Female Feticide and Infanticide

I freaking love the Internet. I almost never have to leave my house! I’ve just about finished all of my Christmas shopping, all thanks to Amazon. It’s no secret to many that I hate, hate, hate shopping. Not your typical female I guess. Also I ordered all my groceries via Instacart, and they should be delivered in a couple of hours. 

Enough of that. In case you haven’t heard, medium Kim Babcock will be in Houston for the next Channeling Erik event 1/20-1/22. It will be at my house, the home where Erik grew up. Not only will there be workshops, food and wine, Kim (and possibly Robert) will channel Erik for you gallery style. We may even have him communicate with us on the eBoard. We’ll also take pics and videos of his orb in his room where he often likes to change his color on command, and we’ll pay our respects at his final resting spot. Feel free to bring your swimsuit if you want some hot tub fun after the end of the day. As with all the previous Channeling Erik events, it’s sure to be life changing and produce enduring friendships. If you want to sign up, click HERE.

Oh, and I was told that Erik’s phone greeting didn’t work a couple of posts ago. I did convert the file to AAC format (a lucky guess) and fixed it. I’ll post it here, too:

Now, enjoy today’s Best of Erik!

Me: Here’s another one from a blog member: “I understood your topic on abortion, but in India, and I don’t know in how many other countries, there is female feticide. This is practiced in some states in India by from all economic backgrounds that have this belief that they only want sons. It’s become a big national issue in India. Is female feticide the same as abortion? Why do some female souls take a body and go through this pain?”

(Long pause)

Jamie: Erik has this face—it’s all crunched up.

Me: I bet.

Erik: You know what I first want to talk about is why is this person assuming that the other one is going through such pain? So, rip out the assumption from the question. Why would a soul/spirit want to go through this kind of experience?


Erik: I could put my personal opinion on it that it’s really fucking warped, twisted.

Me: Um hm.

Erik: So, there are two souls involved, right?

Me: Yeah.

Erik: The woman and the fetus.

Me: Um hm.

Erik: With the fetus, they know what the choice is. They know what’s coming. So, they’re doing it really to help the lesson of the woman.

Me: Oh!

Erik: The woman is traditionally in the, um, traditionally meaning—speaking in general—so that she can learn boundaries—

Jamie: He’s kind of shrugging shoulders and I said, ‘Is it hard to describe?’

Erik: Kind of, because not always is it the woman’s choice. And so it’s being powerless and being robbed. So, signing up for something like this is either to—

Jamie (to Erik): What do you mean?

Erik:–simplify the life.

(Long pause as Jamie listens, a bit frustrated.)

Jamie: So, Mm. Okay.


Jamie: He’s talking about it’s now on a bigger scale about how the country is doing it.

Me: Okay.

Erik: This kind of—

Jamie: Phew! He’s using way more images than words so this is kind of hard. I’m trying to describe what I see.


Jamie (to Erik, whispering in an irritated tone): Just talk to me!

Erik: The way they’re pushing woman down, taking away their rights, treating them as partial—

Me: Yeah, but it’s so weird, because India is a land with so much extreme as the blog member says. On one hand, they have a woman president, women have excelled in all fields, yet on the other hand, female babies are killed!

Jamie: Erik is still relating it strictly to women—pushing them down, tying them down, kind of the blanket of how you’d visualize it. It’s like a dark blue blanket and like the bulk of the women are hiding under it. They can’t get out. They can’t breathe.

Me: Mm.

Erik: This gives gas to the momentum of women’s rights and watching—don’t get me wrong. I like being a guy, but what we’re finding is that most men that are coming into the world are adopting more feminine characteristics: showing care, being a better parent, showing compassion. The women, yes, they’re gaining more control over companies and presidencies and things of that nature, but they’re not ditching the compassionate nature and the parenting skills and the amount of love and care that they provide. They’re not letting go of that. Men are growing into it. So, what India and other countries like it are doing is powering the movement of the matriarchal system arising and being THE powerful structure, because most of the world is patriarchal.

Me: Exactly.

Erik: And with the spiritual evolution that’s happening, it’s the women that are going to be more honored and pushed up or raised up in title more than the men are. This pitfall, this downfall that India is going through is just going to allow this to be done more quickly and more easily.

Jamie: God, I hope that made sense! What is it? What is that thing that they’re doing in India? What do you call it?

Me: Feticide?

Jamie: Yeah, what is that? How do they do it?

Me: Well, they kill the fetus. What they often do is, after they’re born, they drown it in a bucket of water or sometimes they feed it milk mixed with pieces of glass.

Jamie (horrified): Wow.

Me: Yeah, and there are a lot of other techniques. Sad.

Jamie: Why?

Me: They’d rather have males.

Jamie: And the woman agrees to this?

Me: I guess so.

Erik: No, not every woman agrees to this!

Me: Okay, Sorry, sorry. My bad.

