Skip to comments.Buzzfeed: Anti-Abortion Republicans Are Largely Quiet As Israel Adopts Liberal Abortion Law

WASHINGTON Israel adopted this week one of the most liberal abortion laws in the world, and will now provide government funding for non-medical abortions for Israeli women aged 20 to 33.
But Washingtons most anti-abortion lawmakers are largely silent on the new policy. These same members of Congress are also some of Israels loudest defenders, highlighting a peculiar aspect of the relationship between many of Israels ardent U.S. supporters and Israels domestic political landscape.
Last month, a health ministry panel in Israel recommended the state pay for the abortions of women aged 20 to 33, including non-medical abortions. The measure was adopted this week, and will cost the state annually about $4.6 million. Unlike in the United States, abortion is relatively non-controversial in the country.

Nothing good can come from this.
Judith 5:21-22 "All went well with them [Israel], so long as no sin of theirs offended his eye, the God that is an enemy to all wrong. But there was a time, these many years back, when they forsook the old paths God had given them to follow; then, in battle after battle, nation after nation defeated them, and a multitude of them were borne away as captives into an alien land; "
You sure? Sounds like Bibi had no problem with it
Like I said, depends on the source. Times of Israel is like the NY Times; they and Haaretz are the more prominent left-leaning media in Israel.
Classic Alinskyish attack.
This event has caused me to rethink whether Israel is the Divine biblical restoration of the dispersed Nation of Israel or just another wart on the socialist backside of Mother Nature.
Clearly they have turned their back on the God of their Fathers.
The Jews are gleefully aborting their race out of existence. If the Lord does not return quickly, there will be no more Jews in Israel. The Muslims are breeding like rats inside Israel and the Jews are busily aborting their posterity and paying for it with tax dollars.
Our Tax Dollars.
The same could be said of any pro-abortion country; no way are Jews unique in this. There are still the anti-abortionists in each country this occurs in, remember; it’s the liberal left that feels “glee” at this abomination, and all nations that do this will be punished alike.
I would guess the ultra-Orthodox are not protesting because they don’t abort, and this will only hasten secular Israel’s demographic demise.
I thought they already had a liberal abortion law?
I also think it’s stupid for Israel. But it’s good for the Palestinians.
Whatever money Israel gets in U.S. foreign aid (a) PALES against what the U.S. is giving to muslims
Regardless of how much tax money is given to other nations, our tax money is given to Israel, so pointing out that others are on the tit isn't a refutation of the point being made. Money is fungible. More U.S. tax dollars free Israeli tax dollars for other purposes.
End the overseas welfare.
American taxpayers shouldn't be compelled to carry the interest expense into perpetuity for money borrowed from abroad to be given away abroad.
If people want their money to go to Israel, send them your money. If you want your tax dollars to go to Israel, move to Israel and let them tax you.
There is lots of opposition to this in Israel. But, your news source did not choose to inform you of this.
It also appears that the new abortion policy there violates Jewish law, which begins with a strong anti-abortion stance and then allows exceptions but on a limited basis. For more information on Jewish abortion law, you may wish to quickly review: http://www.aish.com/ci/sam/48954946.html (”in general, abortion is permitted only if there is a direct threat to the mother...”).
Of course, not all Catholics follow the Church’s pro-life teachings, either...
Many Republicans in USA do not speak up against abortion in America. Why should they talk against abortion overseas?
The problem is far larger than described in your news article. The problem is in peoples’ hearts...
Somehow many people recognize the wonder and beauty of their own lives, but not the wonder and beauty of a little baby’s (or anybody else’s) life.
Pray that these stone- hearted people may find true Love (God, faith) and not just love of themselves.
