    • News

Welcome to Times Will Tell, The Times of Israel’s weekly feature podcast.

This week we’re speaking to Dr. Noya Rimalt, a professor of law at the University of Haifa who is at the forefront of the struggle for reproductive rights in Israel.

Rimalt speaks about the history of abortions in Israel. Women can have abortions at local clinics and hospitals, but must undergo a complicated permissions process that often makes them seem "mad or bad," says Rimalt.

She talks about her involvement in this battle for personal reasons and as a feminist law professor. Rimalt also discusses the passage of the recent new regulations that slightly ease the Israeli process, just as Roe vs. Wade was being overturned in the US.
