We know better now

In Jewish tradition, we remember the yortseit, the anniversary of the death of loved ones. We remember what we loved and valued about them, and we think of how to continue those qualities in our own lives.

June 24 is the yortseit of Roe v Wade, the right of bodily autonomy and the right of doctors to do their jobs. We never thought this day could come, but it did, and it presaged even more attacks on bodily autonomy as evidenced in anti-gay and anti-trans laws in many states.

We were complacent – but we know better now. If you are looking for a way to help, please consider donating the National Council of Jewish Women’s Jewish Fund for Abortion Access at https://www.ncjw.org/act/action/donate-to-abortion-access/
