Background

The Anti-Defamation League is aware of the sensitive and emotional nature of the abortion issue and recognizes that various religious faiths and groups within religious faiths hold divergent views regarding the religious, moral, and theological aspects to the abortion debate. We recognize that each religious group in our society has a right to express its view concerning abortion, to explain that view, and to try to persuade others to accept that view. ADL sees the issue as a matter of religious freedom and of individual liberty, consistent with a free and open democratic society.  The League supports the right of every woman to make a decision whether to have an abortion under the guidelines established by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade and opposes any effort to undermine or abrogate that decision.
