NCJW Rabbis for Repro Propaganda Campaign
✡︎ Shabbat Shalom ✡︎

The National Council of Jewish Women(NCJW) recently launched an aggressive propaganda campaign called Rabbis For Repro designed to convince Jew and Gentile that Judaism is a pro-abortion religion. So far this month, two rabbis published similar opinions flavored with personal testimonials that doubled down on the theme that abortion is a religious right.

In the Houston Chronicle Reform Rabbi Joshua Fixler: Opinion: I'm a rabbi, and abortion is a religious right.

In the Atlanta Jewish Times Orthodox Rabbi Melissa Scholten-Guttierez: Abortion is a Religious Right

You can contact Rabbi Fixler at his temple website:
through his administrative assistant, Alisha Klapholz:
or the temple's phone number 713-529-5771, or mailing address: Rabbi Joshua Fixler c/o Congregation Emanu El 1500 Sunset Blvd. Houston, TX 77005.

You can contact Rabbi Scholten-Guttierez at

Bonnie Chernin wrote an excellent commentary on Rabbi Fixler's opinion piece and the propaganda campaign.
It's posted on our blog at:

Also, LifeNews, published an article on Rabbi Fixler's Houston Chronicle piece, and has agreed to provide a Jewish pro-life view by interviewing Rabbi Novak and Rabbi Bovit, who are on our board of directors. We'll share that with you when it becomes available.

Many years ago, I had the privilege to meet Dr. Abraham Twerski, zt"l. He was greatly admired in Pittsburgh for his contribution to the Jewish community and his work with the recovering community. His final inspiring message was written shortly before he died.

Not Alive? Subhuman? Not a Person? Really?
May there be abundant peace from Heaven, and good life upon us and upon all Israel. Amen.

"We must always take sides.
Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
