1.1.2 Suicide Deliberately taking your own life It is wrong - you don't have the right to destroy life 73CE 1000 Jews commited suicide in Masada to prevent themselves from becoming slaves I am giving you the choice between life and death, between Gods blessing and G-D's cross - Deuteronomy Not 'Suicide' if you have a mental health problem, don't think straight If a person commits suicide their burial rights are different. They cannot be buried near family and have to be 6 feet away from another jewish grave. However is someone is Anuss - not held responsible for there action they are buried normally. Explain Jewish attitudes towards suicide. All Jews believe suicide is wrong. Only G-d decides who dies and when ' individuals do not have the right to destroy life' also Deuteronomy from the Torah In the Talmud it states that suicide is wrong. Someone who commits, their burial rights are different.
1.2 Animals in Research
1.2.1 Can involve - Cosmetic testing, drug effects and smoking and practicing medical procedures
1.2.2 Ethical Issue? - Yes because humans are possibly saying that they are above animals, that animals have little rights. Also how they are treated, necessary?
1.2.3 Judaism does allow animal research because they don't believe animals to be equal to humans. But when animals are needed their suffering must be kept to a minimum. No pointless tests. Hole - They must think they have some rights otherwise they would allow numerous test? But when used for testing makeup or to please humans it is wrong. Many jews believe that students testing on animals is wrong because most testing can be done on computers. G-ds teachings require you to refrain from inflicting unnecessary harm to animals and to help lessen pain when they are suffering.
1.2.4 Rights Judaism teaches that animals are a important part of creation people do have a responsibility to care for animals. However human life is more valuable. Animals should also rest on the Sabbath. Some people believe that animals should have rights because they show emotions and express feelings.
1.2.5 You shall not muzzle an ox while it is threshing. Deuteronomy 25:4 [Torah] A righteous man knows the needs of his beast. Proverbs 12:10a [Tenakh] It is forbidden to cause pain to any animal. Maimonides
1.3 Abortion
1.3.1 Life is a gift from God It is sacred Embryo has life - Abortion is Murder If mothers life in danger - Jews will then allow abortion. Both Orthodox and Reformed Jews agreed that if mothers life is in danger abortion should take place.

1.3.3 Orthodox Some Rabbis still don't allow abortion if rape or when the foetus is abnormal, even if the law of the land allows it.
1.3.4 A Jewish women may consult her Rabbi before she is going to have an abortion, too check if she is allowed to go ahead with it. She would consult him because abortion relies on Rabbi teachings and interpretation of beliefs.
1.3.5 IVF Part D Question Any Jew may be against fertility treatment, just like any other person, because of there opinion, however they may also be against it due to poor experience. Jewish teaching teach that the seed should to be wasted so obtaining the seed outside the body may be to some Jews as wasting the seed for its intended purpose and that fetilization is taking place outside of the body. Also Jews express the fact that no 3rd party donor should be used because then the child is not seen as the son/daughter of the women. Then there is no problem with parentage. Then there is the problem with IVF of is it taking the decision away from G-D. Some Jews do reject the idea of IVF because of the validity of fertilisation and the problem with the seed. Also there is a problem with surrogacy, who is the childs mother, if they do or don't have a Jewish mother who is required to bring them up.
