The near-complete ban of abortion in Alabama coupled with the proposed anti-abortion legislation spreading around the country bring into focus the destructive consequences visited upon women’s rights by literalist religious doctrine justified by science cum legislating morality. This position on abortion is rigid allowing no room for grey areas. No room for disagreement. Sharia has a contribution to make to the debate on this very personal and emotive issue.
