Abortion: The Kosher Slaughter
Jewish groups are constantly involved in fundraising efforts to keep abortion rights in the forefront, spending tens of millions of dollars to ensure that abortion remains legal. On February 28th, 1989, The American Jewish Congress ran a full page ad in the New York Times entitled "Abortion And The Sacredness Of Life," which cost them a staggering $30,000. Securing the right to kill unborn children comes with a high price tag. The Jewish Talmudic view on abortion is a disturbing one, since if a fetus is not considered a living being until birth, it can only mean that Talmudic Jews would have no problem with abortion at any stage of gestation for any reason, up until birth.

Who drives the abortion industry in the United States? Want to hazard a guess?
If you said that the main movers and shakers behind the pro-abortion movement in the U.S. are Jews, you win the grand prize.
Writes Charles A. Weisman:
"It is not surprising to find that the majority of abortion clinics are run by Jews or have Jewish doctors in them. Nor is it surprising that Jews are the promoters of abortion, as a majority of Jews favor the 'right' of women to have abortions. Worldwide it is estimated that over 35 million white children have been sacrificed by the Jewish-instituted and promoted plan of abortion.
"The Jews have long been pressuring legislatures and courts to 'legalize abortion.' In America this was achieved by judicial usurpation over the rights of the states when the Jew, Justice Blackmun speaking for the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 [Roe Vs. Wade], claimed to make abortions 'legal.' The opinion of Blackmun was based in part on the medical ethics and standards of another Jew, Dr. Edelstein." 
Weisman goes on to say:
"Abortion has become an overt means of child sacrifice which Jews have instituted under their de facto law. A more covert means of child sacrifice has been by their infamous "ritual murders, which Jews have been accused through the ages." In this practice "the blood of the sacrificed gentile (child) is mixed with flour to make the unleavened bread eaten at Passover." (For a history and exposé on this subject see Jewish Ritual Murder by Arnold S. Leese, 1938).
While there are, of course, pro-life Jews who are disturbed by the abortion rates in both the United States and Israel, I would venture to say that they are certainly in the minority, especially in the U.S. Their low regard for "Gentile" life at any stage of development, is reflected in the number of abortions performed by Jewish doctors (about half of all abortion providers are Jewish)  in Jewish owned "women’s clinics" (about a half of all such clinics are owned by Jews).  This is way out of proportion when you consider what a small percentage of our population Jews comprise.
Various people have commented publicly about the disproportionate number of Jews in the abortion rights movement. For instance, Kenneth Mitzner, founder of an organization entitled The Pro-life League Against Neo-Hitlerism, said:
"It is tragic but demonstrably true that most of the leaders of the pro-abortion movement are of Jewish extraction." 
First, let’s take a look at the Talmudic view on abortion.
Observant Jews today follow Halachic Law. They follow the Talmud and Kabbalah. They never read what we call the Old Testament, and they think Christians are foolish to believe that we can understand it without the Talmud. In other words, Judaism is Pharisaism. Three centuries after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., the rabbis wrote down their "oral law" in the Mishnah and the Gemara. These became the Babylonian Talmud. Later, the Zohar was added, which laid down the principles of Kabbalah -- which is nothing but sorcery.
The bigoted, supremacist beliefs revealed in the Talmud are, of course, offensive to all non-Jews. However, the blasphemous and Satanic beliefs and practices of the Kabbalah are most shocking to Christians when we first learn of them. Talmudic Judaism, as revealed in the Kabbalah, is a polytheistic religion. The primary deity in Talmudic Judaism is Ein Sof, who is genderless, and without form. According to the rabbis, Ein Sof created Elohim, the God of the Bible, who is a hermaphrodite.
The deity the rabbis spend most effort seeking through their mystical practices, however, is Metatron. Even a cursory overview of the description of Metatron reveals it's another name for the being the Bible calls Satan -- the god of this world. He is the god of the Talmud.
