(Jewish Telegraphic Agency) As part of their year-end summary of the top stories of interest to Jews, the JTA lamented the overturn of Roe v. Wade, which they see as tantamount to denying Jewish women the right to be Jews:
In June the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to overturn Roe v. Wade. It was an unthinkable outcome for liberal Jewish activists, women especially, who for 50 years and more had regarded the right to an abortion as integral to their Jewish identity and political worldview.
Before the decision came down, Jewish studies scholar Michal Raucher questioned long-held Jewish organizational views that justified abortion only on the narrowest of religious grounds without acknowledging that women “have the bodily autonomy to make that decision on their own.”
Conversely, Avi Shafran of Agudath Israel of America welcomed the end of Roe on behalf of his haredi Orthodox organization, writing that the rabbis “who guide us indisputably hold that, absent extraordinary circumstances, terminating a pregnancy is a grave sin.”
Responding to Shafran, Daphne Lazar Price, an Orthodox Jewish feminist, argued that even in her stringently religious community, getting an abortion is a “conscious choice by women to follow their religious convictions and maintain their human dignity.”
According to Jewish sources, “the occult has always been an integral part of Judaism” — and so it only makes sense that the occult practice of ritual infanticide would also be “integral” to Jewish identity and their “religious convictions.”
Shedding the blood of innocent children has always been a part of Judaism — it is how rabbis make a mockery of the crucifixion of Christ — and how they punish Christians for believing in the promised Messiah of Israel whom they utterly reject.
Sure, there is a tiny circle of Orthodox Jews who are at least nominally against abortion — but if the Talmud teaches Jews anything, it’s that there are always exceptions to any rule or law.
Some Orthodox Jews, like the fast-talking, mealy-mouthed Ben Shapiro, go so far as to claim that pro-abortion Jews are not “real Jews” — which is entirely disingenuous because Shapiro knows that Jewish identity is just as much “racial” as it is “religious” and “cultural.”
The shabbos goy Governor of New York — Kathy Hochul — made a complete mockery of Christians on behalf of her Jewish backers when she recently appeared in a Manhattan church to push their abortion agenda — and had the chutzpah to thank…
“Everyone involved in this congregation for inspiring us and letting us know that God is out there on our side as we continue to make sure that women have the rights that are God-given rights.”
And to demonstrate just how “opposed” to abortion Orthodox Jews really are — prominent Rabbi Baruch Rothman gave pro-abortion Kathy Hochul his unreserved praise:
“She shares our Jewish values of promoting equality and civil rights as well as standing up for what is right. I look forward to working with Governor Hochul to promote the ideals of the Jewish community in the years to come.”
Anyone who opposes abortion is therefore implicitly “antisemitic” — after all, only an “antisemite” would try to stop Jews from expressing their fundamental “rights” to express their “faith”:
