Since the a-hole is neither a lawyer nor a doctor, he's speaking WAY out of his field. Imagine if some doctor told him that confirmation wasn't a sacrament.

I wonder how valid a translation the word "medical" is.

The spanish word for "medical" is "medica" or "medico". I don't think there's a lot of room for mistranslation.

It's as valid as the words ectopic pregnancy, which even though they are deadly to the woman and no baby can result from, ministers and priests still don't approve of b/c it's considered abortive. OR let's take molar pregnancy, a mismatch of chromosomes that forms human tissues but isn't an actual growing embryo or fetus and will never become one but can be highly traumatic for the woman and can result in health risks to her unless medical help is recieved. Or let's look at third world countries where young women are raped and either die or suffer gynecological damage (pelvic floor damage) that causes them to constantly wet themselves which causes them to be outcasts in their society. Many Ob/Gyns volunteer their time and travel to those areas to help correct the damage to those women so they can go on to live a decent life. It's really sad that someone in a losing position would be made to suffer more.

It's really a scary thing when religious figures try to pressure people about medical issues. The medical knowledge just isn't there and their "counsel" can sometimes cost more lives.

If you're Catholic, feel free to listen to this person. However, you can't expect the rest of the world to do the same.

I certainly don't consider anything a Catholic Archbishop says as being universal to everyone. To me his opinions on the issue are about as relevant as a Chihuahua's.

The Archbishop of Mendoza along with the pope and the rest of the women hating gang can GFT. When they can have something involuntarily rammed up their backside and become pregnant then maybe they can have a say or even an opinion. Until then they can kindly STFU. My only wish is I could tell them in person.

They could not care less about any of the circumstances that you mention. They have been looking for new creative ways to persecute women since they stopped burning them at the stake. Now they have their teeth into trapping them with their own bodies and claiming it as the will of the almighty male god. They are nothing but a bunch of sick perverted low lifes.

It isn't up to YOU or some idiot Catholic bishop to decide that.

This kind of nonsense is one of the many reasons I kicked the toxic baggage of catholicism to the curb over 20 years ago. I still consider that one of the BEST decisions I ever made.

It's great how much freedom people have when we AREN'T slaves to toxic Catholic Church doctrines. We keep our power to make all of our OWN sexual and reproductive choices, rather than having dictatorial church clerics in dresses making the choices FOR us. And we get our freedom to spend Sundays OUR way too.

Ditto, Morgana. I'd love to tell them that in person as well.

Let's not forget the other evil act of church-based TERRORISM the Catholic Church devised against women, known as the MALLEUS MALEFICARUM. Using the phony scam of claiming many thousands of women were "witches," these women were horribly tortured before making some kind of "confession."

Of course the fanatical Church supporters will either deny it happened at all or try to defend it. Too bad for them that they CAN'T.

It would be fun to watched the stunned look on their self important face. Might have to get out the old frankincense and myrrh to revive them back to consciousness .:)

To be fair, the maleficarum was also used to torture and kill men, children, and animals as well; women did bear the majority of the damage, though.