The Mishnah, comprising the first part of the Talmud, provides a source for understanding the Jewish position which assumes that life arises only at birth, which is when they believe that ensoulment takes place. So long as the fetus, or the most important part of it, its head, has not come out into the world, it is not called nefresh (a human soul) and therefore an unborn fetus is not to be considered a living being until birth.
There is a common rationalization of those who seek some biblical justification for the practice of abortion. It is a theory without merit. The passage in the book of Exodus reads as follows.
“And if men strive together, and hurt a pregnant woman, so that her fruit [children] come out, and yet no harm follows; the one who hit her shall surely be fined, according as the woman’s husband shall impose upon him; and he shall pay a fine as the judges determine. But if any harm follows, then you shall pay life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth” (Exodus 21:22-23).
The argument runs something like this. If two men are fighting, and the struggle injures a pregnant woman (who perhaps intervenes in an attempt to stop the dispute), so that she miscarries, a monetary fine may be imposed to compensate for the death of the fetus. This infraction, however, was not viewed as a capital case. It is then contended that the implication must be that the fetus was not a human being, with rights comparable to an adult person.
Misunderstanding the Text
This theory was presented a while back by Jewish rabbi Shira Stern, daughter of violinist Isaac Stern, as representative of the modern Jewish view . The position is false, because it is based on a misunderstanding of what the text actually says.
We must observe, though, that some translations have given credence to this erroneous viewpoint by rendering the word “depart” as miscarriage. The Revised Standard Version reads: “When men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that there is a miscarriage” (cf. NASB; emphasis added). The The Interpreter’s Bible (Abingdon, 1952), as well as other liberal commentaries, also accommodate this view.
However, there is absolutely no evidence that a dead fetus is under consideration in this passage. The fact is, the Hebrew language has a term (shachol) that denotes an abortion or miscarriage (see 2 Kings 2:21; Hosea 9:14). But that word is not employed in this context. This passage deals with a premature birth, not an aborted fetus.
The Hebrew word rendered “depart” is yasa, basically meaning “to go (come) out.” Though the word has a wide variety of uses in the Old Testament, it is frequently employed of an ordinary birth.
God told Jeremiah, “before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you” (Jeremiah 1:5). In Exodus 21:22 the verb is used “of untimely birth”  or of “premature birth” (cf. NIV; NKJV).
Noted Hebrew scholar Walter C. Kaiser, Jr. has observed that it is a “gross error,” either by translation or by means of commentary, to argue that a miscarriage is suggested in this passage .
In an excellent article which discusses this passage at length, Jack W. Cottrell, a professor of theology at the Cincinnati Bible Seminary, declared: “There is absolutely no linguistic justification for translating verse 22 to refer to a miscarriage” .
The “Fruit” Is a Person
A second factor to be given consideration in this text, is the use of the word “fruit.” The term derives from the Hebrew yeled, which is a “child.” In this instance the word is plural, “children,” which likely is calculated to cover multiple births, or perhaps both sexes.
In Genesis 21:8, Moses wrote regarding Isaac: “And the child grew, and was weaned.” Is there any question but that Isaac was an actual person at this time? Dr. Kaiser thus notes: “The use of the term ‘child’ makes it clear that a human being is in view here” (op. cit).
The Meaning of the Text
What, then, is the passage teaching?
Simply this. If two fighting men injure a pregnant woman, causing her to give premature birth and no harm follows to either mother or child, a fine will be levied as a penalty for such carelessness.
However, if any harm followed to mother or babe, justice was to be meted out commensurate with degree of damage. Both the mother and unborn child had equal protection under the law.
We must, therefore, protest the use of Exodus 21:22-23 as a proof-text for the support of abortion. Alan Cole observed:
“It has sometimes been claimed by those in favor of abortion that the unborn child is not really considered as an individual here: but that is not the point of this passage...The destruction of the unborn child was regarded by the Hebrews as an instance of the most barbarous cruelty, calling down God’s judgment (2 Kings 15:16)” .
Again, as professor John Hannah observed: “the unborn fetus is viewed in this passage as just as much a human being as its mother; the abortion of a fetus was considered murder” .
