Extremely Powerful Story

Stories like this continually give me hope that there is good in this world filled with hate and hypocrisy.

The end of the story was moving and spiritually uplifting however I have been haunted by the thought that Israel allows abortions fro financial reasons, I knew for medical,how is it within Jewish law to allow this, and why would a family be allowed to abort a healthyJewish child, a Jewish soul, when surely if they could not have received financial assistance there are so many who can not have or would love to adopt an infant. Did I misunderstand something.?
