I am going to be very clear. I do not believe in abortions other than for medical reasons. BUT that is my personal belief. I would never condemn a woman for having an abortion. But I will be damned if I would ever help pay for it. With the fine lines we have drawn in the abortion debate, how can a presidential hopeful support the public funding of abortions? He says it is a constitution right. But isn't the right to life, also a constitutional right. That is where the debate begins. When is life, life? That question is more a belief than is a proven and definitive fact.
When I decided to start having sex, I made the conscience decision to protect myself b/c I was not ready for a baby. If I didn't have the $3 for a condom, or the $20 bucks for birth control pills, I didn't take the chance and 'hope' that I didn't get pregnant.
Former Mayor Giuliani, and 2008 Presidential hopeful, believes that poor women should have access to our taxes to pay for their abortions. He didn't say if there would be a cap on abortions. He didn't say what classified poor. He didn't give an annual figure of how much it might cost. He didn't mention the public funding of birth control as an alternative... he said that whether I liked it or not, I was denying someone their constitutional right to an abortion by not wanting to have my tax dollars go towards something I whole heartily do not believe in. I think that the uproar in the United States, if something like that were to be passed, would be huge. He says he doesn't believe in abortion and thinks that it shouldn't be allowed, but in the same sentence, says he supports public funding....
Way to play both sides of the fence there Giuliani!
