It would be very hard for me to separate my whole moral compass from what I take from the history of the Jewish people. I think that the values I was taught as a child are values that are very, very consistent with Jewish ethics. I certainly don't associate them with Jewish ritual of any kind, [but] I do with the basic ethic on which our people was raised. If we were to get more specific than that, I think justice is a very big part of the Jewish ethic, and I feel that justice is fundamental to the whole family planning and reproductive health movement. Justice for women, for poor women, justice for families all over the world.
