Religion and Theology

Reverence for life is a foundational teaching of the Abrahamic traditions. Not surprisingly, then, some groups, such as the U.S. Roman Catholic

bishops, have issued statements denouncing capital punishment, abortion, and euthanasia as violations of the sanctity of life. Do you agree that

these three issues are so inextricably linked that to oppose one of them, you must oppose all three? Why or why not?
