Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation? Is the question that organizations like VoteSmart.org want politicians to answer. Its interesting that they pick out a question like this that is specifically designed to illicite a yes or no type of response on a topic that is really not yes or no. (they do the same thing with the defense of marriage legislation) This tactic is designed to cause trouble for candidates they don't like.
I should know. I took classes in college where they taught us to write survey questions. When you teach a person how to write questions, in an attempt to get statistical data, you are supposed to teach them to write the question so that it gets unbiased information.
But you are also teaching them how to get biased information.
But back to the topic. And to the question.
The answer is "No."
I don't support pro-life or pro-choice legislation.
What I do support is getting the federal government out of this discussion and focus of lawmaking. This should not be an issue of federal jurisdiction. It should be a states rights issue.
We are pushing too many things up to a federal level. Abortion laws are one of them. Lets push this back down to the states where it should be, and let 50 states deal with this independently. People can gather and vote or move away in disgust and so influence the various legislatures.
Forcing my view that abortion is killing a baby on other people is distasteful. I don't want to do that, even if I could. I want people to make good choices so that they will have a good experience when they are standing before their maker to be judged.
1. Rights come from our creator to the people.
2. Then from the people to the states
3. Then from the states to the nation.
4. Men may be created equal, but states are not. What works for one, doesn't always work for the others.