Clearly, however, the Jewish Talmudic view on abortion is a disturbing one, since if a fetus is not considered a living being until birth, it can only mean that Talmudic Jews would have no problem with abortion at any stage of gestation for any reason, up until birth. It is unarguable that a fetus is a living being, and it is abhorrent to think that pro-abortion Jews would be fine with the destruction of a healthy, viable fetus -- no matter how late in pregnancy the abortion would take place.
Abortion has pretty wide support among Jews in this country, and various Jewish organizations in the U.S. are openly, and unashamedly, pro abortion, organizations such as:
American Jewish Committee
American Jewish Congress
B’nai B’rith Women
Central Conference of American Rabbis [Reform]
Federation of Reconstructionist Congregations
Jewish Labor Committee
National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods [Reform]
National Council of Jewish Women
New Jewish Agenda
North American Temple Youth
Union of American Hebrew Congregations [Reform]
United Synagogues of America [Conservative]
Women’s League for Conservative Judaism 
Many Jewish doctors, as well as non-professional men and women, are vastly overrepresented among American proponents of abortion on demand. Here is but a partial list:
All four original organizers of the most influential group of abortion pushers in the United States -- the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) -- were of Jewish birth, including now pro-life Dr. Bernard Nathanson.
Dr. Christopher Tietze worked for the Population Institute and International Planned Parenthood Federation, and did more to promote the worldwide slaughter of innocent unborn children than any other person.
Dr. Alan Guttmacher was president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America for more than a decade, founded Planned Parenthood Physicians, and did more than any other doctor to promote abortion in this country. He also advocated mandatory abortion and sterilization for certain groups in the United States.
Dr. Etienne-Emile Baulieu, inventor of the RU-486 abortion pill, was born in 1926 to a physician named Leon Blum. He changed his name in 1942.
Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich is the "father" of the overpopulation myth. His "work," The Population Bomb, was the "spark" that ignited the anti-natalist movement.
Lawrence Lader, (New York University professor and co-founder of NARAL) king of the abortion propagandists, has written several books crammed with fabrications and outright lies that have helped advance abortion all around the world. Lader was quoted 11 times in Roe v. Wade, because he had a message that the Justices wanted to hear. (In the same decision, testimony from the world’s leading fetologist, Dr. A. W. Liley, was totally ignored because it decisively undercut the Court’s decision). Lader also founded Abortion Rights Mobilization (ARM), which sued the Internal Revenue Service in court in a failed attempt to get the tax-exempt status of the Catholic Church revoked for opposing abortion too effectively. He also was one of the leading proponents of the abortion pill RU-486. 
The above mentioned Dr. Christopher Tietze, who died some years ago, has left a legacy -- albeit a somewhat distressing one. There is a Dr. Tietze Humanitarian Award from the National Abortion Federation, which is awarded to doctors in the abortion industry for their contributions to, and advancement of, quality care in the abortion field.
Of course, it isn’t only Jewish members of the medical profession leading the way. They have certainly been aided and abetted in their morbid cause by various legislators, especially state senators Anthony Bielenson in California, and Albert Blumenthal in New York, who were the leading proponents of legalized abortion in their respective states and in this country.
It is certainly a fact that there are other left-wing organizations who are ardent supporters of abortion on demand which have large Jewish involvement, namely The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has opposed most proposed bills to restrict access to abortion and Norman Lear’s organization, The People For The American Way, which stands firmly on the pro-abortion side.
Not surprisingly, even the Anti-Defamation League sits squarely and firmly on the pro-abortion side of the issue. On April 19th of 2007, the ADL publicly voiced its disappointment that the Supreme Court of the United States ruled to uphold the federal Partial Birth Abortion Act by saying:
"We are deeply troubled by the ramifications of the Supreme Court’s ruling on abortion. By upholding, for the first time, an abortion statute which contains no exception for the health of the woman, the Supreme Court has undermined a woman’s right to choose and to act in accordance with her conscience and the dictates of her faith. We continue to believe that Americans should have the freedom to make difficult decisions of conscience and health without government interference." 
