There is a difference between killing and abortion .... and Let me remind you Abortion or Bhroon Hathya has been happening right from medival times .. so, a sin becomes a good/acceptable bec it has been happening for ages......then why do we see women fighting for their rights now, the women were treated like dirt and low life from the medieval times no, why don't they continue to live like that.. the whole purpose of MKAP is lost if people r think along these lines...and why do we see people lamenting for the rape victims, why don't they just ignore it
I agree with you, Shakthi is not an Animal... yes, he is an evil monster
and di, i think urs and my perceptions of sin r way different from each other..............for me a sin is a sin.............and u said he raped her only once.........so every girl is allowed to be raped atleast once in her life and the person doing it is not a sinner or a monster bec he has only done it once...........a rape is a sin which destroys a woman/girl's heart, mind, body and soul............and taking a life without any remorse, forcefully threatening ur wife to kill her child etc falls under the category of sin in my perception.................as our perceptions don't match , i don't think we will ever reach a saturation point.................so i think the discussion was/is/will be in vain ...........
Fetus is not life..in comparison to Fetus, A rat is more advanced bec it has brains, Fully developed, functional Lungs, operating Circulatory system and yet we Kill a rat without any second thoughts .
Here again ..U have not understood what I am saying .. Even in the Medieval age, when there was strict moral code, when there would be constant calculation of Paap and Punya..People still indulged in Abortion..Now in this Materialistic world , where personal comfort is of paramount importance , where technology has improved that there is a weakening of emotional bond, Abortion will not considered a Big issue , as you make it out to be..
Not only Men like Shakthi ..there are women like Shakthi too, who abort their fetus without the knowledge of their Husbands and Boy friends..and I would not condemn them ..since the ultimate responsibility of raising a child falls on them...they should give birth when they are ready and not give birth bec their Moral Compass says it is wrong to abort .In such cases There is almost always a resentment and mild hate harbored towards the child ..and A child grows up in an environment of neglect and indifference ...I would rather get a unfeeling Fetus aborted than for see a feeling, innocent child robbed of its childhood, its personality ...
As for status of women ...Let me say this women status has remained the same..it's the perception that has changed..
Why lament for rape victims...counsel them , help them to get on with their lives instead of commiserating with them and holding them back...
