1,500 Rabbis Back Texas Abortion Restrictions

Weighing in on the Texas law prohibiting abortions after six weeks’ gestation except in cases of medical necessity, Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), representing over 1,500 Orthodox rabbis in matters of public policy, called the law a step in the right direction, better aligned with mainstream Jewish values, Rabbinic texts, and legal codes.

In so doing, it condemned the left-wing National Council of Jewish Women and its “Rabbis for Repro” for what the CJV said was a distortion of Jewish teachings, devaluing the sanctity of life, and causing a "desecration of G-d’s Name".

“The Texas statute demands that human life be cherished, while recognizing that the mother’s well-being takes precedence in a medical emergency,” said CJV Southern Regional Vice President Rabbi Moshe Parnes.
