Why do women have right to take the life of another?
Roe v. Wade is in the news again. I’m just shy of 80 and have had a lot of time to think about this issue.
True, it’s a religious issue but I believe also a moral and legal one as well.
First, women as well as men have the right to determine what happens to their own body. Birth control should be available to all. I have seen ultrasounds of babies in the early stages of development. When does life begin? I’m not sure, but it must be very soon after conception.
Here is my problem: Why, because you are a woman, do you have the right to take the life of another human? This is not your body but rather the body of someone else. Should the government have a right/obligation to protect that life? Perhaps so. Maybe someone can explain it to me.
