To abort a foetus is to destroy a child, to take its life. This is an act which must carry its own karmic penalty. And for a woman, whose very function in Nature is to bring a child into the world, such an act is doubly strange. How sad that, through ignorance of higher laws, such mistakes made in judgement and conduct have to be paid for--sometimes with many years of unhappiness or suffering, sometimes with recurring regrets over opportunity missed and gone.
