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.
I was inspired to register as an organ donor after reading Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana's will and his wish to donate his eyes to the visually impaired Hazuri Ragi Bhai Lakhwinder Singh. After all, once we die our physical body is of no use to us, and through organ donation we can potentially help save the lives of others. Also, there is a shortage of donors from ethnic minorities, so it'd be great if lots more people could join the register. Because who knows, maybe one day it could be us or a family member or friend who ends up on the waiting list for an organ transplant, so we should all do our bit to help.
