It's a Free Country...

To summarize one of my favorite 2nd Grade comebacks – “it’s a free country, I can do what I want.”

I agree, if they want to spend the money to put an ad out, fine. Maybe pro-choice groups could put out an ad about how even if there were no restrictions on abortion, Tim Tebow would still have been born in all his glory because pro-choice is not pro-abortion. And then maybe give real-life examples of mom’s who have died because they carried babies to term. I think pro-life crowds often assume pro-choice crowds want babies to be aborted. At the same time, I don’t see what is that offensive about the Tebow ad. Isn’t it a success story? Although, they could throw in a disclaimer stating that while this is cool, most moms who keep babies that could threaten their own lives don’t end up with Heisman trophy winning quarterbacks.

Whatever your stance, people can say what they want.

First, I agree with you, but there is a nit I’d like to pick in your argument.

This is probably the most misconstrued aspect of the laws in our country. While on the surface, the term “free country” implies that we can do what we want, your freedoms only extend insofar as they do not impinge on mine. The simplest example: you are not allowed to yell fire in a crowded theater when there isn’t one. Also, inciting a riot falls under this same category. Personally, I wish people understood this a little better.
