Divaldo Franco, Brazilian medium , channelled essay on the subject:
Nothing can justify it.
An abominable crime, criminal abortion is a cowardly means
used by weaker spirits to flee responsibility, incurring a grave
and not easily erasable state of guilt.
Nevertheless, some countries have legalized all cases of
abortion with and without a fair reason-and we consider fair
reason all those cases of therapeutic abortion, medically
approved to save the mother's life.
Statistics in such countries show an unexpectedly high index
of offence against the laws of nature. Yet it continues to be a
criminal attempt against the life of a defenceless creature. That
is why it should be considered one of the most hideous
aggressions against a human being ....
Senseless advocates of criminal abortion come up with the
allegation that in the first few months there is no existence. Yet,
they fail to recognize that human life, in process of
development, is deserving of high respect. With the passing of
days, the fetus will be transformed into a man or woman who
deserves the opportunity of a bodily life, by divine decree.
No one has the authority of cutting short the phenomenon of
life without incurring in painful debt from which he will not be
absolved without paying a heavy price ....
No process of re-embodiment happens at random, nor is the
fertilization of sexual cells the work of chance. If this were the
case, it would be permissible for man to accept or reject the
It is also claimed that the legalization of abortion is a healthy
measure, considering the great number of criminal practices that
endanger women's lives.
A crime does not, in any way, justify its legalization to make
its illicit practice disappear.
Life is divine property and cannot be lightly squandered.
Since people consent in bodily communion, it is expected
that they accept the responsibility of their act.
Every action generates natural reactions, which gravitate
around their author.
In considering further the problem of legal abortion, the laws
are indulgent whenever the fertilization occurs through rape ....
But even in such cases, to expel the fetus by means of abortion
does not, in any way, correct the damage that is already there
Many times the Spirit that arrives under such painful
circumstances becomes a great blessing to the mother's agony
and oppressed heart.
Self-denial with the purpose of saving another precious life
brings excellent ground for redemption to the victim of such
tragic destiny ....
T he truth, however, is that the victim is expiating a debt and
advancing on the trail of abnegation and sacrifice to the
pinnacles of happiness.
There are no incidents of injustice in the framework of Divine
Law, reaching some and excluding others ....
Abortion, therefore, even when accepted by human standards
and legalized, goes violently against divine laws. It continues to
be a crime for the person who practices it or submits to it.
If legalized, it becomes accepted yet continues to be immoral.
A Spirit whose return to Earth was blocked, will try again.
A re-encounter will take place in the future between the
would-be-mother and the one whom she tried to avoid.
The previous commitments between them, requiring
adjustment without delay, magnetically attracts them towards
each other. If there is lack of love, a process of mental illness
will take place, accompanied by other disorders of a complex
nature and difficult diagnosis.
Thus you must favour life, no matter under what aspect it
Consider the liberating door of reincarnation. Advance to

Spirits who seek your help, and trust in God. The Author of
Creation, Who watches over the birds of the air and the flowers
of the fields, will also watch over you, who are more valuable

There is no excuse whatsoever for a person who practices
criminal abortion, not withstanding the moral chaos that is
sweeping the Earth today.
Every child is trusted to parents, who should love him and
prize this sacred opportunity to help him progress spiritually. In
due time, this being should be ready to return to his Celestial
The criminal act of abortion should not become a stumbling
block in your spiritual progress. It should be avoided, even
when it results in difficulties and afflictions ....
Every spiritual ascension demands a sacrificial task. But at
the summit's height there are promises of peace and beauty, as a
compensation for all your struggles. You will be honoured with
peace after liberating your conscience from debts and guilt.
To kill, never!
