水子供養 returns…

I'll start by saying if anyone has had a miscarriage or abortion, how you deal with it is entirely up to you. Performing religious rites is certainly one way to deal with loss/trauma/etc.

That said…

I was just walking by my station and found two folks with notepads and signs advertising fetal rites (rites, not rights). For those unfamiliar with this, do the Google.

I will warn folks here about them. These guys may have simply been benign and looking to do some sort of good deed. However, in the 80s when this stuff started, groups (temples especially) would take out prime time TV ads with catch lines like "Didn't get that promotion? Lots of disasters visiting your life? It could be the spirit of a fetus getting revenge on you." I only wish I was joking about this.

So, two things I'd like to ask the good people here:

  1. Have you seen folks doing this lately? Is it picking up in popularity again, or was this just a one off?

  2. Have you been harassed by these people lately at all?
