Judaism emphasizes the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death,
making it incumbent upon Jews to find alternative life saving ways to deal with unplanned and unwanted pregnancy.
Adoption is a much better choice for Jews than the intentional killing of an innocent life.
Choosing adoption for your baby is better for you, too.
It is well documented that women who choose life have better outcomes than those who choose abortion.
Abortion has so many negative consequences.
These are rarely heard of in the Jewish community so we have the mistaken impression that abortion is a completely sensible, acceptable, and preferable way to avoid the shame, embarrassment, and inconvenience that often accompanies unplanned pregnancy.
After the abortion, sometimes immediately or even decades later, Jews face monumental barriers to processing the surprising feelings of guilt, depression, rage and grief. These feelings go unexpressed in our social, family, temple and professional circles due to the fear of being ostracized or judged. This isolates us on a personal level and leads to mental and behavioral problems that get worse over time.
We’ve been told that abortion helps women; however, research now shows that abortion damages women.
Abortion causes physical, relational, psychological, emotional and mental damage.
A strong correlation exists between abortion and breast cancer rates and infertility.
A few months of pregnancy and normal delivery is much healthier and much less risky than abortion and all of its side affects.
Every abortion method has risks.
Often, abortion is framed as less cruel than adoption because it avoids a painful emotional separation after delivery.
What is cruel is an innocent child's death and a woman's lifelong guilt when she realizes she has killed her child.
Women who choose adoption look back with relief that they gave their child a happy life.
Jewish tradition emphasizes compassion for the vulnerable and disenfranchised. Jews have a keen sense of social injustice and speak out against it without reservation. Uncharacteristically, we deny the need to defend the life of the most vulnerable and defenseless of all, our own unborn children. Instead, the majority Jewish community actively supports killing them for any reason with no second opinion or legal defense required. Many baby girls are aborted every year but no one speaks of their lost civil liberties. We must advocate for the Jewish unborn child who cannot speak up in defense of its own life. Leviticus 19:16 states, “Do not stand idly by while your neighbor's blood is being spilled” If this obligation applies to the perhaps wrongly accused criminal on death row, it must also apply to the certainly innocent unborn child.

The Jewish Pro-Life Foundation knows Jewish couples who want to adopt Jewish babies. These couples can't have children of their own. They long to raise a Jewish baby.
Choosing this life saving option gives your unborn child a life in a loving Jewish home.
Adoption is a fine alternative to abortion that avoids the burden of child rearing, while saving a life and making a family happy.
Arrangements can be made to safeguard your reputation while you are pregnant.
The preborn child is not a "potential" human being, but rather a Human Being with Potential!
Adoption shows mercy for the unborn child in your womb.
At an early gestational age the unborn feel and respond to pain.
The 8 week+ unborn baby feels real physical pain during an abortion.
Abortion methods of starvation, burning, poisoning, dismemberment, and cranial puncturing at delivery
are all done without giving pain medication to the baby.
As Jews we cannot inflict this torture on innocents.
Choosing adoption for your baby saves him from a violent, painful death by abortion.
“Where Hitler compelled people to do the killing, today millions of people choose to abort their babies of their free will. …If we let this go on, what is now a matter of choice could very easily become mandatory…"If we are not pro-life, we are against our own survival.” Mrs. Lore Maier, deceased.
Mrs. Lore Maier, was the first Executive Director of Heartbeat International, as a full-time volunteer. German-born, Mrs. Maier was the only survivor of her family of six in Nazi Germany. She was a court recorder during the Nuremburg trials and knew how the killing had escalated, with the “imperfect” being the first victims.
There is simply no doubt that even the early embryo is a human being. All its genetic coding and all its features are indisputably human. As to being, there is no doubt that it exists, is alive, is self-directed, and is not the the same being as the mother–and is therefore a unified whole.
Bernard Nathanson, Former Abortionist in his book, The Hand of God. Clinic Quotes
The Lord called me when I was in the womb, before my birth He had pronounced my name.
