A Jewish perspective on reproductive justice and birth control access from twitter user @lechatsavant.

IDK about other Jews, but I want all goyim who see this – especially American goyim from Christian backgrounds – feel free to keep this in your pocket the “freedom of religion” birth control argument comes up. In fact, I encourage you to use it. 

Noted. Not from a Christian background, but almost everyone I talk to about this is. 

I want to reiterate that first point: Judaism requires abortion to save the life of the mother. Not allows. REQUIRES. At any point in the pregnancy.

Judaism also does not differentiate between threats to life: it is irrelevant whether the danger to the mother’s life is for medical reasons, mental health reasons, even financial reasons.

Any restriction on abortion whatsoever is a violation of the religious freedom to be an observant Jew.
