Israel may give ‘free’ abortions to women aged 20-33, at a cost of $4.5 million a year

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 3, 2014 ( – A committee has recommended that Israel expand its national funding for abortion, as well as access – giving “free” abortions to women aged 20 to 33.

The recommendations are likely to be made law in 2014, thus expanding the number of abortions in the Middle Eastern state by 6,300 – and costing taxpayers $4.5 million.

Current Israeli law allows abortion in almost any case, and the government pays for abortions for women under 18 and for medical reasons. Women under 20 and over 40 can have government-funded abortions under special circumstances, and women between those ages if rape, incest, and life of the mother are relevant.

While killing an unborn baby carries a penalty of up to five years in prison, numerous exceptions exist. Men have no say in the deaths of unborn children in the case of abortion, and minors are not required to inform parents if they are having an abortion.

Each woman in the Israeli military, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), is given at least one “free” abortion if she wants one.

Furthermore, while all women who want a publicly funded abortion must go before a government panel before having an abortion, The Times of Israel reports 98 percent of abortions are approved.

According to the Times, the committee would have expanded abortion further, but cost considerations prevented this from happening.

Private abortions cost approximately $1,600; expansion of public funding will cost $714 dollars per abortion, according to the committee.

There are currently 20,000 abortions performed annually at public hospitals in Israel.

what is this ‘cost’ when they’re labeled ‘free’?

if they’re free who do they bill?

why lie and say they’re free if they cost 4.5 million dollars?

I have one better.

Who will care for the old when the young are killed?

The young who would have worked and put in to the system?

No wonder the Israeli Arabs are outproducing them in terms of children.

MEMO to Israel’s “leaders”: One of the problems you folks face is the muzzies are OUTBREEDING you and most of their enemies (including US here). So your answer is to ABORT thousands of NEW JEWS??

Sounds like really great plan and a recipe for another holocaust.

I agree with the previous poster who asked if this is why you survived Hitler’s “final solution”? To implement one of your own???

Just more of the JSS. (Jewish suicide syndrome.). Alas. Note also that probably ninety percent of abortions violate Jewish religious teachings but Israel has a percentage of. “ secular Jews” just like USA has a percentage of “fallen- away Christians “ and “cafeteria Catholics”. Put simply, church and synagogue still haven’t found the formula to get the faith message across nearly as well as you might think ( given how long they’ve had to practice it) Pray for America. And pray for Israel.

Henry Morgentaler, the leading abortionist in Canada for years, survived one of Hitler’s camps.

This (legal abortion in Israel) is just a reminder that the State of Israel is NOT “the people of Israel” or “the Jewish people.”

The establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 is without theological significance.

Liberals Need Amnesty Because Abortion is Killing Their Base
Posted 1 min ago by Gary DeMar Filed under Abortion, Immigration, Politics

There’s a general world-wide birth dearth. European nations are not able to replenish their population. Birth rates are down and abortion rates are up.

Even Israel has gotten into financing its own destruction by paying for abortions. As I mentioned in a previous article, the Jews are doing what Hitler could not do.

ObamaCare is pushing contraception. Liberals love abortion. Even the Girl Scouts have finally shown its true pro-abortion colors by declaring that pro-abortion pro-abortion advocate and candidate for governor in Texas is an “incredible” woman who deserved to be on a 2013 “women of the year” list.

Again, more self-destruction and fewer liberal voters.

This would only make sense if they were performing these abortions on “palestinians”.
