    February 25, 2014 | 1:19 pm

    A billboard in central Tel Aviv features a black-and-white photo of a distressed woman above a caption in bold red letters that reads, “The pain and remorse from my abortion accompany me every day.”

    The billboard is an advertisement for Efrat, an anti-abortion outfit that dubs...

  • Abortion Restrictions Keep Increasing Nationwide: 3 Ways You Can Fight Back

    By Maya Paley

    February 20, 2014 | 5:37 pm

    More abortion restrictions were enacted throughout the United States from 2011-2013 than in the entire last decade. According to the Guttmacher Institute’s report released in early January of this year, 205 new restrictions on abortion in that three year time period as opposed to...

    December 30, 2013 | 5:00 pm

    Israeli women between the ages of 20 and 33 will be eligible to receive government-funded abortions in 2014.

  • Wendy Davis & Rick Perry = Good vs. Evil

    By Ilana Angel

    June 27, 2013 | 12:56 pm

    I love Wendy Davis.  Truly love her on levels that are deep, even though I only learned who she was recently.  She is an amazing woman and I admire her.  I do not like Rick Perry.  I dislike him on levels that are deep, even though I know I am wasting my energy.  Wendy Davis is...

  • Liberal Jewish groups unleash on doomed abortion bill

    June 20, 2013 | 10:13 am

    Liberal Jewish groups fired a verbal barrage against a restrictive abortion bill passed by the Republican-dominated U.S. House of Representatives, calling it “egregious,” “outrageous,” “an affront,” and “deeply disappointing.”

    Such strong language is unusual in any case for...

  • The curious consensus of Jews on abortion

    By Roger Price

    February 1, 2013 | 11:09 am

    That different Jews have disparate views is not news. What is news is when most Jews agree on a particular idea or approach. And so it is with the curious consensus of Jews on abortion.

    In mid-2012, the Public Religion Research Institute (“PRRI”) published its findings from a...

  • Letters to the Editor: Abortion, Barack Obama, Chris Christie

    Prager on Abortion

    I am so very tired of middle-aged white men weighing in on abortion, professing to be experts on morality, female anatomy or forensic pathology (“Jews and Abortion,” Nov. 16). Moreover, these same men rarely apply a similar analysis to the morality of the death...

  • Jews and abortion

    By Dennis Prager

    November 14, 2012 | 3:43 pm

    One of the most frequent questions Christians ask me as a Jew is, “Why aren’t Jews committed to protecting the unborn?”

    The question is not asked in anger. The questioners are truly confused. Christians think of Jews as the people who brought the greatest value system into the...

  • Florida Diary 5: Biden avoids Libya, focuses on women

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 19, 2012 | 1:42 pm

    With the Paul Ryan rally yesterday still fresh in my memory (details here), I drove to a Joe Biden event Friday morning in Sun City, Florida. It was a much smaller event and much more scripted. The crowd was sitting on folding chairs, not standing on grass, the stage was nearer,...

  • If Romney wins: Five things every Jew should know about Mormonism

    By Mark Paredes

    October 19, 2012 | 1:33 pm

    1. Devout Mormons can be found all across the political spectrum.

    The Mormon Church doesn’t endorse candidates or political parties, and although most American Mormons are Republicans, a Mormon Democrat has served as the Senate Majority Leader for the last five years. Owing...

  • Florida Diary 4: What Paul Ryan wants, and what women want

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 19, 2012 | 9:43 am

    Yesterday was an intensive day, starting with meetings with two congressional candidates at the east side of Florida (story in the coming days), continued with a long drive along route 80 across the state, and ended with a Paul Ryan rally in Form Myers – well, not quite ended....

  • Is Ryan hurting Romney with the Jewish vote?

    By Shmuel Rosner

    October 13, 2012 | 10:31 am

    I discuss the Paul Ryan question in some detail in my new book, The Jewish Vote - get it here as an ebook, or here in softcover – but Thursday’s debate could add another dimension to discussions on this question. At the end of the debate, both Ryan and Joe Biden were asked to...

  • Lying for the cause

    By Dennis Prager

    August 22, 2012 | 5:27 pm

    There are many admirable values. The list includes, of course, goodness, integrity and compassion.

