    In 2014, the government of Israel will pay to abort babies for any woman aged 20 to 33 regardless of the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy if, as expected, a health commission’s recommendations are instituted.

    Government health officials expect to pick up the tab for 6,300 or so abortions over the course of the year, reports Haaretz. The total cost of all the procedures will be approximately $4.5 million. The estimated cost per abortion will be just over $700 (about 2,500 Israeli shekels).

    Israel received roughly $3.1 billion in aid from the United States in 2013…..

    Military aid. Not healthcare aid.

    Foreign military aid is still unconstitutional. Not only that but it's a form of socialism. The US govt coerces money from American taxpayers to give to other countries.

    I guess socialism is okay with you so long as it supports your neocon agenda. Right TND?

    Foreign military aid frees up money to fund abortions. Directly or indirectly the US is paying for Israeli abortions.

    Socialism.....surely you don't think it is that deep. It is about buying and maintaining "friendships" and allies in various regions. We have for many years supported various "governements" for our own purposes. Is that a discussions worth having.....yes. But socialism, cmon dude.

    I agree crabtownboy, every dollar in military aid we grant, frees up their "own" dollars to be used as they determine. But then again, don't we do the very same thing right here at home?

    Yes. He wouldn't argue that the federal government funds Planned Parenthood abortions, because they use "private money" for those. But if they didn't get federal $$$, they couldn't use contributions to cover the cost of abortions.

    The difference is that Israel would provide these abortions at their own federal cost whether they were getting U.S. foreign military aid or not. Planned Parenthood couldn't afford to do as many abortions as they do without federal tax dollars bolstering their other "family planning" services.

    You may be right, they very well could, and probably would provide such, even without military aid from the US. Issues today are very complex, aren't they?

    Yeah socialism using government force to extort money from some to to give to others. Works the same whether the extortion money is given to Americans or foreigners.

    It's just another form of welfare and control.

    Foreign aid is unconstitutional which = illegal the fact that we have been doling out money extorted from American citizens to give to foreign countries for many years does not make it legal.

    It is not quite the same. No one gives us aid to free up other money for anything.

    But we have given Israel a blank check for too long and our completely one-sided mid-east policy has resulted in us having many problems that we would not have if we had followed a balanced foreign policy.

    Not one penny should go to foreign aid. When our deficit is so high, not one penny. There is no provision for it in the Constitution. How much foreign aid has Israel ever given us?

    There should be no aid to Israel or any other nation, abortion or not.

    Israel dates to President Truman so I would like to know what the Democrats intend to do about Israel. It seems to me that all aid to Israel should be stopped. However, Islam still needs to be contained and we need to find sources of oil outside of Islamic countries.

    But they're God's chosen people. You all don't want the curse of Gen 12:3 to come down upon us, do you?

    Actually, we give plenty of money to Israel's enemies, as well.

    Last estimate I've seen is 4X as much money goes to Israel's enemies.
