Hina Azam Offers Islamic Perspective on The Texas "Abortion Bills"
Quoted in Daily Texan article about Jewish, Islamic, and Hindu perspectives on the ongoing debate over House Bill 1 and Senate Bill 2
Posted: July 9, 2013
Hina Azam, assistant professor in MES, specializing in Islamic Law, was interviewed by The Daily Texan for an article focusing on the views of non-Christian religious communities about the two bills currently under debate in the Texas Legislature that would require stricter standards for abortion providers in the state and ban the procedure after the 20th week of pregnancy.
"There are many different religious views on abortion that often go unheard. Austin, with its strong presence of religious minorities including Muslim, Jewish and Hindu communities, has a variety of perspectives on the abortion debate, which has implications that are likely to affect families, specifically women, across all religions."
