Truth be told, if you look at my initial posting, I am neither religious or pro-life. As an athiest, I can’t exactly claim the religious stance on the issue.
I just don’t want the federal government involved in something that everyone should be able to choose for themselves for whatever reason they have (illogical religious or otherwise). Even if your choice means that you have to move to a state that aligns with your beliefs. At least the whole country isn’t beholden to the ideas of a few.
I don’t understand that logic.
There are no circumstances under which abortion is mandatory. The law already says that “everyone should be able to choose for themselves for whatever reason they have”, and doesn’t require anybody to move to a different state.
Why is it bad for the whole country to be “beholden to the ideas of a few”, but it’s somehow OK for a whole state to be so?
It seems to me that legal abortion is the only legitimate stance, here. Anybody who believes it’s wrong should simply not have one. Like premarital sex — if you believe it’s wrong, don’t do it. Nobody’s “beholden” to the ideas of anybody else.
Even more — it seems to me that it the government should go out of its way to make sure that they really are available. Currently, there are a lot of places where you’d have to drive many hours to find a doctor who’s willing to perform an abortion — not necessarily because of conscience… many are simply afraid, and that shouldn’t be.
