Modern Rabbis Permitting Murder

Some Rabbis are clearly corrupted by our decadent culture. How come we have Rabbis like Eliezer Waldenberg “permitting” aborting Down Syndrome babies, “extenuating circumstances”, and the like, apart from danger to the mother? The Gemara is very clear in many places that abortion is part-murder.

But as attitudes worsen around us, Jews learn from the Non-Jew. And pretend the Torah itself permits murder.

The Motion Picture Production Code (circa 1963) states: “The subject of abortion shall be discouraged, shall never be more than suggested, and when referred to shall be condemned.” (from “Coming Apart” by Charles Murray)

I highly recommend Rabbi Brand’s tiny book on abortion here (Hebrew).
