comment Why is a woman allowed to get pregnant?
I wouldn't say we are allowed to die. We try very hard to avoid it and do it against our will. Should we act the same regarding pregnancy (try very hard to avoid it)?

The Ran is the only thing hear which seems on point, and I'm not sure that even it is enough justification to put herself in danger.

You can edit your post to undupe it or emphasize the non-dupe part and how it's not duped. Also we can consider merging the answers one way or the other.

comment Orthodox Judaism's influence on political opinions of its practictioners
@Jake And all of us are crazy to some degree. What you didn't account for is someone being Liberal without cognitive dissonance because you apparently can't even see such an option.

comment Orthodox Judaism's influence on political opinions of its practictioners
Summary: Objectively, Orthodox Jews are Repulican because to be Democratic and Orthodox means you are crazy. (I'm just waiting for another answer to come along and say the exact opposite.)

comment Orthodox Judaism's influence on political opinions of its practictioners
I tend to agree with @IsaacMoses and given that there are already 3 other close votes (so I'm not overly asserting my mod-powers), I'm putting this on hold for now. I think the above discussion should be moved to a Mi Yodeya Meta post where others can voice there positions in an organized fashion.

comment תעשה vs עשה (Ta'aseh vs Assei)
"when applicable" Why is this case an applicable one? Why aren't you asking about עשו or יעשה or עושות? You can claim it's allowed as much as you want, but unless you explain why your question is sufficiently interesting, no one will care much about it.
