Reproductive Rights, Health & Justice

NCJW is committed to creating a world where all people, regardless of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, or immigration status, have the right to build their families and live their lives with dignity. Our Jewish values teach us that our reproductive freedoms are integrally bound to our religious liberty; we are committed to advancing the goals of reproductive justice so that every person can make their own moral and faith-informed decisions about their body, health, and family.

Until every person has the power to make their own informed decisions about their body, sexuality, and future, we cannot rest. Our Section continues to work with our partners and allies to advocate for legislation, to stand up and speak out at local demonstrations and marches, and to provide post-abortion comfort kits.

Abortion and Jewish Values Toolkit

This guide is for anyone interested in protecting abortion rights and access, from seasoned advocates to those newly introduced to how our Jewish values inform our work. The background information provides a necessary context for understanding the specifics of the Jewish messaging resources and the intersection of abortion rights with other critical issues. We then invite you to take action on proactive federal legislation and to engage with NCJW as you advocate on your own, with your friends, and in your community.

Share the Toolkit! We urge you to share the Toolkit far and wide — with your family and friends, with your social media network, with your rabbi and your lawmakers, and with partner organizations working on reproductive health, rights, and justice issues. Let them know abortion is a Jewish value.
 

 

 

 

 


 

Abortion access is a Jewish value — plain and simple. NCJW's Jewish Fund for Abortion Access, in partnership with the National Abortion Federation, puts this value into action: connecting real people who need abortions with the money they need to access care.

In April 2023, NCJW sponsored a powerful panel discussion entitled "Hot Topics in Social Justice: Fulfilling Our Mission to Help Women, Children & Families."  We had three speakers in the high-priority areas of Homelessness, Women’s Reproductive Rights, and Human Trafficking.  Krista Hollinger, COO of Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties, presented a great overview of "Advocacy in a Post-Roe World," which you can view here.
