Divorce

For Judaism, divorce is not prohibited and in certain cases, it is encouraged. The jewish people accept divorce as a way of life. In biblical law, a husband has the right to divorce his wife, but a wife cannot initiate the divorce. About 1,000 years ago, decreed that a husband could no longer divorce his wife without her consent. Since the Jewish marriage is entered into by the issuance of a legal contract between husband and wife, it can be terminated only by the issuance of a legal writ nullifying the original contract.

Abortion

The judaism religion believes that potential human life is valuable and may not be terminated casually,but it does not have as much value as a life in existence. They believe that it is okay if it threatens the mothers life, but they neither ban abortion nor do they allow abortion "on demand."
