Does promoting the advancement of women in society include preventing abortion?
The woman is the one who is the first to recognize in her body the presence of a new human being. She is the first to be invited to welcome it freely. She is the first to propose that others also welcome it.
To promote the dignity of women is then also to restore the value of the mother's irreplaceable role in society. Instead of blaming those who have children, or of spending oneself in byzantine discussions about the existence or non-existence of the maternal instinct, we have to create the conditions in which women really have the possibility of being mothers, even if they do not want to or cannot give up their profession.
