    Surge Summary: A “pro-choice” attitude is rampant among modern Judaism – but if one looks at what the Jewish scriptures actually teach, Judaism from the start was actually supposed to present the “pro-life” view.

    by The Ruth Institute

    This week’s Dr. J Show guest is Cecily Routman, who founded the Jewish Pro-Life Foundation in 2006. “There was no Jewish voice [in the pro-life arena], and I wanted to provide one,” she said. “Also, there’s a high rate of abortion in the Jewish community. That’s such a tragic thing. We were undereducated and behind the curve in terms of pro-life information.”

    Routman grew up thinking abortion was acceptable, but when researching, she discovered there was no basis for supporting abortion within Scripture or the Torah. In reality, “Judaism was the first religion in history to ban child sacrifice and to sanctify human life from conception,” she said. For her website, she created a powerpoint called “Judaism: the original pro-life religion.”

    Jews have assimilated into secular culture to the point of forgetting or not knowing what the Torah says. “We’re easily manipulated and exploited by these propagandists and opportunists. To say Judaism gives a right to kill unborn children is completely opposite what our original law said. Unfortunately, it’s dangerous for some organizations to come out against abortion because they’ll lose their donors.”

    Nevertheless, Routman says, “We need to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and speak for our tradition that is pro-life and pro-baby.”

    The Jewish Pro-Life Foundation provides information, pregnancy care, adoption referrals, and a healing program for Jewish men and women who suffer after abortion.
