The Catholic Church, anti-woman as usual.

Once again the Catholic Church shows that it prefers that women die to having control over their own bodies.

PAMPLONA, Colombia - In this tradition-bound Roman Catholic town one day in April, two young women did what many here consider unthinkable: pregnant and scared, they took a cheap ulcer medication known to induce abortions. When the drug left them bleeding, they were treated at a local emergency room - then promptly arrested.

The Catholic Church is an organization that does whatever it can to stamp out women's rights to self-determination. The Catholic Church cannot be reformed from within. If you have to believe in magic Jesus and hocus pocus there are plenty of liberal Protestant sects you can join.

There is no excuse for any self-respecting woman to support the Roman Catholic Church.
