So, If It's Our Choice ...

by

comment

For years, we have been hearing a particular element of society say the government—in particular the federal government—has no business interfering with their body and their health. This element of society works incessantly to assert that they control their body and it is nobody else’s business.

I never imagined in my life that I would agree with women who say that abortion is their choice, until I recently read a petition that says, “Individual Mandate—which forces Americans to buy a government-approved health-care plan—not only infringes on your right to control your own health care, but serves as the linchpin of Obamacare.”

So does this mean women who believe in abortion oppose Obamacare because the Affordable Care Act infringes on their right to control their own health care?
