Do some research on the number of abortions done in this country, let alone the rest of the world.(hint: it's measured in millions annually) If you can honestly tell me that all those unwanted children would be better off being forced onto un-willing parents or the foster system, maybe you can have a leg to stand on.
Children should be brought into the world because they have loving and willing parents. Not because someone thinks that abortion is "killing a child" and checks a box on a voter form to force that opinion on everyone else. Nobody should ever be able to vote away someone's rights, ever. The right to your own body and it's functions is about as basic as it gets.
I only just recently turned 18. I refuse to vote on anything that would force anyone to do anything they don't want to. As my little brother puts it, that would be rape. (Or just like it.) I hate rapists, pedophiles, etc... they disgust me. But I'm not forcing my opinion on anybody. I am only stating it.
I will say though, I reserve my right to defend my family and property with a gun. I'm from Texas, so the death penalty is in my working vocabulary. Ironic, eh?
