Jewish Pro-Life

Samuel dies this day in Jewish history, so we examine his miracle conception, unlikely birth, and extraordinary life. What about all the babies who never are born because they die in an abortion? We will never know the destiny and contribution to this world of millions and millions of people. Each one counts, and so we share an essay from the Meaningful Life Center on this week's Torah portion, Bamidbar in the book of Numbers where HaShem orders various censuses of his children because each one counts.

Adoption Saves Lives! show art Adoption Saves Lives!

Jewish Pro-Life

The holiday of Shavuos, when Jews celebrate the anniversary of receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai.  To prepare for this holy day, we highlight the miracle of life, given by the Almighty Creator who gave us the holy book of life, the Torah. We shared about the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) providing 1000 free abortions last year. If the Israeli government only offers killing Jewish children as the solution to unplanned pregnancy, we need to provide outreach for adoption and pregnancy care to these parents.

W delve into the tragedy of the loss of Jewish life in Israel due to abortion. The Israel Defense are tasked with safeguarding Jewish life in Israel, but currently it provides unlimited contraception and abortions to its service members, resulting in 1000 abortions per year, killing more Jews than does its enemies .

How the Jewish Pro-Abortion Majority Causes Conversion to Messianism show art How the Jewish Pro-Abortion Majority Causes Conversion to Messianism

Jewish Pro-Life

We explore the spiritual and religious problems posed by the pro-abortion Jewish majority and why this contributes to Jews converting to messianic Judaism and Catholicism.  We start by sharing an article from Jews for Judaism that examines the need for rabbis to increase outreach efforts to Jews vulnerable to persuasive conversion efforts by messianic converts. We share about the many pro-life Jews who convert out of Judaism into Christian religions because they cannot accept pro-abortion Judaism.

Choose Life That Thou Mayest Live! show art Choose Life That Thou Mayest Live!

Jewish Pro-Life

We highlight the spiritual and earthly rewards that naturally result from following HaShem's guidance, and the existential misery that results from following the secular influences around us. Many blessings arise from saving innocent pre-born children from abortion, especially an inner peace and happiness knowing we protected that which is precious in the Creator's eyes. Conversely, regret, sorrow, despair, rage, bewilderment and fear occur when we separate ourselves from God, the source of love and light.

'To Save The Mother’s Life' Lie Still Destroying Jewish Children show art 'To Save The Mother’s Life' Lie Still Destroying Jewish Children

Jewish Pro-Life

This episode examines when abortion was weaponized against Jews in ghettos in Nazi occupied territories. Under threat that the mothers would be killed unless the abortions took place, rabbis agreed to allow this violation of the Torah's prohibition of abortion to save the mothers' lives. The 'save the mother's life exception' to the prohibition of abortion in Judaism is commonly misused to this day to allow killing children in the womb, despite that abortion rarely poses a threat to a mother's life.

Amazing Micro-Preemie Success Stories In Neonatal Intensive Care Units show art Amazing Micro-Preemie Success Stories In Neonatal Intensive Care Units

Jewish Pro-Life

Positive stories about successful outcomes for children born prematurely at 22 weeks gestation and even younger. Colorado failed to pass a ban on late term abortion (8 states already allow abortion up to birth). Louisiana passed a state constitution amendment that prohibits abortion. Covid-19 vaccine developed without using cells from aborted babies. Viability from a scientific and halachic perspective, and amazing pictures that shine a light on the actual status of 10 week and 22 week babies in the womb.
