It is common that a woman that wants to perform an abortion goes through a some sort of dilemma due to her religious or spiritual beliefs. As a consequence, some questions inevitably arise.
I’m religious. Can I abort?
I’m I going to hell?
My religion does not let me abort. What can I do?
The moral dichotomy that emerges from the anthagonism between a deep personal desire (the abortion) and a philosophy of life, is a situation that drags many into a depression. They start feeling like misfits and incorrect and like they don’t know themselves. All because they have this “unholy” need.
It is true that each religion has its own dogmas, but it is also true that all religions should adopt a stand of sympathy and welcoming attitude instead of condemning. This same posture is what has developed religion; making it closer to the wishes and desires of its followers.
Following this line of thought, religion shouldn’t be seen as an unachievable concept of the Divine and start to be considered as a concept related to human enhacement.
Human enhacement is synonims whith tolerance. Tolerance towards different points of view, different ideas and different concepts.
Realise that neither your wishes or your will are dirty or profane. You must understand that different ideas can coexist harmoniously without us having to destroy each other.
Your desire is something inherent to our nature as humans. By accepting and understanding its foundations, you’ll be happier because you will also comprehend and accept other people’s wishes and ideals.
