So an observant Jewish woman would generally approach both the prospect of having an abortion, and more generally the prospect of finding herself in a situation where she feels she cannot bear to do otherwise, with dread. But a criminal dereliction of an inviolable duty, no, we generally wouldn't see it as that, and certainly not as the unqualified right of the state to rule on.
This makes sense and describes how I feel about it. Maybe deep down I'm Jewish.
