← The Invisible Burka: Why women need secularism

Corylus's Avatar Jump to comment 3 by Corylus

Well said, Elisabeth.

Women most certainly do need secularism.

I can’t help but think of my niece. She is far too young to understand the repercussions that could come if the radicals are able to successfully eradicate the right of women to direct their own reproduction. She is too young to understand the full implications of this new ‘war on the womb’ on her future. Yet, it will be she, not me, who will pay the ultimate price of religious enslavement to the biological heritage of being female. She doesn’t understand.

She will work it out ... and then she will get cross ... and then she will get very proud indeed of her aunt.
