My wife has had two abortions -- one forced upon her by her
father before I knew her and one of her own decision with a boy-
friend before me. My wife also miscarried once after we were
My wife isn't spiritually inclined at all -- much less theo-
sophically inclined (she calls it my "guru shit"). She has rare-
ly made mention of these events in her life and I haven't noticed
any difference in her emotionally or mentally in the before/after
times that I new her during the last two events.
Although the last two events occurred way before I ever had a
spiritual or theosophical thought, I haven't given much thought
to the "possibilities" of what would have happened if the last
two events had gone the "other" way.
On a related note, I have a friend who claims to have been in
communication with two of her unborn children shortly after con-
ception -- both of which, for unknown reasons, she wasn't able to
carry to term. Describing the communication and the "deaths" is
a very emotional experience for this friend and brings her to
tears. She, obviously, doesn't believe in abortion. Since this
friend has had other spiritual experiences, I have asked her to
find some way to go "in" and ask for the information I seek about
when the spirit becomes attached to the physical. She has yet to
do this for me probably because her belief- or knowing-system al-
ready has an answer for her. She has not completely changed my
belief system yet.
Anyway, someone asked. I thought I'd respond. Always grok in
