The Faces of Death

We realize some of you reading this will find the subject “distasteful”, in Spirit’s words. Or worse. So, without further ado, let’s proceed.


Today we’re talking about death, a subject many find distasteful at minimum. Specifically, abortion.

When you have an unborn fetus, a baby still in its mother’s womb, there is always a soul or spirit willing to occupy it. That spirit is fully aware of the what is going on with the potential mother, the woman who carries the fetus.

That fetus is simply a part of the woman’s body at that moment. But there is no soul (or spirit) inhabiting that fetus.

So what you call abortion is not murder.

We would simply compare it to—let’s take a simple example here… When Johnny was 15 years old, he had his appendix removed because it was defective. Would you call that murder?

We do not mean to trivialize human life and well-being here. But removing a fetus through the process you call abortion is no different from removing a diseased appendix.

The appendix is no more a fully developed human life than is a fetus. A fetus, by the way, into which no soul or spirit has yet chosen to occupy.

This will be controversial among our readers. But it is good to present these issues now and then.

Your Roman Catholic Church has no problem recommending so-called “just wars.” Yet it condemns abortion (and euthanasia, etc.)

In this short talk, science educator Bill Nye, discusses abortion. Again, we’re treading on controversial ground here. But please listen to this, regardless of your beliefs or values. It’s just a bit over 1 minute long.

    Thank you, John and Spirit, for a rational view of something that most people view with pure emotion. I deeply appreciate your explanation and believe it is perfectly sound. I hope you never shy away from subjects that are so important just because some may find it distasteful. Many blessings!

      You’re most welcome, Carol. Thank you very much for your kind, understanding words.

      We were a bit reluctant to publish this. But then we realized we’ve never avoided talking about subjects just because, as you said, people view them with pure emotion. I think it’s important to give Spirit’s views on any subject, controversial or not.

      Many blessings to you too, dear,

    This will help so many woman including my self. Unless you have come through that experience you have no idea of the soul searching you go through. Women do not choose that road on a whim. And those who judge them need to walk in their shoes.

    Thank you John and Spirit and a belated Happy Thanksgiving.

    much love and hugs always
