. Who can imagine the delicate flowers transformed into a heap of 500,000 corpses?
 
“My mind slides from that slippery slope of numbers to individual scenes I can grasp.  I picture a young Pakistani girl, wed in childhood (age 12), who has never seen menstrual blood, expired because the full grown baby cannot be forced through her undeveloped pelvis.  I see a 30 year old woman give birth to her 8th squalling baby.  Massive hemorrhaging begins—she dies.  The baby?  Died of starvation.
 
“Surely, if we can spend billions on stealth bombers that cause death to thousands, we could promote birth control supplies to stem the slaughter of pregnant women around the world.”
 
Epstein related that the same happens to 500,000 women annually.  She asks how women can be controlled by the Pope and the old men of the Vatican.  She asked why and how could they create so much human misery.  What purpose?  What reason? 
 
After speaking to Sally Epstein, I came away with greater understanding of her advocacy of birth control and abortion.  Men cannot understand women’s dilemmas as to pregnancy and birth.  Most men that stand against abortion lack any understanding of women’s victimization by other men.
 
Is every human life sacred?  Is every human life sacred if it is born into starvation, misery and hopelessness?  The answer will always be discovered by each individual person.
 
In the final reality, men do not deserve or possess any power over what women choose.  Abortions have been going on for thousands of years.  Is it moral?  Is it ethical?  Is it right?   Answer: it’s none of your business.  It’s not your call.  Those 46 million women will choose abortion because some man like the Pope or the head of Islam dictated against birth control.
 
Such actions by such men make a reasonable mind—sick.
Western countries need to empower third world women with birth control, education and the ability to choose abortion when they choose it—safely, with hygiene and emotional support.
 
In the end, men have dominated, enslaved and castigated women over the centuries. Islam is perverted and sickening as to how it treats its women. The Catholic Church continues to be out of touch with modern reality.  
 
It’s time that women take charge of their lives, stand up to men and make their choices as they wish.

Bio Wash and gibberellic acid combined can easily grow enough food to feed a hundred billion on the same land that the fertilizer companies are messing up with fertilizer to feed 7 billion.
