All the sangat were intrested in were protecting some kind of izat and they publically denounced abortions as bad.
I didn't understand this. What happens if a mother has an abortion in karma etc.
and what consquences does it have for people who advocate and support abortion?
Position on Abortion:
The soul of the child does not enter the body until 120 days after conception. This period of time is built in by the Creator so the parents can be sure they want the child. Abortion is only a problem after 120 days, then you would be killing the child.
It is much worse to have a child you don't want, than to terminate a pregnancy and give that soul a chance to go into another home where it will be wanted and guided properly.
