חומר בנושא הפלות ביהדות

שאלה:

I am a university student. I am interested in finding out about the success that Judaism has had in overcoming the ethical controversies of abortion. More specifically, are there certain social conflicts that abortion causes but that Judaism helps solve? Recent journal articles and other recent references would be of special interest.

תשובה:

See Encyclopedia of Jewish Medical Ethics, by Dr. Avraham Steinberg, "Abortion and Miscarriage," vol. I, p. 1 ff (especially pp. 9-18), where this issue is addressed at length from both the halachic and
social/ethical perspective..
