Whose Voice Will We Hear on Dobbs Decision Day?
✡︎ Shalom and Good Day, Friends ✡︎

We've heard from many different voices leading up to Dobbs Decision Day. We've added our voice to the mix, and we thank HaShem for the opportunities to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. As our June flyer notes, we hope the court will speak for innocent babies and vulnerable parents - not for abortion industry profiteers. Thank you, publishers and editors, who ran our flyer this month!

The Halachic hair splitting on abortion in Judaism continues to gather momentum as Dobbs Decision Day approaches. An article published on June 2, 2022 in the Jewish Press entitled, Clarifying Abortion In Halacha – And Reasons Not To Favor Overturning Roe V. Wade, disturbed many of our friends.
Clarifying Abortion In Halacha – And Reasons Not To Favor Overturning Roe V. Wade

We discussed the misleading and obfuscating views in the article with the rabbis on our Speakers List, as well as with our Monthly Mishpacha attendees on June 12th, deciding that we needed to respond with opinion pieces and letters, and submit them to the Jewish Press and other Jewish media.

The Jewish Press published our op-ed in the June 17, 2022 edition. View it here.

American Thinker accepted it, too!
A Jewish take on late-term abortion and Roe v. Wade

We are waiting to see if the Jewish Press publishes letters to the editor submitted by several of our friends in next week's issue. In the meantime, we are busy preparing for a new monthly show from Jerusalem and planning another healing opportunity on July 24th. Thank you to our new friends and supporters who have sent moral and financial support our way. We really appreciate you!

Cecily
May there be abundant peace from Heaven, and good life upon us and upon all Israel. Amen. 
We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a monthly show from the Jerusalem zoom room of Lowell Joseph Gallins's Root and Branch Torah Fellowship, a rare and extraordinary programming source of righteousness and truth.The show will be held on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our first guest will be Rabbi David Novak, the VP of the JPLF. We hope the show will help us grow a grass roots movement in Israel to bring an authentic Jewish pro-life message to Israelis. Please use the registration link to attend the webinar.


The show will be archived on the Rumble channel at https://rumble.com/user/LowellJosephGallin?q=root%20and%20branch&sort=date
Pro-life thought leader Stephanie Gray, director of Love Unleashes Life, presents us with three things to remember when talking about this question.

Though we don't endorse political candidates or donate to political campaigns, we do inform our readers about the views of those running for office.


We would like to introduce Leora Levy, Senate candidate in the state of Connecticut. Leora is a conservative Jewish woman who respects life. She has a tough race ahead of her, running against Democrat pro-abortion incumbent Richard Blumenthal.

Leora says, "I am the only principled conservative in the Republican primary and the only one who can defeat Blumenthal. I am pro-life, pro-2A, the only woman who voted for Pres. Trump and was nominated by Pres. Trump to be Ambassador to Chile. My mother and grandparents escaped the Nazis but went to Cuba because they could not get into the US. I escaped Castro’s Communist Cuba with my family in 1960. I thank God every day that I am an American citizen. I stand up against CRT, SEL, DEI, all the woke Socialist policies that the Democrats are pushing on our children through the education system and on the rest of us through our businesses and our culture. Leora will drop into our Monthly Mishpacha meeting either in July or August to share more about her candidacy. Her website is https://leoraforct.com
