The U.S. government boldly says that abortion is legal AND that capital punishment is legal as well. These are not human rights. Where in the Bible does the Lord say it is proper for a doctor or the state to take the life of anyone? I realize that there are examples in the Bible of that being done, but that doesn't make it a proper action. There are examples of all sorts of sin in the Bible, but that is not to say that these examples are ok. They are instead, examples of what NOT to do.
I was raised a Catholic and yes that church forbids the use of birth control, as well as the execution of any living human being. Obviously those things still exist on this earth, yes even by Catholics, but that doesn't make them acceptable in God's eyes.
