Abortion is none of your business

Abortion! If a woman decides to have an abortion, it’s none of my business! In a secular, democratic society it is also none of the government’s business. It should be strictly up to the woman, her spouse, her doctor and her spiritual adviser. To allow another person or persons to have control is unfair, undemocratic and dictatorial.

The religious right believes it’s their business. Their justification is one biblical sentence, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” I maintain that this doesn’t say I am my brother’s dictator! They should uphold their own principles and live by them. Forcing their principles on others is wrong.
