Mapping the world's opinions

Separation of Church and State

Abortion laws should not be dictated by religious beliefs in supposedly​ secular countries.


Many of those who are against abortions have stances rooted in religious texts and beliefs. Thus in secular states, deciding whether or not one should be allowed to have an abortion should ideally be backed by scientific and empirical evidence surrounding the benefits and drawbacks of legal abortion rather than being drawn by religious fervor.
