From a pro-life woman who believes in New Age Spirituality.
I once asked a “New Age” doctor who was involved in the holistic home-birth movement what it felt like to perform abortions. He had previously told me that he was just a “detached vehicle” for the operation and thought his work decidedly feminist as he was supporting the woman’s freedom of choice. I countered with the argument that to be totally “non-attached” is a task for a lifetime and perhaps not even preferable. Also that his karma, if any ego was involved, would reap negative fruit….But what does it feel like to perform one, I asked? “Crunchy” was his response….
