Social Issue: Inherent Contradiction

From: Arati

Subject: Social Issue: Inherent Contradiction



                              ~ ABORTION ~

Our job as Ananda Margiis is to keep abreast of all the issues of the
day and formulate our stand based on dharma. Ours is not the voice of
any political party, of any church, of any group agenda, of any business
enterprise, or any lobbyist agency. Our stand is that of Lord Shrii
Shrii Anandamurti ji.

Thus on each and every current social trend and issue of debate, we are
to formulate our view based on His teaching. We are to overlook who is
saying what and instead delve into the very heart of the matter and
understand that issue for what it is-- and then give a response based on
the golden teachings of AM.

That is our duty and that is how the society will grow in a dharmic way,
by His grace.

                    OUR STAND ON ABORTION

By now the point is quite clear: Over the months and years, numerous
letters have clearly shown how abortion is totally against human dharma
and against Ananda Marga.

We respect the inherent and God-given rights of each and every being in
this universe. And when that unborn fetus is a living, breathing entity,
then naturally we are to respect its right to come into form and take
birth on this earth. That unborn soul also has its dharma to become
great. And as we all know, without a human body, a soul cannot progress
on the path of spirituality.  Even the devas must take birth in order to
advance and contribute something lasting.

Baba has expressed all of the above in His various discourses and
teachings, including Senior Acarya Diary.

So human birth is something sacred and not to be denied to anyone--
including that unborn fetus. That is Baba's divine stand that we should
honor and preach.


Those so-called pro-choicers, or proponents of the so-called right to an
abortion, make all sorts of lame claims.

They say that a woman's body is her own and she can do with it what she
likes, yet as we all know that is false as each and every thing in this
universe is the property of Parama Purusa and it must be treated
according to His will.

They say that an unborn fetus is not yet a human being-- it is not
developed and not alive. They say it only comes to be alive once it
emerges from the mother's womb. That is another of their false claims.
And that is what is going to be addressed here.

As we know, that living being in the form of the unborn fetus thinks,
eats, sleeps, and breathes while inside the mother's womb. It is totally
alive. And here is proof of the hypocrisy of abortion.

Medical science has proven that if a baby emerges from the womb
prematurely, say at 22 weeks or so, then doctors and medical
professionals are capable of keeping that human baby alive. Although
that premature babe only weighs one pound and is very small, when it is
put in an incubator and given life-support mechanisms in the form of
oxygen and nutrition, then that baby can not only survive but grow into
a healthy, fully-developed human being.

Yet side by side, in their full-blown hypocrisy, certain abortion
specialists are aborting babies at 24 weeks-- two weeks after premature
babies are being born and surviving. And those medical associates are
laying claim that since the baby is not born it is not alive and
therefore it can be aborted. This is the sheer hypocrisy about the issue
of abortion.

On the one side medical science is clearly showing that a 22-week old
baby can emerge from the womb as a living, breathing entity and grow
into a healthy human being, and on the other side medical staffers are
aborting unborn babies at 24 weeks and giving the false logic that the
baby is not yet alive as it has not been born.

In that case, who can believe or have any faith on those abortion
agencies-- whose only aim is to justify their faulty stand and make
money by taking the life away from unborn souls.

Of course, no baby at any stage should be aborted-- since as soon as the
egg is fertilised then human life starts, at that very instant. That is
Baba's clear-cut guideline.

But as clear proof of the hypocrisy of abortion, doctors are saving 22
week old new borns, and side by side aborting 24 week old fetuses.

                 WE MUST STAND FOR DHARMA

For society to grow, for humanity to awaken from its slumber, the word
of dharma must vibrate throughout our human culture. So long as it does
not, humanity will remain as a mere shadow of what it can be.

So on this issue of abortion our stand must be clear and it must be
heard, and we must not worry if our stand is similar to certain
right-wing church activists, nor should we be concerned if our stand is
opposed to so-called progressives. Our only aim is that our stand should
be consonant with dharma.

Hence on the issue of abortion our view is quite clear: Abortions are
anti-dharmic measures that rob a living, breathing unborn fetus of its

So no matter the social circumstances, whether a teen becomes pregnant
or whether it happens to a nun, or whatever the case may be, in no way,
shape or form are we ever to condone the killing of that defenseless,
helpless human babe. It too has a God-given right to live.

                      BABA'S BLESSING

Baba says, "Modern, educated people must be liberated from all sources
of dogma and petty isms. They should reject the worn out shackles of the
past and welcome the new, crimson dawn with an open mind. This will
prepare the way for all-round success in human life, and the attainment
of the highest fulfillment." (PNS-16)

"A'ma'r sakal dukher ma'jhe ele tumi dukhaharan'..." (PS 1421)


 O' Baba, You are Dukhaharan'. I was surrounded by sorrows & suffering;
I was in big problem; my life was unbearable. I was completely
miserable. But now, by Your grace, to save me, You have come with Your
gazing eyes, silent footsteps, loving smile, and sweet face. Baba, by
Your divine advent You have blessed me and rescued me by wiping away all
my troubles and suffering.   Baba, completely depending upon You with
full surrender, in that very distressed and helpless condition, I was
calling You and looking towards You. Raising both my hands in surrender
I told, 'Baba, please save me; You are my only shelter. If You will not
save me then who will.' Then at that moment You rescued me by showering
Your grace.   Baba, when I look around I see that because of Your
gracious presence this entire universe has become vibrated & charged.
The whole sky is enveloped in Your divine effulgence and my mind and
heart is drenched in Your love. Baba, holding Your lotus feet, I sing
Your glory in my heart and surrender to You...

            Health Guideline: Knowing the Root Cause

Baba says, "Due to weakness of the digestive fluids, the blood gets
contaminated by acids, or if one is suffering from constipation, then
different organs of the body also become weak. In such a condition, due
to weakness of the lungs, the nervous system controlling the lungs also
suffers from debility and finally the bronchial tubes as well become
weak. That is the time when asthma becomes fully manifest." (YT, p.62)

1. In the above quote Baba is revealing the fact that the root cause of
asthma is poor and improper digestion.

2. Unfortunately nowadays the only commonly available pathy is
allopathy. But allopathic knowledge is so shallow that such doctors do
not know about the real cause; hence they treat the patient in a very
superficial way. With asthma they only address it as it presents itself
on the bronchial tubes. By this way asthma never gets cured from the
root-- i.e. from the manipura cakra. 3. So health conscious people
should choose the pathy very carefully. We have to evaluate to what
degree allopathic science is trustworthy, suitable, and helpful.
