I'm having a debate with a person on youtube about Abortion. I can't stand doing debates on youtube because you only get 500 characters. It's worse than twitter! Yes, I know I could IM the person, but honestly I don't want to. Besides, you guys are a lot more insightful, interesting and many of you come from countries with national health care so I won't hear about health care not being a right.
Anyways I was wondering people's opinions on keeping this legal because after hearing about dear govenour good hair (AKA Rick Perry R TX) forcing pregnant girls and women to get sonigrams prior to abortions I got pissed. Now I'm adopted and was raised Catholic (although my Catholic mom took me to get birth control) but I was also raised that God gave us free will. Which means that we're responsible for our own actions and it's up to each individual person to decide what's right for him or her.
Now personally I would never get an abortion unless it was necessary and by necessary we're talking tubal pregnancy. I honestly don't believe I'd even get one if I was raped, don't quote me on that because I'd never been raped. But I honestly don't believe I could do that. I could get a morning after pill though because I don't believe that would be the same thing. However even though I don't believe I could go get one and I don't believe they should be used as birth control (I knew a woman down in Texas whose sister had had about six abortions just because- of course I don't know how much of that was true) doesn't mean I think we should make them illegal. Of course I also believe that making abortions illegal in the states would be unconstitutional.
So anyone else. Sorry about the disjointed post,
