I just received a forwarded email message that was emotionally charged and biased to one side of the Freedom of Choice Act. The message was similar to the one found in this Snopes article:
My own first instinct is to be against this “Freedom of Choice Act”. My initial reaction is based on my belief that murder is wrong, children have a right to live, and if a woman made a “choice” that got her pregnant she should take responsibility for her actions. In most cases, abortion is a done to avoid taking responsibility for actions. Negative consequences are the results of bad choices. If we do not take responsibility for our actions, we learn nothing from our mistakes, which means that we keep making more and worse mistakes.
That is my perspective on abortion.
I have only just recently learned of the Freedom of Choice Act. So the jury is still out on it for me.
I would love to hear your opinions and facts that you have learned. Let us help each other be more informed on this topic so that we can make a wise and well thought out judgement.
