Here is a link to a good post by Teresa Collett addressing “The Religious Question and Abortion.” Collett addresses the line of questioning during the recent oral arguments in the Dobbs case by Justice Sotomayor who suggested that opposition to abortion is necessarily based on religion.
I have addressed this issue in this article.
Sotomayor’s suggestion is deeply flawed. It may indicate, though, the hazards of invoking the idea of “religious” conscience to object to laws that require abortion funding, for example. For a treatment of this issue, see this article.
