Finally, after hundreds of years of Catholic domination and intimidation, a country in South America that stands up for women's reproductive choice! Uruguay gives women the right to an abortion.
Now if only they start investigating Catholic priests in South America they way they do in Europe and America. We might find out the Church's true moral compass.
I really wonder sometimes if part of the Catholic Church's fanatic prohibition against abortion rights and birth control is simply so that their priests have a steady supply of young poor children to take under their wing and abuse . . . There are simply too many stories of priests abusing children for there not to be some sort of connection.
