Abortion 1990  
 
Policies Headlines
Jun 1, 1990 -- Abortion

The Rabbinical Council of America in Convention assembled
Takes note of the different values of the many religious communities in America that are often at variance with one another, in the nature of a politically pluralistic society;
Is aware that the question of abortion is currently in the forefront of moral concerns in American society;
Proclaims that neither the position of “pro-life” nor the position of “pro-choice” is acceptable to Halacha;
Precludes the endorsement of legislative measures which would impede the appropriate application of Halacha;
Calls upon the total Jewish community to acknowledge that abortion is not an option, except in extreme circumstances and in consultation with proper Halachik authority.
