Leading Rights Groups Launch 'Wave of Litigation' to Protect Abortion Access

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Planned Parenthood, and the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) on Wednesday filed lawsuits to challenge abortion restrictions in three states—the first of a promised "wave of litigation" aiming to protect women's access to healthcare around the country.

I believe that the efforts to protect abortion access is missing an important argument, and that is the right to freedom of religion. If you do even a basic google of the views that various religions have on this topic, you will find some are against all abortions even when the life of the mother is at risk, while others totally support a woman's right to choose what do do with her own body. So, restrictions on the right to choose are really a denial of the freedom to practice the religion that one chooses, or no religion at all.

My understanding of the Roe vs. Wade decision was that is was based on the right to privacy, but what about the freedom of religion?
