“The decision to have an abortion is, for most women, an extremely excruciatingly painful and emotional one. It is not one made lightly in most cases. For me, or anyone else, to attempt to tell a woman choosing an abortion that she has made the wrong decision is ludicrous. No one is in a better position to judge her ability to take care of a child better than the woman herself. And to tell her she is committing murder is a form of intimidation and harassment and MUST be stopped by law if necessary.” -from angelfire.com/co/rainbowlady/abortion.html
If choosing to have an abortion is a personal issue between a woman and her doctor (thats what the president says) and the government should have nothing to do with it, then choosing to euthanize a person in a lot of pain is a personal choice between a person and doctor and family. And, abuse is a personal choice between the victim and the abuser. Rape is a personal decision between a man and a woman. Brainwashing is a personal choice among cult leaders and the members. Prostitution is a highly personal choice among women as a means to make money when other avenues are vacant. Drug use and trafficking are private personal issues. Child abuse is a personal choice among family members.
If the government doesn’t exist to protect people from basic crimes against life, what is the purpose of it?
“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!”- Deut 30:19
