“My passionate, lifelong advocacy for abortion rights is inextricably tied to my Jewish faith. Missouri legislators codified their personal religious beliefs about when life begins, depriving Missourians of critical reproductive health care and undermining the separation of church and state that is essential to religious freedom. Justice and equality are also core principles of my faith – which Missouri’s abortion bans disparage by creating inequities in abortion access. These bans will not end abortion. They only make it dangerous and life threatening for the poor and most vulnerable. These disparities also go against the core teachings of Jewish tradition.”
