If we take a look at modern American culture compared to that of the Vedic
culture of the followers of Lord Krishna, we can see some unhealthy trends
that point out that American culture is declining.
One sign that culture is decling is the acceptance of legalizing abortion.
It means that our American culture cannot withstand the pressures to control
Before abortion, women and men were joined together in marriage to lawfully
and religiously engage in sex and to produce children with nice happy home.
But with the ideas of the sixties sexual revolution and the liberation of
women, American culture lost its understanding of family and adopted the ideas
of sex life simply for pleasure.
Fortunately today, many are seeing the disadvantages of free sex and are
trying to bring the sexual revolution full circle and reverse the decision to
One such man is Dr. Bernard Nathanson, ex-abortionist and author of the
Silent Scream, and who had performed about 75,000 abortions.
Dr. Nathanson, however, was responsible for getting abortions legalized in
the first place. In one statement, Dr. Nathanson describes how he had
In 1968, Dr. Nathanson was one of the founders of the National Association
for the Repeal of the Abortion Laws. It took him and his colleages five years
to convince American shakers and movers, that legalized abortion was what the
majority of what Americans wanted.
First Nathanson and his colleages convinced the media that abortion was a
sophisticated and enlightened choice. They announced to the media that 60
percent of Americans were in favor of abortion. They had fabricated this
Nathanson admits they lied by fabricating that one million abortions were
going on illegally at that time. The truth was less than 100,000. They lied
when they said 10,000 women each year were dying from those illegal abortions.
The truth was only around 200-250. Nathanson says, "Repeating the big lie
often enough convinces the public."
Other lies fabricated by Dr. Nathanson and his colleagues were that, "Most
Catholics want abortion law reform." However, most religions oppose abortion.
Lastly, they tried to cloud the issue about the beginning of life of the fetus
by declaring that it is impossible to scientifically determine when life
begins in the womb. Nathanson now admits that in 1973, he became convinced by
a new technology that studies fetuses, that life in the womb begins at
conception. Nathanson has now become a pro-life advocate.
The science of Krishna consciousness does not allow for abortion because
devotees of Krishna know that during conception, God has placed a soul inside
the womb of the mother. Any attempt to abort the developing child is against
the orders of the Lord.
Finally, Dr. Nathanson concludes: "Although I am not a formal religionist,
I believe with all my heart that there is a divinity of existence which
commands us to declare a final and irreversible halt to this infinitely sad
and shameful crime against humanity."
