I wonder what he thinks constitutes an assault against a woman?
No wonder women get upset when anti-abortion laws are forced upon them! These laws are, essentially, pro-bullying laws, which constitute unwarranted (and excessively) invasive and subjective force against women, in my opinion. In fact, I would argue that a woman holds exclusive rights to her body...those rights include the right to excise foreign matter...since a fetus is comprised partly of foreign DNA and the woman's DNA, she (and only she), therefore, has the right to decide to terminate her pregnancy. The courts simply have no jurisdiction on such matters...and neither do the Church and politicians.
