“Every woman I know has had one,” a secular Jewess said to me today. “It’s just something that a woman goes through. All of my mother’s friends. None of them wanted one.”

In my experience Jewish women feel a lot less guilt about abortion, pre-marital sex and oral sex than do their Christian sisters.

I remember talking to my secular Jewish girlfriend in 1993. We hadn’t been safe.

“What would happen if you got pregnant?” I asked.

“I’d just get rid of it,” she said. “I probably wouldn’t even tell you. I’d know you’d rather not be bothered so you could get on with your morally important work of ethical monotheism and Dennis Pragerism.”
