This Week's Torah Thought

Torah Portion: Mishpatim | משפטים  

With respect to the termination of pregnancy, those advocating the “Right to Life” have been pitted against the supporters of a woman’s “Right to Choose” for decades. Those holding the former position generally base their stance on an article of faith that deems a fetus to be a fully-fledged human with inalienable rights. This belief may well be consistent with other faith traditions, but it is not consistent with the mainstream Jewish view, or the view of this week’s Torah portion. In Exodus 21:22-23 we read a passage that most Jewish authorities take to mean that causing a miscarriage is not homicide, it is not the same as killing a person. Traditionally, an unborn child is regarded as part of the mother, not a separate entity and hence, if the mother’s welfare is threatened, it is permissible to abort the fetus to save the mother. Most mainstream Jewish authorities hold that both the “Right to Life” and the “Right to Choose” are rights that belong to the mother.

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Gersh
