Ben-Obama’s new Health Care Bill would provide 1,250 Community Health Centers (CHC) across the US with abortion funding.

According to some sources, there are 3,500 Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) in United States which advise women about family planning and abortion. They don’t perform abortion surgery. The statistic on abortion clinic is not reliable, however, it’s estimated that an average of 1.5 million abortion take place in the US each year.

“Whatever their opinions on abortion in any given situation, a vast majority of Jewish thinkers agree that decision-making with respect to abortion must be left in the hands of the woman involved, her husband, her physician, and her rabbi,” wrote Rabbi Raymond A. Zwerin and Rabbi Richard J. Shapiro.

A few years back, Jayne Gardner, in an article entiled ‘Abortion: The Kosher Slaughter’, wrote that abortion industry is monopolized by the Jews. She had claimed that half of doctors performing abortion and abortion clinic owners were Jewish.

According to a 2010 survey, 80% of Jews approved abortion. The Jewish Pro-Life Foundation, has reported an annual average of 50,000 abortion take place in Israel – which makes it world’s highest numbers based on Jewish population in the Zionist entity.

India’s Hindu writer, Gita Aravamudan (born 1947), in her book Disappearing Daughters: The Tragedy of Female Foeticide (2007), claimed that over one million female babies are murdered each year in India via abortion and other means.

“What bothered me the most was that women were forced to undergo abortion after abortion. In their heart of hearts, they didn’t want to abort their babies but social and filial pressures, the fear that they would be thrown out of home otherwise, made them do it. It had affected the health of so many women. Women were inflicting such injuries on themselves; they were ruining themselves ­ and nothing was in their hands,” says Gita.

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish,” said 2nd century Church document, Didache. However, like many other things, the Church has revised its stand on ‘pro-life’ too. Now, both Vatican and Church of England, though consider abortion to be ‘immoral’ – leave it to the parents to decide what’s good for them.

US-based Alan Guttmacher Institute has reported that 18% of annual abortions in the US involve teenagers (15-17 year-old). The great majority of Christians (64%-72%) in the West believe that decisions about abortion should be left to individual women and their doctors.

Kill not your children for fear of want; it is We who provide sustenance for them as well as for you; for verily killing them is a great sin,” commands Holy Qur’an 17:31. Islam considers fetus as creation of the Creator (Allah). It doesn’t give power even to the mother-to-be to destroy the fetus unless its presence threatens the life of mother.
