A Florida synagogue, Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor, filed a lawsuit challenging the state’s 15-week abortion ban, arguing that the policy interferes with the Jewish community’s ability to practice its faith. The lawsuit is filed in state court and cites the Florida Constitution’s religious freedom protections rather than federal ones. The synagogue argues that Florida’s abortion policy enshrines into law conservative Christian teachings about when life begins. Daphne Lazar Price, who heads the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance and teaches Jewish law at Georgetown, said that “in Jewish law, or halacha, a fetus becomes a person at birth – not at conception, not at a certain number of weeks. And until then, this potential life should not be allowed to threaten an actual one.” She said that abortion is sometimes a requirement – it is a religious action – to have to terminate a pregnancy. And denying the right is a violation of religious liberty. The lawsuit contends that under Jewish teaching, abortion “is required if necessary to protect the health, mental or physical well-being of the woman.”

“We’d have to choose between practicing Judaism and this law,” said Rabbi Barry Silver of Congregation L’Dor Va-Dor to McClatchy. Jewish teachings say that abortion is permitted in many cases and even required in some.