Abortion rights have pretty much become the litmus test for being an elected Democratic representative in this country, as evidenced by the pro-abortion stance of Catholics like Sen. Ted Kennedy and others. "Of the 41 Jewish-born members of the U.S. Senate over the last 20 years, 32 (or 80 percent) have been stridently pro-abortion." 
The radical feminist movement, headed by Jewish women like Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan, has been a staunch driving force behind the pro-abortion movement since its inception. Their disdain for families, and imagined female oppression by men in this country, and their belief that gender roles are a social construct and not innate, has caused them to push for abortion as being the great equalizer, liberating women from their "oppressive" role as mothers.
Simone Weil, former French health minister, and Auschwitz survivor who led the drive to legalize abortion in France, was quoted as saying: "We are out to destroy the family. The best way to do that is by attacking its weakest member, the unborn child." 
Kate Michelman is another example. For many years, Michelman, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America from 1985 to 2004, has been at the forefront of one of this country’s most contentious and divisive debates. Ever since Roe Vs Wade, NARAL Pro-Choice America, boasting in excess of one million members and supporters, has been the nation’s leading advocate for a "woman’s right to choose."
NARAL actively supports the election of pro-abortion candidates through various political action committees. They are heavily invested in lobbying Congress to fight any anti-abortion legislation, as well as supporting bills which would protect abortion rights and expand women’s access to "reproductive health care."
The Lichter-Rothman (both Jewish by the way) study was officially suppressed, and one can well imagine why. It’s information regarding members of the media and their pro-abortion stance, was staggering -- but not surprising. It’s findings?
"Leaders of the motion picture industry: 95% pro-abortion, 62% Jewish:
Leaders of the television industry: 97% pro-abortion, 59% Jewish:
Leaders of the news media industry: 90% pro-abortion, 23% Jewish." 
Jewish groups are constantly involved in fundraising efforts to keep abortion rights in the forefront, spending tens of millions of dollars to ensure that abortion remains legal. On February 28th, 1989, The American Jewish Congress ran a full page ad in the New York Times entitled "Abortion And The Sacredness Of Life," which cost them a staggering $30,000.
Securing the right to kill unborn children comes with a high price tag.
The press often gives pro-abortion Jews considerable coverage as well as considerable leeway. When Dr. Barnett Slepian (an abortion provider who was later shot to death by an anti-abortion activist) slugged a pro-life demonstrator over the head with a baseball bat (causing serious injury) for daring to picket his home, they not only demonstrated a double standard by excusing his behavior, they also claimed that he was targeted for picketing because he was Jewish, and therefore the actions by pro-life proponents were anti-semitic.
Marilynn Buckham, an abortion clinic owner, told the Buffalo News that the picketing of Slepian’s home was nothing short of religious persecution, and attacked Christians for not respecting other people’s religious beliefs. As a result of Slepian’s assault trial, the picketing of abortion provider’s homes in New York state was declared unlawful, and subject to a $500.00 fine and 6 months imprisonment.
In Canada, the leading proponent of abortion is Dr. Henry Morgentaler, another concentration camp survivor who became one of Canada’s most proficient, prolific, and notorious abortion providers. He flaunted Canadian law and established illegal clinics in Canada, where he performed abortions in direct opposition to Canadian law, and for which security was provided by Canadian police. Morgentaler was once quoted as saying: "It took me years to get rid of this image [of myself helpless in the concentration camps]. And to do that, it was absolutely necessary to oppose authority -- whatever the authority may be." 
It is a sad reality that Morgentaler has become somewhat of an icon in Canada, a man who is revered as being a champion for the rights of women. In 2005, Henry Morgentaler, at that time 82 years old, was given an honorary doctorate in law by the University of Western Ontario. Morgentaler spoke before the audience, saying he shared in the celebration of those receiving their degrees, and told them that he believed that his work to make abortions safe and legal has "benefited society", urging the graduates to stand up for their rights. Polls show that the vast majority of Canadians are pro-abortion and certainly many Canadians hold that view largely due to Henry Morgentaler’s influence.
