Hinduism and Abortion
  • Many Hindu medical ethics come from the principle of Ahimsa – meaning non-violence.
  • Many Classical Hindu Text oppose abortion.
    • One text compares it to killing a priest.
    • Another text considers abortion worse than killing one’s parents.
    • Another text says that a woman who commits abortion will lose her cast.
  • Sometimes in Hindu culture, abortion is done so that the family can have sons, this is called “Female Feticide.”

  • The doctrine of Reincarnation can be used to make a strong case against abortion.
  • If the Fetus is aborted, its soul suffers a karmic setback. It would be deprived of all the good karma it would get if lived, and now would have to repeat the cycle of birth. In short, it hinders a soul’s spiritual progress.
  • Ahimsa teaches that not only is wrong to kill living beings, but also embryos.
