Abortion, legal if pregnancy causes danger to mother’s life – AG
Granting a legal abortion to any 16 – year – old impregnated by rape, after a medical examination, is a timely need. According to the current law in Sri Lanka, an abortion is only legal if the pregnancy holds a threat to the mother’s life, said Attorney General Eva Wanasundara.
The Child Development and Women’s Affairs Ministry has initiated a wide ranging dialogue with members of academia about the amendment to the country’s abortion law.
“Discussions are currently taking place among expert groups in Sri Lanka, headed by Child Development and Women Affairs Ministry Secretary Sumithra Rahubadda to grant a legal abortion,if any 16 year old is impregnated after rape. This decision has to be made only after conducting a medical examination, she added.
Attorney General Wanasundara was delivering the keynote address at the International Women’s Day National celebrations held at Temple Trees on Thursday.
“The Women’s Day is important to countries around the world as a celebration, but, to Sri Lanka, it holds greater importance this year. This importance stems from the fact that for the first time in Sri Lankan history, the legal field is governed by women.
‘The whole legal field is a cradle rocked by women today.”the Attorney General said. “When looking from a legal point of view at the United Nations Universal Declaration,the main document which addresses the protection of women’s rights clearly states that women should not be treated differently. The constitution of Sri Lanka also states that women should not be treated differently based on gender,she stressed.
The Attorney General said if women are discriminated based on gender by government officials,it would be a human rights violation. When looking at society, it is evident that institutions of justice are approached by a large number seeking legal aid. In conclusion, she said men who harass and abuse women should look at women like their mother,sister or wife, with affection.”
‘Then tomorrow will be a better day for women,” she said.

……to learn how to Abor…..!?!?!
Abortion in any manner ……is killing
Killing is a sin
….including killing of innocent civilians trapped in a war zone. And when the civilians killed are 40,000 in numbers, the SIN is quite significant and the perpetrators are bound to hell ……………
…the killers aren’t bound to hell. They’re bound to heaven.! Because their “gOd” forgives them whatever the shit is sin…!?!
I say it upto Damians view of god..!
What do you think..? Don’t laugh & Is it hilarious..?!
you can’t escape from the truth in anywhere & you’ve trapped in everywhere…!!!
I say that the abortion in ANY manner is NOT a KILLING…!
How’s an abortion of a dead baby or by mistake of medicines..?
Then i say that the all killings are NOT SINs too..!
For instance, think what if someone has killed by you accidently while driving & unwittingly…!
The “killing” or the “sin” is NOT SUBJECT to YOU or your “gOd belief”..!
So, the heaven & hell won’t be subject at all to you although you’re entitle to go to hell as a result of this same Misbelief(not knowing of sin)..!
This’s why I told you that you can’t talk anything in god belief which i can’t condemn reasonably..! You know what i mean my dear Damian..?
I’m afraid about you too, so i could help you if you want to escape from where you’re trapped in everywhere..!
My Dear Amden,
YOU are hurting the believers of other sacred religions. It is definiterly immoral and anti social.Let them believe in what they feel is true and sacred.YOU think what you believe is only true and the others are sinners. I like to remind you that Murderer Angulimala entered the Order and attained arahantship.He is a killer of over thousand humans. He did not go to hell as you preach.Important factor is not to find faults with other believers (RELIGIOUS OR OTHERWISE) but learn to live and let them also live.
And about abortin,it has to be resorted to if the life of the mother is at stake.if at all it is a killing, then it is a justifiable killing.
Auj., well come back to the stage after kicked off by Udurawana for leave..!
Dear, this’s not a hurting but an INTERPRETING of the things as they’re.!
Your above comment isn’t relevant here at all.
What / who is immoral & anti social..?
YOU’LL be the greatst immoralist & anti socialist shit, If a gOd cancels the SINs you did by killing.! Because that forgiving encourage you to kill more..! Then simply you’ll be an evil doer who’re heading towards the shit hell..!
“if you assume that you’ll be forgiven for your sins then you’ll be reasonably dare to kill”…! Isn’t it..?
Is that the way you god believers “learn to live & let others to live”..?
Then that ‘your gOd will be the real evil originator of all sins’.
you’re now accumilating sins here because that gOd created you..! Not otherwise..! Can you understand brother..?
