Israel’s Chief Rabbi Allows Impoverished Woman to Use Surrogate to Carry Her Child

In what is described as a “pioneering ruling,” Israel's Chief Rabbi has allowed a poor woman that went through five abortions to use a married surrogate to carry her child. The current Jewish and Israeli laws do not permit married women to serve as surrogates, and the decision is viewed as representing a breakthrough. The 1966 Surrogates Law says that only unmarried women can serve as surrogates.  Source. Haim Levinson, Jewish Scene, netnews.com.
