Abortions delay Messiah's arrival, Israel's chief rabbis say

The high number of abortions in Israel are delaying the arrival of the Messiah, Israel's two chief rabbis have said.

Published: 6:21PM GMT 29 Dec 2009

In a letter to Israel's faithful, Yona Metzger, the Ashkenazi chief rabbi, and his Sephardic colleague Shlomo Amar, said the country's high rate of terminations cause a "delay [of] the messianic redemption," according to a report on the Ynetnews website.

The letter condemned what the rabbis called "a veritable epidemic, which every year claims the lives of tens of thousands of Jews".

They said there are about 50,000 abortions a year in Israel, 20,000 of which are performed illegally.

[Blunderov] The Theology of Statistics? One Messiah every x thousand births? Who'da thunk? Or could there be (gasp) a hidden agenda? Back in the days of Apartheid the authorities were very keen on white births (Botha's Babies). They improved the "demographic" (something of much concern to Israel too) and provided much needed cannon fodder.

Hmmm....
