Episode 41 of my Root and Branch Medical War Crimes series is now available here. I tore two recent Erev Rav articles to shreds, one promoting the killing of unborn children, and the other arguing that the cynically named World Health Organization should utterly control us in the event of "health emergencies" that they conveniently get to declare.
On that note, an organization that the Orthodox world holds in great esteem, Aish HaTorah, is exposing itself as just another Erev Rav Trojan horse. (Organizations that people hold in great esteem, like Chabad, Hatzalah, and the State of Israel, make ideal Trojan horses.)
Check this out: aish.com/abortionpanel.
An organization that purports to spread Torah all over the world is pretending that killing unborn children is a "moral issue", not a matter of Jewish law, pretending that it doesn't matter if we have presumably widely divergent views on the matter, and is pretending that three secular-looking women who are promoted as a journalist, an activist, and a philosopher should be considered authorities on the matter.
Aish HaTorah asks if killing unborn children ("abortion") is "a moral choice or a medical one", as if it isn't actually a matter of Jewish law, period. "Beyond belief" indeed. No doubt they were pushing the death shots, too.
I looked up the panelists. One isn't even Jewish, one is a radical feminist, and the other seems to be marginally observant. This is what Aish HaTorah is offering the world on a fundamental matter of Jewish law. I'll let others try to unravel if they were always a Trojan horse, but they're definitely Erev Rav now.
