Only allowed to mothers in danger of loosing her life, or in cases of rape.

Conservative jews tend to allow greater latitude for abortions.
Causing an abortion on an unwilling women is considered a crime, but not because the fetus is considered a person.
Jewish law declared "A descendent of Noah who kills any human being, even a fetus in its mothers womb, is to be put to death" Abortion and Religions Two views on abortion Pro-choice: “that each and every human being, woman or man, deserves the opportunity to develop into the best she or he is capable of; that each individual be respected, however minimal or great their development may be” (Joyer 1) Pro-life: “that each and every human being, un-born, or born, deserves the opportunity to develop into the best she or he is capable of; that each individual be respected, however minimal or great their development may be” (Joyer 1) The world's view of Abortion According to the world life begins at viability Viability: The stage of the fetal development when the baby is "potentially able to live outside of the mothers womb." The world also views the owner of the "fetus" to be the mother. The world views an abortion as simply removing a blob of tissue from a mother, not killing a child.

Retrieved June 10, 2012, from http://www.abortionfacts.com/literature/literature_9430TR.asp Abortion Procedures. What abortion procedures are used during the first trimester? Methotrexate & Misoprostol (MTX): a medical abortion procedure used up to the first seven weeks of pregnancy. This medication combination is not as commonly used in the U.S. with the availability of mifepristone, which works more effectively for this use.
Mifepristone and Misoprostol: a medical abortion procedure used up to the first seven to nine weeks of pregnancy. It can also be referred to as RU-486, the abortion pill and Mifeprex.
Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA): a procedure used as early as 3 -12 weeks since the last period. Considered less invasive with only a local anesthesia being used on the cervix.
Aspiration: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate pregnancy up to 16 weeks from the last period. It can also be referred to as suction curettage, dilation and curettage (D & C) or vacuum aspiration. First, methotrexate tablets are taken by mouth or an injection of methotrexate is given by your doctor.
Methotrexate interferes with the growth of the placenta, which allows it to separate from the endometrium. Second, tablets of misoprostol are taken by mouth or inserted vaginally, usually 5 to 7 days later. Some doctors may give misoprostol buccally (dissolved between the gums and cheek). This medicine causes uterine contractions so that your body passes the uterine contents. The pregnancy usually ends at home within a day or two when the tissue from the uterus is passed. First, your doctor gives you a dose of mifepristone tablets by mouth. Mifepristone causes the placenta to separate from the endometrium. It also softens the cervix and increases uterine contractions to allow the uterine contents to pass.
Second, you take tablets of misoprostol by mouth or insert them vaginally, usually within 48 hours of mifepristone. Depending on the dose and how it is given, this could be as soon as 6 hours after the mifepristone Some doctors may give misoprostol buccally (dissolved between the gums and cheek). Misoprostol causes uterine contractions so that your body passes the uterine contents. Some clinics may have you stay for 4 hours after misoprostol is given, because if serious side effects occur, they usually occur in this time period and can then be treated. The pregnancy may end in the clinic or later at home. Some doctors allow their patients to take misoprostol at home and then the pregnancy ends (like a miscarriage) at home. What abortion procedures are used during the second trimester? Dilation & Curettage (D & C): a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy up to 16 weeks gestation. It is also referred to as suction curettage or vacuum aspiration.
Dilation & Evacuation (D & E): a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 16 weeks gestation.
Induction Abortion: a rarely performed surgical procedure where salt water, urea, or potassium chloride is injected into the amniotic sac; prostaglandins are inserted into the vagina and pitocin is injected intravenously. Step 1: with the aid of an ultrasound to guide the abortionist, a lethal dose of the heart medication Digoxin is injected into the baby’s heart directly through the woman’s abdomen. Digoxin gives the baby a fatal heart attack.
Step 2: After the Digoxin injection, the woman’s cervix is packed with laminaria, thin tampon-like sticks made of seaweed that expand the cervix gradually over the next day. The next day, the woman is repacked with larger laminaria sticks and given Misoprostol to prepare the woman for labor.
Step 3: The woman is given the drug Oxytocin, which induces contractions and the onset of labor. When the woman is about to have the baby each woman is taken into a room with a toilet and told to lean on the nurse and push the baby into the toilet.
Step 4: Once the dead baby is delivered, the woman is given a procedure called Dilatation and Curettage, or D& C. Here, a sharp edged spoon-shaped instrument is used to remove the remaining tissue, such as the afterbirth, from the uterus. What abortion procedures are used during the third trimester? Induction Abortion
Dilation and Extraction: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 21 weeks of gestation. This procedure is also known as D & X, Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression and Partial Birth Abortion. *This procedure is now considered against the law in the U.S. according to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 1995* The baby is first positioned for delivery through the birth canal. The baby is actually delivered feet first leaving only the head in the womb. An incision is then made into the base of the skull to make room for a suction tube. With the suction device, the baby's brain matter is suctioned out leaving the baby dead. http://www.numberofabortions.com/