    But there is one value without which civilization cannot survive, and without which evil is inevitable: truth.

    I cannot think of a 20th-century evil not predicated on lies. It was...

  • Reaching Climax: The Women’s Rights Movement

    By Maya Paley

    July 23, 2012 | 5:26 pm

    Women in the US are stuck on an incessant seesaw. We bounce up then we sink down. While we have taken tremendous steps, particularly on issues of voting rights, reproductive rights, education, and professional achievement, I sometimes worry that we already reached a climactic point...

  • The Western Wall at an anti-abortion monument? Good intentions, bad visual

    By Mark Paredes

    July 18, 2012 | 12:52 am

    In a case of using questionable means to achieve a noble end, pro-life pastors and activists in Kansas are planning to incorporate a full-size replica of the Western Wall in their proposed International Pro-Life Memorial and National Life Center. The wall will have 60 crosses in...

  • Abortion politics arrives in Israel

    June 18, 2012 | 1:02 pm

    Israel’s paradoxical approach to abortion — the procedure is illegal unless approved by a committee, which gives the go-ahead to 98 percent of the requests — could radically change if a Knesset member has his way.

    Nissim Zeev of the Sephardi Orthodox party Shas, who has said...

  • Film equates abortion to the Holocaust

    November 10, 2011 | 10:33 am

    The Anti-Defamation League has condemned a film that compares abortion in the United States to the Holocaust.

  • The Monsters Are Due on Maple Streets

    February 21, 2011 | 11:03 am

    The power has gone out in a typical American town.  Wait—it’s not just the electricity.  The phones don’t work, either.  Portable radios are dead.  Cars won’t start. 

    But then lawn mowers and cars and lights inexplicably start and stop on their own. What’s going on?  A...

  • Rape, Abortion & Justin Bieber – Shame on you Rolling Stone

    By Ilana Angel

    February 16, 2011 | 3:50 pm

    I have been in love with Justin Bieber for a week.  I listen to his music, went to see his movie, and have decided he is a great role model, and his mother is a hero for raising him to be a good kid, with a good work ethic, and a connection to his faith.  After my week long...

    She had 15 abortions in 16 years, and today Irene Villar, a literary agent and editor, is being having her story published as a book, “Impossible Motherhood.” From ABC News:

    June 1, 2009 | 6:31 pm

    “One of the stupider things I’ve seen about the Tiller murder.” I’ve got to agree with you on that, Mollie.

    George Tiller was one of the few doctors in the nation who provided the late-term abortions, and yesterday he was gunned down while attending church. Now, I don’t know how a...

    October 23, 2008 | 12:29 am

    In February 1994, a 15-year-old girl from Texas named Sarah walked into an abortion clinic. The procedure the young woman had hoped would help solve her problems went drastically wrong, and Sarah walked out of the doctor's office with a torn cervix and a serious infection. She would...
  • Who you calling rebbetzin, why you dissing Palin, what college anti-Semitism?

    September 17, 2008 | 11:31 pm

    The Rabbi's Spouse

    In her recent story, Danielle Berrin contemplates the role of the clergy's spouse ("Who You Calling Rebbetzin?" Sept. 12).

    It seems that one of the downsides is being misunderstood.  
     
    I repeatedly emphasized to Danielle that my voluntary role in our...
  • ‘The invisible pregnancies of presidential daughters’

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    September 4, 2008 | 1:37 pm

    I mentioned to a friend the other day that I knew girls in high school who got pregnant and kept the child and that I also knew of people, from wealthier families, who got pregnant and had their problem “taken care of.” What has made Bristol Palin’s pregnancy so surprising to...

    From the all-Sarah-Palin-all-time file, Perez Hilton says, “It’s called karma.”

    I don’t believe in karma and I don’t think the Palin parents are to blame for a mistake made by their daughter. We all make mistakes—even though some of my Christian friends who have been where Bristol...

    ST. PAUL (JTA)—A small Israeli flag propped up on a window frame. A Pat Buchanan button sported briefly as a courtesy. A prospective son-in-law with a biblical name.
