Is The Torah Pro-Life or Pro-Choice

With this new Alabama law which outlaws most kinds of abortions, I have observed that the Orthodox Jewish community is more diverse in their opinions on abortion than I had previously imagined. I have heard many argue that being anti abortion is a Christian thing, and that halacha / Judaism is much more lenient on abortions. I won't lie, I found this to be very surprising.

Horayos 7b – A Deeper Understanding of Abaye and Rava

I felt that a deeper understanding of the מחלוקת between רבא and אביי re: whether the case of the High Priest instructing differently from the Sanhedrin must be in two different place - would be very beneficial - so I started going through an important קרן אורה on the topic. Because this is outside

Throwing Meat to Dogs

In last week's Parsha, the Torah tells us that one shouldn't eat an animal that has been killed (by means other than kosher slaughtering).

You shall be holy people to Me: you must not eat flesh torn by beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs.