Why that gOd created you to do sins..?
Does your gOd cheat himself by creating you here to let you be evil doer & forgiving also by himself..? WHAT’S THE MEANING OF YOUR gOd..? Is he a MaD gOd whom you pray in front of brick walls..? I think it’s not a God but a shit GhOsT…!
Auj… You’re just touching in the dark & not come to talk straitly. Don’t beat around the bush. You’re all god believers trapped everywhere.
Then I know before you that “Angulhmala” killed almost 1000 as he was misled by his teacher upon false info to take revenge from him..
It’s Better you took this instance here because it’s the ONLY &RIGHT WAY to cancel the sins, which The why Buddha led Angulimala. He has done it HIMSELF following Buddhas teachings.
He practically experienced as a human being, the canceling of his all sins done priviously & not to do any sin in future at all.
He touched the extinguish of mind & body(the self) which calls as NIBBANA.
Will it remain the SINS when his mind & body not exist anywhere at all…? NOT at all..!
That’s how he deleted his sins forever. That’s the Perfection/ Purification/ Cleansing/ Nourishing of Self or Soul.
This’s what i said no one can condemn reasonably anything in Great Buddhism.!
Let me clarify or comment on some of the inaccuracies you have mentioned about me.I am not a GOD believer as you say.Perhaps my undue absence has obscured your knowledge about me. I am Buddhist by birth and believe in it to date.I was born in 1931 and continued my studies strictly under SINHALA AND BUDDHIST atmosphere in a very rural and even sylvan background.Your saying at the beginning of a para “Then I know before you…..’ is irrelevant becauase you couldn’t have studied Buddhism before me.My Buddhism teaches me
“Sabba papassa akaranam – kusalassa upasampada
Saccitta pariyodapanam….ETANAM BUDDHA SASANAM.
VENGEANCE OR INSULTS HAVE NO PLACE IN IT.
Attention pls all..!
Here i found at 1st time 81yrs old buddhist man who uses internet..!
Things getting mad here now..!
What an “Empty man” you AUJ to use internet when 81yrs old..? Pls don’t tell you as a Buddhist or i’ll cover my face with both hands.
I might wonder also why you don’t know how to LIE without getting damn yourself.!
You remind me a line of Dhamma pada…
“අප්ප සුතෝ අයං පුරිසෝ
මංසානි තස්ස වඩ්ඩනති පඤ්ඤා තස්ස න වඩ්ඩති..!”
..”less educated this man decays as a bull”…!
..”his flesh are growing & not growing wisdom”..!
My dear Grand fa..
You’ve not learned any Buddhism correctly. You don’t know things of “Angulimala” also even till now. So you’ve not known it before me.
& i suggest you to practice “Pan-Sil” before you die whether you’re buddhist or not.
“81yr old sinhala buddhist man comments in the net”
only your description of yourself is a shit DAMN to you…! It’s Better you shit & piss yourself than telling of yourself.!
That’s ugly. Please respect others.
Trembling 81yrs old man came to defend the god viewed Damian. And he revealed things of himself which condemn himself. Do you know at least how to play the game called “let’s pretend”..?
The more you talk, the more you’ll be trapped..!
By the way…
Once upon a time a monkey found some “trapping glue” stuck in a tree which uses to catch monkeys. Then the monkey went near to it & touched the glue with a hand. The hand stuck with glue & monkey tried to remove that hand by touching glue with other hand.
Then both hands stuck with glue. After that kicked with legs to get release both hands resulting both legs also sticking with glue. Then the monkey pushed glue by head to release both hands & legs ending up with, hands, legs & head all bonding with glue.
This’s an interesting real story of Dhamma for you to learn than whole blind books..!
The story of “God made the sky & then the earth & etc..” is not even enough as the “bed story” for 2yr girl to get sleep…!
Let me answer the questions listed in the past. Hope this will cover the abortion license as well
Forgiveness: – Amden you are not in the right path when it comes to forgiveness.
Let me explain –
If I deliberately or by mistake kill a person ….and I go and ask for forgiveness with true repentance and promise that I would not repeat the sin that I committed again in my life is the real meaning of forgiveness. Repent for what you did and ask for pardon and reconcile.
You cannot repeat the same sin again………………..in life.
