(38) "Yet No Harm Follow": The Argument that a Fetus is Less Human than its Mother

Exodus 21:22-23 offers a very different take from that which we saw yesterday: namely, that a fetus is treated as something far less than a full human being. Join David and Scott for our continuing discussion about abortion, Jewish law, and modern legislation.

(39) Abortion, Manslaugher, and Murder

As they further dissect Exodus 21:22-23, David and Scott discover an important distinction between manslaughter and murder. What impact does this have upon our discussion of abortion?

(40) Capital Punishment and a Lesson About Abortion

As Morning Drive Bible continues its discussion about abortion, Scott offers a Talmudic source that seems to indicate that a fetus in its mother's womb is a part of the mother's body, not an independent person. Does this mean that Jewish law is pro-choice?

(41) Violating the Sabbath to Save a Fetus

The laws of the Sabbath are very strict, but a classic tenet is that one can violate those laws in order to save a life. Moreover, Jewish law allows us to save a fetus on the Sabbath even if the mother's life is not in danger. Does that mean that a fetus is a full human being?

(42) Is a Fetus a "Life"?

Some Jewish sources seem to imply that a fetus is a life; others that it's part of the mother's body. Are these sources all disagreeing with each other, or do they together offer a nuanced and complex understanding of the nature of an unborn child?

(43) Defining "Life Threatening" Broadly

While Jewish law certainly doesn't give carte blanche in terms of permitting abortion, there are some authorities who define "saving the mother's life" - which is a reason to allow abortion - in a broad manner. Listen to David and Scott continue their important discussion about abortion on today's Morning Drive Bible.

(44) A Pro-Choice Argument AGAINST Roe V. Wade

In the previous nine episodes of Morning Drive Bible, Scott has presented a somewhat more pro-choice argument than that offered by David; but in today's episode, he surprisingly explains why, despite his support for legalized abortion in some circumstances, he believes that Roe v. Wade is an act of judicial overreach by the Supreme Court. They also discuss how their approaches should be reflected in Israeli law.

(45) Abortion, Respectful Dialogue, and Separation of Church and State in Israel

Should Jewish law be definitive in determining the law in Israel, particularly as it relates to abortion? Join David and Scott for a respectful dialogue (and a discussion of that very respectful dialogue) as Morning Drive Bible continues its series on the serious and polarizing topic of abortion.

(46) Abortion: A Stumbling Block Before the Blind?

David adds a new wrinkle in the newest Morning Drive Bible discussion of abortion: apart from the legal question itself, should a Jewish person who is pro-life actively protest abortions? And would that be a Biblical mandate?

(47) Must Jewish People Protest Abortion?

If Jewish law prohibits "placing a stumbling block before the blind" - that is, aiding and abetting prohibited activity - does this mean that Jewish people should actively protest pro abortion laws in the United States?
