Nursing Students Ready to Take a Stand

More than 250 nursing students attended a screening of a documentary about India’s missing girls. In a few short years, many of these students will be at the front lines of the issue of sex-selective abortion. They will be providing prenatal care, attending births and counseling mothers. After the film screening, we asked the students, “When people come to the hospital with these concerns what will you do? What will be your response?” The whole student body shouted in response, “We will stand against it!” Amidst discussion of including gender sensitization to the nursing curriculum, approximately 200 students and faculty members signed pledge cards stating their stand against sex-selective abortion, dowry and violence towards women.
