Abortion V

According to this report, legislators in five states have proposed laws that would ban abortions permitted, perhaps mandated, by Jewish law according to many rabbinic authorities. These laws would prohibit abortions for women who will suffer severe but not life-threatening distress from childbirth (see this post).

This is just another reminder that the pro-life faction is not necessarily a friend of Orthodox Jews.
