Subject: RE: Abortion: Here we Go...
G'day,

The Romans of yesteryear use to indulge themselves when at banquets or feasts.
It would appear that the reason for eating and drinking became lost to most of them.
Instead of a supply of essential nutrients that is taken in and assimilated by the organism
to maintain life and growth, the focal point of Roman feasting was the pleasure to be had
in eating and drinking. So much pleasure, that those old Romans use to make themselves sick
in a vomitorium so as to enable them to return to the table and stuff
themselves with even more delicacies. Gastronomy became the end and nourishment the
incidental and sickness ensued.

Like those old Romans, it seems most people are using, what should be, their natural
functions in an 'upside-down' way.

'Natural' sexual intercourse is an act designed by nature to reproduce the species; any
'un-natural' intercourse or other sexual act has to be - I'll be kind - a form of birth control.
There may be other theories about the reason for having sexual contact but we must not lose sight of the
prime one - and the one we most certainly know about - which is to have children.

It is possible for one to survive for days without drink; weeks without food and a lifetime without sexual intercourse.

What had been accepted for neigh on 2000 years has become unfashionable for a minority,
so now some human beings are rejecting unborn children because they will perhaps:
cramp their lifestyle; erode their career prospects; make them lose a lot of quality
time and many other things - feel free to make your own list.
Just as it is easy to go to a dentist to have a rotten tooth pulled, so it becomes just
as easy to access the 'sexual vomitorium' to have an unborn child removed.
Eroticism becomes the end and procreation the incidental and sickness ensues.
Surely some very sick societies.

The history of mankind shows that if you tinker with nature, then nature will eventually get its own back.
For example after the Romans and their excesses came the 'Dark Ages' and after the Tudors came the Stuarts.

After reading the above I see nothing but 'doom and gloom'; so what is the solution to treating 'sick' societies and how do you make them 'boom and bloom'?
The start of the treatment is the creation of a new mind - what the Greeks called 'metanoia'
- a new mind with new values. And these new values, we shall find, are some of the oldest
values in the world.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.
Indeed it is the only thing that ever has."
---Margaret Mead.

"One gets great lessons from history in that, however long it takes, the power of the
powerless can change history's course. When the powerless get together in a chorus of
protest, armed with nothing more than their strong will for survival and for the growth of
their children, the centre of gravity can be moved."

---Varindra Vittachi.

Let us be the representatives for the powerless, in this case our unborn and unwanted children and help them to live.

Please forgive my heaviness. I am not directly attacking any person, as I'm sure most of us
contribute in, at least, some small way to the ills of mankind.

Bcnu,
Colwyn.
