Bible, Talmud Tell Jewish
Prohibition Against Abortion

By RABBI SAMUEL FOX
(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)

Traditional Judaism pro-
hibits abortion. A number of
authoritative rabbinic
sources have traced this
prohibition to statements in
the Bible.
The Talmud quotes one
source dating back from the
earliest centuries in the
Common Era (Rabbi
Ishmael) as having derived
the prohibition against
abortion from the biblical
command in the Book of
Genesis (9:6) Where one of
the seven laws given to the
generation after the deluge
stated: "Whoso sheds the
blood of a person within a
person shall his blood be
shed."
"Who is a person within a
person?" the Talmud asks.
This is the fetus within the
body of the mother"
(Sanhedrin 57b). A rabbi of
a much later period in his-
tory derived this prohibi-
tion from a verse in
Leviticus 24:21 where the
Bible states that "He that
kills a person shall be put to
death." This was seen as in-
cluding one who kills a fetus
(Rabbi Meir Simha of
Dvinsk). -
While the abortionist
would not be executed by
the hands of the court, his
crime is serious enough
to be dealt with by the
heavenly court which

would eventually punish
him.
Rabbi Yair (in his book,
Chavath Yair, 31) claims
that destroying a fetus
comes within the context of
the verse in the Bible which
states the terrible condition
of "slaying the children
under the clefts of the rocks"
(Isaiah 57:5).
This same author offers
an additional verse from the
Bible to strengthen this
prohibition which states
that the Almighty "did not
create the world to be a
waste . . . . He formed it to
be inhabited" (Isaiah
45:18). Abortion would,
then, be putting the world to
waste.
