A Jewish friend of mine (she converted to Judaism) posted this picture of a conversation on her Facebook.
I don’t like to engage with others’ posts on Facebook because you never know who will come fight you for asking questions. I don’t believe it made a good case for lack of insurance coverage violating freedom of religion but I am curious about some beliefs.
Is there anyone who knows enough about Jewish beliefs that they could explain some of this? I do not know the type of Judiasm represented here.
My questions are concerning, If a Jewish mother is forbidden from making a medical choice to save her child which risks her own life?
Also, do you know anyone who considers birth control pills as part of their religion?
Is the attitude about the pill being ok, but barrier methods being forbidden prevalent?
Thank you in advance.
