Are you Jewish? Have you had an abortion in the U.S. since 1973? If so, and you are over the age of 18, you are invited to participate in an online survey about your experiences. This research is documenting the stories and experiences of Jews who have had abortions by collecting the largest data set to-date of Jewish people who have had abortions. By surveying and interviewing people who identify as Jewish from around the United States, this study will demonstrate how these individuals interpret their own pregnancy terminations within their religious identity and commitments. This study will explore what role religion played in their decision to terminate a pregnancy, how their religious commitments have been affected by their decision to terminate, and whether they have experienced any stigma surrounding their decision to terminate.
Drs. Michal Raucher, Rachel Fryman, and Leora Scheinerman of Rutgers University are conducting this research study titled “Jews Who Have Had Abortions.” Participation entails completing an online survey that will take approximately 30 minutes. During the survey you will have the opportunity to express interest in a 45-minute phone interview as part of the research; if you express interest, you will be contacted by a member of the research team to schedule the interview. All your answers to this survey will be kept anonymous, and this link is anonymous. It cannot be tracked, and it cannot be used to identify respondents.
