Halacha - learning in college
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: i am taking a biology class in college and i was told that i will be required to know the human reproduction system. i flipped through the text book and i found that the ch. of reproduction is extremely graphic leaving out no details. to what point am i permited to learn about the way the human body reproduces?
Answer: That is largely a personal question. The actual knowledge itself is permitted, but you have to be honest with yourself regarding what thoughts learning this material may cause you.
