In this episode, Joel and Carl discuss a deeply challenging and often overlooked topic: abortion in Israel. They shed light on the permissive Israeli law and culture surrounding abortion and the staggering number of abortions that have taken place since 1948. They also touch on the lack of support and forgiveness for women who have had abortions in a society that actively encourages the practice. This conversation highlights the need for a stronger pro-life movement in Israel and the efforts of The Joshua Fund to support pro-life ministries financially and logistically. Join us as we dive into this significant issue and discover how we can stand with the unborn and support the healing and restoration of those affected by abortion.
