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. Subitsha explains how Hindu women are often forced or coerced into making an abortion decision, even though abortion is a great wrong according to the beliefs of Hinduism. 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.
