    article

    Hi! Please tell, is it necessary to use an article in this sentence
    "(The) Birth remains your only crime." ?
    Thanks!

    B.A.D.,

    I believe I would change the sentence slightly to "Being born remains your only crime." In your original sentence, omit the article, but I prefer the above sentence to "Birth remains your only crime."