Erik: It’s the place they’re born. It’s the person who runs the delivery. It’s more of their viewpoint of what’s needed. It’s more politically driven than emotionally driven like what the want is: “Oh, but I really wanted a boy, so let’s get rid of the girl and try again!”

Me: Is it more common in the outlying villages instead of the—

Erik: Yes.

Me: Okay. So the reader also asks, “So, who are these souls? Do they have a karmic debt to experience this kind of death?” So, of course we know about karma, that it’s a human construct.

Erik: Yeah, karma really doesn’t exist.

Me: Exactly. That’s what you’ve said many times before.

Erik: No, the soul that’s coming in knows what’s about to happen, so it’s a different experience. It’s more the adults lesson not the child’s lesson.

Me: Right.

Erik: They can leave their body before they drink the milk or go into the bucket of water. The line between life and death is so vague, so thin for a little baby. C’mon, they don’t really get into their bodies completely until they’re about five or six.

Me: Okay, good. Thank god. In this case, that makes me feel a lot better.

Erik: You know, I mean solidly like a tiny adult.

Jamie (giggling): That’s what he calls them at that age. A tiny adult.

Me: Aw!

Erik: But they float back and forth up until about that age, so the death experience is not like an adult’s at all. Stop putting your twist on it, peeps!

Me: Good, good! So, I guess we’re projecting!

Erik: Yes.

    Oh Darlings,
    I hope you’re all having fun this season.i’m going to miss you all at the next conference. Sedona was so much fun. LOVE YOU MUCHLY,

  • 403LEC

    Well…feticide is a new one on me…and the method of killing the baby just makes me sick. All I can say is that I am sorry for these women who have these experiences.

  • Fiona

    Its like that time in China when they killed all the baby girls.

  • M&M

    Wow, hearing Erik’s recorded voice is surreal. It’s backwards, we got to know him as a spirit through Channeling Erik so hearing his voice brings a whole new depth. It’s making my mind go all fuzzy- in a good way.

  • KickAsh Artistry

    Are we talking about infanticide or feticide here?

    • 403LEC

      Feticide is destruction of a “fetus”….hang on there are more definitions on wikipedia…

    • 403LEC

      I could not find a word for deliberate death of female fetus….

      • ChuckVomit


      • Fiona

        Yeah Agree.

      • Fiona

        Is it female Foeticide?

      • In the U.K. and maybe Australia they spell it that way.

    • Probably both?

  • Denise

    We are eternal. We picked it.

  • Georgia95Luciana Todesco

    Erik’s on the money … again. You can’t blame poor women considering feticide. Having a girl child is a handicap. Imagine if you’re poor. You find out you’re pregnant. If it’s a girl baby, she will be a burden on the family. When she marries, a dowry will have to be given to the groom’s family. For a family struggling to feed itself, an extra mouth can be tough. On the other hand, having a boy will mean a chance of survival for the family.
    INdia is one of the most misogynistic, patriarchal cultures I know of. Women are still not allowed to own property in India. Sati is still happening over–that is, wives being thrown on the funeral pyres of their husbands. If a girl is raped in India (as they so often are) it is because she was in the ‘wrong place’ or out ‘too late at night’. School girls are gang raped and left for dead. Toddlers and children are being gang raped. Women are still considered chattels.
    Anyway, I’ll get off my soapbox. Women have a long way to go. Male violence is a huge problem. I hope Erik’s right–that women will come to the fore in the future. I think the world would be a better place if a bunch of old, wise women ruled it.

    • Lorri

      A girl is only a burden on a poor family because of the dowry system and because they leave their families upon marriage along with the dowry. But who put the system into place? It’s not the poor girl’s fault they have a system that doesn’t work.

      • Georgia95Luciana Todesco

        Oh absolutely–it’s not the poor girl’s fault; it’s the fault of India’s patriarchal oppression of women. As to who put the system in place–men.

    • 403LEC

      What countries have this dowry system in effect now?

      • Georgia95Luciana Todesco

        I checked on Wikipedia: Asia (includes India), Northern Africa and the Balkans.

      • 403LEC

        Thank you Georgia

  • Fiona

    It’s really nice to hear Erik’s voice.

  • Angela Gorden

    India is in gender chaos! They don’t have enough women to go around! They should have never mess with the gift of God! I have also heard that it is time for the divine feminine essence to take over from the divine masculine! You know what that means ladies, Women of the World unite! We shall come together and make this world a better place!

  • EL

    Female infanticide is something that I have a huge problem with. It just breaks my heart when this happens, especially when it was truly the mother or the grandmother who treat their own daughters/granddaughters with such contempt and hatred. There is an instance of it in the movie “Blind Mountain”. It seriously just breaks my heart to pieces! I remember just bawling my eyes out due to what was shown.

    Knowing that the souls chose this to teach the society lessons and that they can get out of their bodies when such horrible thing happen really helps comfort me.
