"Semmelweis noted that the student doctors were coming to the maternity ward directly from the dissecting room, having just completed autopsies on women who had died from puerperal fever…"

That would not have happened IF doctors had followed the rules in the Torah concerning contact with dead bodies:

‘The one who touches the corpse of any person shall be unclean for seven days. Numbers 19:11

Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:19
