Just Shmooze / Re: Thoughts on abortion, religion, and morality

3. Whether having a law that is in line with Halacha in 99% of cases is good, even if it will create burdens for the 1% of cases where Halacha either mandates or allows for abortions (in consult with poskim).

I think this hits the nail on the head. The pro-life would restrict these 1% cases. Without laws restricting abortions you are not forced to have one. But with them you wouldn't be able to have one if you need one. Even if the number is only 1% those cases would be imposed while the others wouldnt.

Religious matter? Would you argue that the government should look away in a case where a man shoots his neighbor because it is a religious matter? After all, the sin of murder is based on the concept that man is created in G-d's image. Not even a liberal would argue that. In fact, one of the 7 Laws of Noah is to establish court systems, so they better not look away.

The argument of the sanctity of life is very different them murdering your neighbor, as is abortion.

Even the Torah does not equate the two. (Only one has a din of redef until the baby is born)

I hear the arguments and I cannot make up my mind because each side is so extreme.

On a side note I am dumbfounded how this has become such a important topic in american politics and culture. Americans are usually surrounded by lowest cultural objectives and here we are discussing an extremely difficult and nuanced debate on morality/ethics/governance.

My personal position is (still formulating but) I do believe in the sanctity of life but its probably not the government's place to protect that because it is a religious matter.  If someone made a horrible mistake, I think they should be able to get abortion early on- not late in the game. (pretty much on the side of roe I guess)

But Halacha clearly doesn't view abortion as murder, so who says it's in the 7 mitzvos Bnai Noach? If a person causes a fetus to die, he pays a fine (Parashas Mishpatim).

That is an accidental senario. The Rambam would probably be the best guide for the jewish position....

1. Will they ever expand their network to have routes along eastern seaboard?
2. Will they allow for multi-partner award bookings?
3. When can we start redeeming miles for SQ awards?
4. Will they ever allow redemptions to Barter island on Ravn?

Boll and Branch has had pillows on sale and they are incredible. (I think 120 for a king) down from 175.

I have also had luck with amazon pillows for 20 a peice. (They were so good we would test our selves to see if we could differentiate btw the B&B and it, sometimes failing).

Is this a good deal?
