Divine Code for November 27, 2022
Today: Page 315
Topic 1:11 -- 1:13
An abortion is only allowed when the mother's life is in danger.
It is not allowed when the mother has emotional justifications for not wanting the pregnancy.
If it is medically proven that the fetus will be miscarried or not born alive an abortion is permitted up to 40 days after conception, but always in consultation with doctors and rabbis. After that, it is not permitted, but a person is not liable to capital punishment from a court of law.
One is also not liable to capital punishment if one terminates a pregnancy of an implanted embryo up to 40 days after conception. But one is liable to punishment by the hand of G-d.
