I don’t believe in tax-payer funded abortion unless the woman’s life is in danger or she is a victim of rape or incest. Because it is elective, she should pay for it.
I know. Would I rather pay for an abortion now or years of welfare? I have issues with welfare, but I won’t go into that now. It’s not an issue of short-term vs. long-term cost. It’s about responsibility. They had sex, and it was an unplanned pregnancy. Sad, but it happens. If she wants an abortion, fine. It’s her choice. I don’t want my tax dollars to pay for her mistake.
I know. She’s poor and can’t afford one. And? There is a charity that helps women pay for their abortions. Fund Abortion Now
I know. Some lifestyle choices like smoking can lead to cancer. Should treatment be offered to them if they can’t afford it? Yes. I understand that this is a good point that I can’t refute. I still don’t believe that tax payers should fund elective abortions. I demonstrated that “feeling doesn’t equal rational thinking” according to one poster. I can accept that.
But so the f*ck what? It’s my opinion, and I’m entitled to it. Why do I have to justify it to the base? Why am I called a “troll” or “not a very good Liberal?” Just because a few of my opinions divert from the “normal” Liberal view? Do we all have to be the same?
Members of the Liberal base, you drive me crazy sometimes. I don’t give a flying Fig Newton if you hate having to share the Big Tent with me. Sharing it with those who can’t accept that not everyone is like them isn’t roses and cupcakes either. I’m here, you’re here, and we’re Liberals. There are things we will agree with and others that we won’t. Deal with it. You can tell me (as you did), “Go f*ck yourself, neighbor!” And I can tell you (as I did), “Right backatcha, neighbor!” Or you can call me a Right-Wing Troll. Yeah, that one stung a little.
In the end, the stuff we do agree on will make me look past our neighborly squabble. Will you?
