The Fetus Sees and Feels - Rabbi Zamir Cohen
The Sages had an oral tradition that a fetus has a special sense and knowledge of the world around it. Based upon this, perhaps we can say that sharp fetal movements, reoccurring whenever the mother passes by a certain place, actually tell us something about the nature of the fetus itself
Question: To the Rav: We have a family of sixteen kids and one on the way, Baruch Hashem BLi Ayin Hara. Purim is approaching and my budget is a little tight this year. Usually the expenses on Purim are astronomical and I need to cut down somewhere. My wife feels that we put as much effort as possible into making Purim fun for the kids, so she asked if maybe I could cut down on the Machatzit HaShekel. It is only a minhag and it ends up costing alt. How much do I actually have to give?

What is the purpose of the foreskin (orlah)?
I know beyond all shadow of a doubt that G-d did not create anything in vain (that is, everything has a purpose, it seems to me that such a statement exists in the Talmud).

The Day from Which the Fetus is considered a Person
Scientists Discover: “We do not know much about the development of the brain of the fetus… until about the fortieth day of life, at which point the basic structure of the brain is in place, and it becomes possible to discern slight electrical activity.” Yet Thousands of years ago the Mishnah already gave us this exact answer!
Abortion - Unnecessary!
You ask yourself: What's going on here? On the one hand people make a huge effort to bring another child into the world. And on the other, with a wave of our hand, we are destroying the lives of tens of thousands of fetuses?
