World Perspectives – Hinduism



Ellen Foell, International Program Specialist at Heartbeat International, speaks with Subitsha Pichaimuthu from India about Hinduism and the beliefs surrounding life and abortion.

As we learn more about other cultures, religions, and worldviews, we can better understand how to offer compassion and support to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.
