June 29, 2005 -- THE new religion embraced by former Catholic schoolgirl Katie Holmes--unlike her original faith--actually
encourages abortion. As The Post's Philip Recchia has re ported, the
Church of Scientology assigned Tom Cruise's fiancÃ©e a full-time
handler, Jessica Rodriguez, 29, who is a member of the sect's elite
corps, the Sea Organization. Like all Sea Org members, Rodriguez is
discouraged by the sect from ever giving birth. And if she does get
pregnant, chances are she'll have an abortion. A former high-ranking
Sea Org member now tells Recchia: "It is estimated that there have
been some 1,500 abortions carried out by women in the Sea Organization
since the implementation of a rule in the late '80s that members could
not remain in the organization if they decided to have children. And
if members who have been in the Sea Organization for, say, 10 years do
decide to have kids, they are dismissed with no more than $1,000" in
severance. Our source's ex-wife was also a Sea Org, and she was
pressured by the church into having an abortion.
It started on the Apollo, where Elwrong "Horrors of abortion in
Dianetics" Humbug didn't want any kids messing up his super Oatee
thinking powers. That's why his wife's secretary got three abortions
while on staff there.
And it's why Irene Howey (later Irene Dirman), one of his best
executives, left the ship rather than have an abortion.
In short, the abortion insanity came straight from - the
Flounder of $cientology himself.
