Reproductive Rights, Contraceptives, Abortion & Family Planning

RINJ has urged women in areas of armed conflict to avoid pregnancy for a number of reasons including the extremely high infant and maternal mortality rate. Much more than half the women die under these circumstances. Almost the same number of babies die.

“Denying the reproductive rights of family partners is a violation of human rights,” says RINJ.

Most politicians and clergy are male and most don’t have the first clue about how a woman’s body works. Some of the anecdotal examples are beacons of ignorance. Why get into it.

Criminalizing Abortion Is Wrong-Minded Despite the Uninformed Edicts of Ancient Religions

The RINJ Foundation’s stand is that any form of induced abortion for the sake of birth control comprises the murder of a child. Perpetrators should face criminal charges for the cavalier taking of a child’s life. Governments must make contraceptives freely available.

Induced abortion for medical reasons is medical practice.

Unless you are the attending practitioner or the patient, you have no say.

‘Life begins at conception’ is an intellectually dishonest statement. Conception seldom yields a life.

Medical researchers know that on average, 78% of all conceptions fail to go further. Some regions of the globe are worse than others.

Arguing that life begins at conception in a medical context is disingenuous and is a waste of time. It is deceptive logic.

The biological facts are what medical practitioners must rely on.

75% Of fertilized eggs do not result in a full-term pregnancy.

22% of all conceptions never complete implantation

31% Of pregnancies with confirmed implantation end in miscarriage.


That’s why it is not your call.

It’s a medical decision you are not capable of making. Induced abortion is a medical procedure. The patient and their attending medical practitioner make that call.

*Seventy five percent (75%) is what researchers, compiling a wide range of surveys and studies, estimate for the percentage of fertilized eggs that do not result in a full-term pregnancy, factoring in miscarriages but also failed implantation that usually pass without the mother ever missing a menstruation period.

You still there? Did you want to argue that life begins at conception?

Between the time an egg is fertilized to the time the egg implants solidly is what? Is there life? It’s possible, but not likely. Do you understand that? Wait a while. In a very short time you can talk to your baby and your baby is “listening”. Don’t even think about ending your baby’s life.

Next. 31% Of pregnancies with confirmed implantation end in miscarriage. Are you starting to get the idea that life is precious?

You are not going to be present when there are three  simultaneous requests for Ventilator Support and only 1 free ventilator.

There is no feeling in E/R quite like that of pressing repeatedly on a badly damaged patient’s chest to try and maintain circulation.  No sound like the hiss of the ventilator. No decision like, when to stop. You won’t be there either.

Discussing the medical procedures involved in a failed pregnancy requiring intervention is beyond your ability *unless you are the patient or the doctor in the case.

You don’t decide what happens inside her body. Leave that to her and her attending responsible physician.

Medical research lab studies on IVF patients have found that a very large percentage of eggs harbour chromosome abnormalities (the leading cause of miscarriage) and another study found that in natural cycles, about 22% of all conceptions never complete implantation.

Further studies on environmental impacts are needed but another factor in failed pregnancies exists and is more prominent in environmentally challenging regions of the world.

If a miscarriage does not take place naturally the patient could die. The medical decision and choice of intervention procedure and its timing is not your call.

A baby is a person and they need your protection.

It should suffice that it is a crime to bring harm to another person. A baby is a person and they need your protection. In other words, the laws that you need to protect the sanctity of life exist as globally common statutes. There are valid mitigation arguments for extenuating circumstances that make what is normally a crime, not a crime. Self-defence, the right to your life, is one.


Abortion vs Contraception

The decision of a rape survivor immediately post trauma regarding a dilation and curettage is the right of the patient and her medical team and none of anyone else’s business.

Caring for children and their families is something the people of Earth need to relearn.
