MONTREAL, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - The Raelian position on the subject of
abortion considers and reconciles two fundamental values: a woman's right to
preserve her body's integrity and her self-determination, and the foetus'
right to live.
For Rael, the spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement, a
woman must be able, at all times, to voluntarily terminate her pregnancy.
"Abortion must be available until the foetus is capable of surviving on
its own", explains Rael. "Meanwhile, women who do not wish to keep a child
past this time, should be informed about ways to give birth prematurely, and
anonymously entrust the baby capable of surviving alone to appropriate
institutions that can find adoptive parents."
"With this position, enlightened by wisdom and great humanism, the rights
of both child and mother are respected", emphasizes the president of the
Canadian Raelian Movement and doctor, the Bishop Marc Rivard. The Council of
the Raelian Bishops wishes to have this position heard by the whole population
and by government authorities who aren't succeeding in taking a stand on this
issue. With this intention, a sizeable group of Raelians will be present
during the demonstration "No, not another C-484: one does not play with
women's rights", on coming September, 28.

About the Raelian Movement rael.org and press.rael.org
The Raelian Movement is the largest non-profit atheist organisation in
the world, which relates how life on earth was created by an extra-terrestrial
civilisation, known in the original Bible as Elohim, through the synthesis of
DNA. It brings together 65,000 members from 86 countries who actively
publicise the message these extra-terrestrial scientists gave to Rael, with
the goal of building an embassy to welcome them officially and propagate their
values of peace and non violence. The Raelian Movement is making waves through
its non-conformist and politically incorrect philosophy.
