Does that make it right, because an individual woman makes a decision rather that a govenment official? this article is right on, but i am in the midst of a discussion with an old friend who is seriously pro-choice and i might have swayed him a little. when does a woman's personal decision to have an abortion severely threaten her people's existence? there are over 50,000 Jewish abortions in Israel every year and countless more Jewish abortions throughout the world. if not for the selfless decision to have large families by the hasidic and hariedi women, Jews would be headed toward extinction within one or two generations. this whole Jewish abortion thing (and liberal Jews are the biggest advocates for abortion) is nothing short of self-extermination. why are we completing what Hitler (amach sh'mo) started to do? how can we kill our own Jewish babies? i am not opposed to abortion, especially for well stocked populations. but when a tiny minority of people choose to nearly wipe themselves off the face of the earth with these barbaric procedures, you wonder who are our real worst enemies...

    Most of the doctrines adhered to by the Essenes actually came from heathen influences, not from the Bible. There is the Meimad group of peace-oriented modern Orthodox intellectuals. One wonders whether they could have imagined a non-messianic era in which Jews would debate, as they do now, how aggressively to pursue converts.
