What are women’s rights with respect to reproduction and sexuality? This question is controversial, but Katharina von Kellenbach, professor of religious studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, takes a clear stand: “Women have a right, and a responsibility, to be able to say ‘no’… to childbearing and sex.” In her new essay, “The Paradox of Freedom: Mary, the Manhattan Declaration and Women’s Submission to Childbearing,” von Kellenbach questions biblical interpretations of freedom that are used to restrict women’s moral agency in the United States.
