Sikh view

Sikh View

  • Abortion is forbidden – interferes with God

  • Life begins at conception

  • Sikh code of conduct does not deal with any ethical issues

  • No issues with contraception

  • High respect for life

  • Against Euthanasia – God decides when life begins/ends

  • Suffering is part of Karma

  • The highest spiritual state is accepting God will without reluctance

  • Not absolute – duty to use life responsibly and make appropriate decisions


Christian view

Christian View

  • Mostly against Abortion/Euthanasia

  • All life is God given

  • Birth and death can only be determined by God

  • Human life is in Gods image – treated as such

  • All humans are equal

  • Never an occasion where someone would be better off dead

  • Respect all decisions referring to the end of life
