    In a move that can only be described as incomprehensible and utterly tragic, Israel’s cabinet approved a new health policy that will cover all abortions for women from age 20-33 in the year of 2014. The government will pay for abortions at a cost of $4.6 million dollars. These state funded abortions will seek to provide funding for up to 6,300 women.The Jewish Chronicle Online describes this decision as one that showcases how progressive and forward-leaning the country’s political stance can be, despite still having a dominant religious lobby, and a conservative prime minister.Before this ruling, subsidized abortions in Israel...

    Israel will pay for abortions for women between the age of 20 and 33 in 2014, Ha’aretz reports, and health officials announced Monday they hope to expand eligibility to all women in the future. The funding was approved as part of the 2014 list of state-subsidized medical items, and expands coverage for women who were previously eligible for state-funded abortions only in the case of a medical emergency or sexual abuse. Women under 20 and over 40 are already eligible for state-funded abortions regardless of circumstance. The new rule will allow for 6,300 more women to have abortions next year.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 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...
  • 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 Washington’s most anti-abortion lawmakers are largely silent on the new policy. These same members of Congress are also some of Israel’s loudest defenders, highlighting a peculiar aspect of the relationship between many of Israel’s ardent U.S. supporters and Israel’s 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...

    Sen. Rand Paul, the tea party favorite and possible 2016 presidential candidate, is raising money for a conservative gun rights group that’s targeting fellow Republicans, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. And when one congressman complained, the message from Paul’s camp was: too bad. The Kentucky Republican has lent his name to fundraising pitches for the National Association for Gun Rights, a group that says the National Rifle Association is too willing to compromise on gun rights. The group has blitzed the districts of Virginia Republicans Cantor and Rep. Scott Rigell with $50,000 worth of TV and radio ads accusing...
