  2. Very honest video and discussion, its refreshing for a change. Only got uploaded an hour ago, I think Sikh feminists and Sikh fem-men will get very upset with it. It's good they got a Sikh woman to talk about it, and allowing a man to have a say as well.
  3. I am a 20 yr old girl in US with a amritdhaari family who is very religious and respected. I fell in love with a guy who is mona, eat meat and drinks. I was never as religious as my parents but do value being a vegetarian and sikhi values. We were together for a year and half and Bc I thought I was going to spend my whole life with him we were intimate. I got pregnant and we went to many doctors appointments Bc we were going to have twins. I misscarried one baby and the other we had an abortion Bc my parents hated him and I never wanted to be a disgrace for my family. My parents explained to me so much to leave him but I can’t. I didn’t tell them anything about the pregnancy Bc I’m unsure of their reaction and how they will lose the little respect they have for me. I’m lying to them again that I’m not talking to him when I am. I don’t want to chose between my family and my boyfriend, who I was going to have babies with. I feel so guilty and depressed everyday I hate myself and think I should’ve kept the baby no matter what. I have no guidance or advice Bc I’m ashamed of my actions and can’t tell anyone.

    Read an article today about how a young couple decided to abort their child after the 22 week scan because the doctors said the there are strong chances that the baby will have a challenging life because there is something wrong with the babies spine. What would the sikh point of view be on this? In sikhi it is wrong to abort as you are killing an unborn child, in sikhi abortion is considered killing. We also believe that the unborn child is in a meditative state in remembrance of waheguru. But what if you find out that the baby has a serious condition which will give it a very challenging life? Spine related, disability, mentally not well, deformed, not properly developed or even life threatening, and other things on this line ? Is it still wrong for the parents to abort it? I have a cousin in his mid 30s who was born paralysed from waist down, he cant walk so has been on a wheelchair all his life, he cant use the toilet so has to wear a nappy at all times which his parents put on him as he can not move. It is not easy and is a very very hard life. I have have see how hard it is. Its not easy for a parent to see their adult son like this. So is it ok to abort the baby if it is not well(if the parents want to) or would it still be wrong in sikhi? On one had waheguru has given you a child and it doesn't matter if it is well or not but waheguru still gave you it and trusted you with the responsibility of caring for it and looking after it So it's wrong to abort it on the other hand it is very hard and some parents believe the best thing would be to abort it for the child's sake. Waheguru
  5. Bhai Jagraj Singh did a talk on the sensitive subject of Abortion. This is not often discussed within the Panth so many are left unaware of what Sikhi says. Many women are left distraught after having gone through such emotional and physical pain. However, find out more in this video about what we understand from Sikhi about Abortion. Note: there was also a follow on discussion about Rape.
