The Personal Is Political: NCJWSTL Decries Today’s Supreme Court Ruling

As a women’s organization, we know just how critical it is that people have access to the full range of reproductive healthcare services and that includes abortion. As a faith-based organization, we understand just how dangerous it is to let the religious beliefs of some influence public policy that makes medical decisions for all. By overturning Roe vs. Wade, the Court has prioritized the life of the fetus over the pregnant person, a violation of both Jewish law and tradition and of American religious liberty. We support the freedom to decide and have established a women’s emergency fund to assist those in need of help. Read the Statement for more information on the emergency fund.
