Accusations That Scientologists Were Forced Into Abortions By Scientology’s Sea Organization

The St. Petersburg Times reports that more than a dozen women are claiming to have been pressured into abortions when they worked for Scientology’s religious order, the Sea Organization:

Some said colleagues and supervisors pressured them to abort their pregnancies and remain productive workers without the distraction of raising children. Terminating a pregnancy and staying on the job affirmed one’s commitment to the all-important work of saving the planet.

“You just have a way of thinking,” said Sunny Pereira, who was 15 when she entered the order. ”It all has to do with the Sea Org and what we’re trying to accomplish. Everything that is a distraction is scorned.”

According to those speaking out, women who didn’t schedule abortions were shunned by fellow Sea Org members, called “degraded beings” and taunted for being “out ethics,” straying from the order’s ethical code.

The report goes on at length.
