From Cath Elliot’s article about how religion makes life a living hell for women:
To the men of religion, women’s lives simply do not matter: "respect for life" never ever means "respect for a woman’s life."
And they show it every chance they get. From disowning the mother of a child rape victim to getting upset when mothers are not shunned by society. Women, unless we fit some extremely narrow male defined definition of women, simply do not matter.
