The very situation where religious leaders publicly express different opinions on the matter is fundamentally Jewish, in my opinion. Well done to Rabbi Lau for taking a nuanced approach, highlight the complexity of the issue and consider the circumstances (of the women, the family, etc) for abortion. Words can kill as well, they shouldn't be spoken lightly. If Efrat's message is that they can help families financially, it should be done in a positive manner, which doesn't insinuate - catholic-style - that there is a simple ethical way out of abortion.
