11. I don't believe in abortion, unless the mother's life is at risk.
Edited on Thu Jun-11-09 10:10 PM by Th1onein
I don't believe in capital punishment, either. Or in war. For all of the same reasons. I believe that these values are consistent with how I feel about the sanctity of life.

I think that if you are going to legislate against murderer, you should legislate against abortion, except, as I said previously, when the mother's life is at risk.

However, I believe in a woman's right to use birth control, too. I think that they are two different issues.

Oh, and by the way, I am not religious in ANY way. I'm not even sure I believe in God, so that has nothing to do with these issues.
