Scientology & Forced Abortions

Okay ... this sounded so strange I just had to check it out.

The Journal Enquirer in Enfield Connecticut (couldn't find them
online, I saw this in a clipping sent to me) this week reported
that the top level Scientologists are required not to have
children and that if they get pregnant, or their wives/girlfriends
get pregnant, they are forced to have abortions.

I thought that was tooooo far out to possibly be real.
So I got online and found a few items that backed it up.

If I hear negative things about someone else's religion
I like to go to those people and ask them what the truth of
the matter is.

So .. if there are scientologists or former scientologists, or
people who know scientologists, please link me or tell me
about this. Is this true? Why would a religion want to
not allow children? I THINK the Shakers were that way,
that only converts were allowed in and they didn't have
children because of non-sexual activity, but forced abortions
is different.

What gives here? Anyone know? This has me perplexed.
Thank you.

Actually I heard this on the Howard Stern SHow. However, my impression was that if they chose to have children they were kicked out of the elite sub group withing thier cult.

You have to remember that these people by and large have bought in to this cult hook line and sinker. i doubt any of them feel forced in any way to comply with the edicts of thier cult.

I dont know if I would use the Howard Stern show to prove any points, I have heard this too, other sources though. THese people are already out of thier minds and totally into this Scientology buisiness, so I dont see it as a streach for them to choose abortion. Better than they do in a sense. I just cant imagine what an infant would have to endure because its parents are part of a cult...........

Oh wait, I guess I have an example with Ruby Ridge and the good old cult burning of Waco and the Davidians.

I was under the impression that John Travolta was pretty up there in Scientology and he has kids.

Granted, LRon did have some wierd obsession with abortion. I know that just from reading what I could tolerate of Dianetics..
