Rabbi Eliyahu lamented abortion and cautioned that abortion on demand raises ethical questions about the premise of the sin of murder.
“The meaning of this is that their court nullified the legal right of a mother to murder her kids, the right of a doctor to chop up a live fetus into pieces inside a woman’s body so it could be removed piece by piece.”
“We’re not talking about a woman who requires a life-saving procedure due to a medical condition. We’re talking about instances whereby the family planned to purchase a new car or go on vacation, and suddenly the woman discovers that she’s pregnant and far into her pregnancy. The law enabled her to kill the live fetus because of these lofty values. And that is what the US Supreme Court is set to cancel.”
“It’s important to say that if there’s a legal right to murder a fetus, why shouldn’t there be a legal right for a mother to kill her child as long as the child is less than one year old? That was the status quo in Greece, Rome, and many Arab countries before Mohammed. It was legal to bury children alive, as long they were small.”
“The US Supreme Court justices are right to rule that a mother or father has no right to murder, nor does any ruler have it, period.”
