My wife and I are in the process of divorcing at the rabbinate. We have just discovered she is pregnant. Can I – or the rabbinical court – force her to have an abortion because we are getting divorced ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 23 June, 2022
No! A husband has no right to force his wife to have an abortion ,whether or not they are in the middle of divorce proceedings. There is no connection between the two.
