HPB wrote an article which states the attitude of the
Theosophical philosophy on the subject of abortion.
It is titled
IS FETICIDE A CRIME?
THEOSOPHIST magazine (Bombay, Adyar) August 1883.
This article has been reprinted a number of times in various
magazines and also in BLAVATSKY: COLLECTED WORKS.
ULT BLAVATSKY THEOSOPHICAL ARTICLES, Vol. II, p. 335.
The article begins: " At no age as under no circumstances
whatever is a murder justifiable...[the article continues and
observes: "The crime committed lies precisely in the wilful and
sinful destruction of life, and interference with the operations
of nature, hence -- with KARMA -- that of the mother and the
would-be future human being....feticide is a crime against
nature...[Occultism states] : "feticide as an attempt to double
suicide. For, indeed, when even successful and the mother does
not die just then, it still shortens her life on earth to prolong
it with dreary percentage in Kama-loka, the intermediate sphere
between the earth and the region of rest...]
