Pregnancy termination has been a hot-button issue in American political life for many decades. It is also an experience that impacts many members of our community in a variety of often quite personal ways. As both political and personal decision-makers, Americans have been given two stark and opposing frameworks for thinking about the ethics of abortion, "Pro-Choice" and "Pro-Life", each with their own assumptions and roots. As Jews, we have a distinct many thousands of years old intellectual tradition about pregnancy and the ethics of its termination, with roots and assumptions that are quite different from either of the primary voices in the American debate. Come to this session if you want to learn more about how Jewish legal thinking on abortion has evolved through our textual tradition, to work through how that thinking overlaps with and differs from our previous ways of understanding the issue, and to openly discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the Jewish models for us today.
