I am Pro-Choice

Filed under: Personal — Dee @ 12:03 am

Kingsley and I were having a conversation about abortion laws; death sentence and euthanasia, which all obviously involve taking “lives”. Given that euthanasia is voluntary and the person is probably making a meditated choice about what is good for him/ herself it’s fairly open and shut.

The Death sentence and Abortion involve another “person’s” life – and always will have a lot of opposing stances, given that it is extremely subjective. For now, let’s focus on the limelight topic: abortion laws.

 

  • Fetus: is it life at fertilization, or in 7 months of fertilization or what? (I side with Roe v. Wade)
  • Why does the Supreme Court think it knows what’s best for the mother/ parents?
  • USA has bigger problems – war, national security, deficit, health care, paris hilton…Hello 2008 GOP Presidential candidates wake up!
