The Catholic Church decides for women…again

The “official” word is in and the Catholic Church has declared it a sin for a woman to do anything but have babies.  Isn’t that just peachy?

Abortion is wrong, stem cell research is wrong, in-vitro fertilization is wrong, the morning after pill is wrong and birth control is wrong.  Geesh, I wonder how many women were in on the decision making process concerning this issue?  Well, since it is also a sin for a woman to be a priest – much less a bishop or in any other real leadership position – I bet the number of women involved in this decision are pretty close to zero.

As such, I wish someone would tell me once and for all why – as a woman – I should take anything that comes from the leadership of the Catholic Church seriously.  And please don’t tell me they speak for God cause I am way past that nonsense too.

    I must say, the Catholic Church is most certainly right when they don’t want women to murder their unborn children. They have no right.

    As for the rest, well, birth control is fine in my opinion, but the morning after pill should NEVER be used as a method of contraception. It should only be used in real emergencies.

    Oh and no, I don’t think women should be priests either (and before you mention it, i’m agnostic on the whole religion thing).
