    and life-threatening are exactly the same thing, as in the cancer example you gave above.

    What about a woman whose pregnancy causes her kidneys to fail? If she goes onto conventional dialysis she's got a 1 in 4 chance of dying in the first year, leaving her infant without a mother. That's still death by superstition and negligence, just delayed.

    I can't comprehend the kind of thinking that regards women as no more than livestock. I just can't. Thank god I'm an atheist, because the thought of being reincarnated as a woman in a place like that terrifies me.

    Surely the influence of the Church is waning as the younger generation comes up? The Vatican is criminal for requiring this but I don't suppose they'll ever see the blood on their hands.
