Don't omit religion in women's rights

Success - Article sent! close

This is in response to several articles that question the religious "take" on women's rights. But what is the real problem here?

Abortion: A human life in the womb is killed in an inhumane way by an abortionist with the permission of the mother. The "right to life" of conceived human life is ignored by the mother, by the abortionist, by the government and seemingly by most of society.

The Catholic Church and many other religions recognize human life, no matter what stage of development, worthy of dignity, respect and protection. Yes, a woman has rights over her own body, but once she is pregnant, there are two.

Killing the most vulnerable and innocent is wrong and violates everything that is human about us.
