Osnat is a 20-year-old native Israeli from a religious family. Shortly after joining the army, she became pregnant. Both her boy friend and the army encouraged her to have an abortion. However, because of her religious background, she knew that this was life and that she could not take it.

After her father learned of her pregnancy, he threw her out of his home. She went to live with friends. The army released her when she reached her fourth month (The army offers free abortions and waited for four months expecting her to abort).

Shirel

Hagit is a 28-year-old religious Jew. She is married and has four children. During the pregnancy with her 4th child, her husband brought tremendous pressure on her to have an abortion due to the expense of another child.

Hagit came to Be’ad Chaim  for help. Be’ad Chaim  gave her counseling and provided financial assistance. This was enough to turn the heart of her husband and he agreed to have the baby, named Shirel, (song of God),  who was born September, 2007.
