Pro-life group has uphill fight for life in abortion-supporting Israel

The United States is not the only nation where pro-lifers are trying to make a difference: A pro-life activist in Israel is trying to wake up a cold-hearted culture to what really cruelty really happens during an abortion.

"Israel, as a government, is quite liberal," says Sandy Shoshani, who leads a pregnancy ministry called Be’ad Chaim. "We have government-funded abortion through our national health insurance and you're able to have an abortion here until birth."

“Be’ad Chiam” is Hebrew and translates to “pro-life” in English.

Shoshani says Be'ad Chaim has hired an attorney to petition Israel's supreme court to end abortion at the point of viability, which is 24 weeks in Israel.

"Right now, abortion is considered like any other medical procedure,” she told American Family Radio. “Like having your nose fixed, or having a tummy tuck or something. So it's not even really a moral issue and we are pushing to create a moral issue."

Be’ad Chiam is also spreading its pro-life message on highway billboards and on public buses.

"We are doing our utmost to make a statement," said Shoshani. "We want to change people's public opinion about abortion here."

Shoshani made her comments on AFR's "The Hour of Intercession" program, hosted by pro-life activist Pastor Joseph Parker.