We will know the work of forgiveness is complete when we experience the freedom that comes as a result. We are the ones who suffer most when we choose not to forgive. When we do forgive, the Lord sets our hearts free from the anger, bitterness and hurt that previously imprisoned us.
If we don’t forgive, neither will we be forgiven: the God that I mentioned in one of my writings is of-cause merciful.
Yes Amden you are right…We are trapped in between Heaven & Hell. GOD never selects hell for us. It is we who select hell.
Life begins from the very first day that you had conceived in the womb. Embryo one day old has life. If you think of eliminating it from the world…….it’s a SIN. Grave SIN…….. Just think of yourself. If your mother had aborted you…………..you would not exist in these chats. You were talking of F*** a lot unnecessarily. As I told you earlier F*** is a sacred act. Think of yourself. You were born because your parents did that act. And you talk of F*** unconditionally………….bring disgrace to ones parents.
It is nice to see a guy born in 1931 chatting. You are welcome to the platform of the INTERNET …the biggest library in the world. May you live longer………………………
Thank you very much for your welcome invitation and for your wish for a longer life.It is also nice to see you admit that I am over eighty years of age. I do not have any special liking to blow up my age. I was an engineer in a govt. dept. before I retired in 1991 and my elder son has gifted this internet facility for me to keep myself usefully and enjoyably occupied during my long otherwise dull time.I do enjoy reading the internet and sometimes adding my contributions to “Leave a Reply” column.That is my pastime I do derive much pleasure from it.Dear Amden I have always addressed you in very polite language and never ,I repeat never used any insulting or derogatory words language but Amden seems to doubt my age and make a mockery fo my life.dear Mr. Amden I shall not harbour any hatred towards you but I shall not hereinafter reply or refer to your comments.i reiterate that I am a Buddhist and my age is over 80 years.
What’s this nonsense of you..? Did i asked from you about forgiveness..? You only repeat same shit instead replying to what i asked & escaping from my clear questions. Pls Read my privious comments & answer those few questions if you can.!
Then i KNOW better than you that humans come to this world by connection of human male & female. That’s why all of we’ve human mothers & fathers.
You mad god believers are the people who ignore it & say a god is as your father. Did that mad myth god F..k.d all mothers of you god believers to become father of your all misbelievers..?
That’s the real f..king disgrace for you your real human parents & We know how westerns respect their parents while used to call by names of own parents..!
And you say that your “god never select hell for us, it’s we who select hell”
so that means you can go to hell despste your gods wish..!? Then what’s the f..king power of your god, even if a human could go against & surpass your god..?
Is that the powerful god who created everything..? Bull Shit..!
Also, why can’t you select heaven by yourself, if you can select hell by yourself..?
Answer those questions instead repeating nonsense.!
For example It’s like this;
you say that, “you can fail the exam by yourself, but can’t pass it by yourself”
“you can go to hell by yourself, but you can’t go to heaven by yourself”
you just believe an unknown god take you to an unknown heaven.
Very Nice BLIND THINKING of you unreasonable misbelievers..!
You may say those nonsense bullshits to western jackass folk but not to us..!
We know that reasonably anyone can go to hell or heaven by himself or herself . And everyone get birth in this world by own wish.
Misbelievers of gods myth are trapping & condemning themselves by everything they say themselves.
It’s true that i doubted your age reasonably. Because i didn’t “expect or accept” this from a buddhist above 81 or at least 51.! You should be ashamed of yourself to say this indeed as a buddhist.!
But you’ve expressed things about you evidencing to your own situation. What i mean is that, if you’ve learned towards Buddhas teachings then you’ll not have “dull times” at such age. And you’ll be busy in practising Dhamma which is the only thing helps you to be happy after death instead looking pleasure from the past..!
So, i know it reasonably that although you’re a buddhist by name & not by mean in deep. So, i express my deep sympathy to you about your situation.
Then I learned & practised the Buddhas teachings more than double of you, although aged half of you.
Also the age or time is not the measuring fact of “elderness” in Buddhism.
The Trust, Determination, Awareness, Concentration & Wisdom are the facts of elderness in Buddhism.
So, i strongly suggest you to learn & practice of Dhamma instead surfing the internet.!
Otherwise you’ll face danger at the death where there’s no pleasure of past.!
