Many American Catholics, priests, and pro-lifers cite to how the Orthodox Jews are pro-life. But that is just not true.

The UOJC has something called an Institute for Public Affairs (IPA) and the IPA formulates the issues for involvement in American politics by the Orthodox Jews.

A quick review of the IPA’s website reveals a number of links in support of embryonic stem cell research and cloning of human beings. For instance, the first link is to an article by Dr. Daniel Eisenberg dated January 8, 2001 and entitled “Stem Cell Research in Jewish Law.”

The article provides the justification under Judaism for killing innocent human beings during the course of embryonic stem cell research: Dr. Eisenberg writes “If the pre-embryo may be destroyed, it certainly may be used for research purpose and other life-saving work.”[xxi]

Dr. Eisenberg undertakes a long and convoluted analysis under Jewish law to arrive at this conclusion, and of great note is this comment: “While the practical aspects of the Jewish approach to abortion are relatively agreed upon, the exact source and nature of the prohibition [to taking of pre-born life] is not. Depending on the origin of the prohibition, the application to the pre-embryo will differ.”[xxii] In other words, the Jews cannot find the authority for giving life to the unborn, and the tenets of Judaism are up for debate – a not unlikely result given that the Jews reject Christ, the Logos, and with Him, the Advocate.

What can be given in one argument based on interpretation of arcane documents can be taken in another argument based on a different interpretation. The practical result (and, according to Dr. Eisbenberg the Jews agree on certain practical approaches) is support for embryonic stem cell research and the creation and support of an entire industry engaged in the slaughter.