And there you have it. Although it is absolutely factual that there is considerable "gentile" involvement in the abortion industry in this country, there is certainly a disproportionate representation of Jews as proponents of abortion rights. Also, Jews account for about half of all abortion providers and clinic owners; a staggering fact considering that Jews in this country comprise only about 2% of the population.
And why is this the case? Because they hate "Gentiles" and promote our destruction by any means at their disposal. Obviously there are Jews who oppose abortion, but there are certainly many who not only condone it but push for it. And they not only push for it in the early stages of pregnancy, but a lot of them have no qualms about abortions performed at any stage of pregnancy, for reasons not encompassed by maternal risk or gross fetal abnormality. They are fine with it at any time for any reason.
It is just another part of the Jewish supremacist agenda to destroy their enemy, the Goyim [a word that means, Cattle], no matter what they must do to secure our destruction. We are what stands in the way of the successful achievement of their agenda.
They must be opposed. While I do not call for an outright ban on abortion, I do think that abortion on demand has become a national tragedy, leading to the destruction of close to one million American unborn children a year, some at stages where the fetus is clearly healthy, viable and could be safely delivered.
While I am not a believer in the notion that women abort "5 minutes before birth," as some pro-life advocates have claimed during debate, I do know from personal experience that many people, in the pro-choice/pro-abortion movement, would certainly, and unequivocally, be okay with that, should it be legal. As the mother of two children I find that immensely unsettling.
Eight Days After Conception
Explains John D. Keyser:
"Taking into account ALL the evidence...including the biological science and the Biblical definition of life, we must come to the conclusion that it is the presence of blood that is common in all of these descriptions. 'blood -- carrying the breath -- is what defines when life is beginning, and when it is ending. Life's first breath is NOT the presence of air in the lungs, but the presence of a mother's blood to provide the vital element (or in reality, the oxygen from the air) for life (Hebrew: nephesh chaya) to begin'.
"The Bible and biology do indeed agree on how life begins, immediately after the implantation of the embryo into the mother's uterus eight days after conception. At that point, a mother's blood begins to supply the breath of life by means of the life-giving and life-supporting oxygen found in that blood. This creates a nephesh chai -- a living soul with the breath of life in it!
"We can now see that human life begins at implantation -- not at the various time-points that have been proposed such as at birth, at conception, and certainly not at 'viability' nor at forty days. This perspective, while not even unknown or even new, is so straight-forward, so simple and so logical. Not only that, but this understanding offers a solution that is founded upon a solid, scientific knowledge of human reproduction, genetics, and embryology that is also consistent with the Bible." 
The bottom-line is that abortion is murder, plain and simple -- it is the unwarranted destruction of life (nephesh chaya) and an ABOMINATION to YEHOVAH God! However -- life is not destroyed until after IMPLANTATION, which is the time contact is made with the mother's life-giving blood that carries essential nourishment (including the breath of life) to the embryo, and giving it life (nephesh chaya) on the 8TH DAY after conception. The union of a human egg and human sperm CANNOT become a living soul (nephesh chaya) without IMPLANTATION into the mother's uterus -- which then provides nourishment from the mother's BLOOD which carries the breath of life (oxygen).
It is a shame that the Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973 didn't include a clear-cut understanding of WHEN human life really begins. Instead of earnestly tackling this issue, Justice Blackmun and his Court skirted around it and rested their decision on traditions, guesses, and political compromises. This has resulted in even more radical polarization, confusion, and ever-increasing conflicts. In the course of time this confusion caught up with, and influenced, issues of contraception, and then stem cell research that did not even exist in 1973. The Supreme Court's inability to find a scientific, historical and Biblical answer to when life begins cannot, however, now be sustained in view of the evidence presented in this article.
The overwhelming conclusion is that the union between a human egg and human sperm cannot become a nephesh chaya -- a living soul -- without implantation into the uterus, which then supplies nourishment from the mother's blood which carries the breath of life.
To not protect the unborn at that point is unconscionable.
