Because I am trying to be a more informed voter and American citizen, I watched the VP debate tonight.
First and foremost, I am disappointed in the mannerisms of our current VP.
Second, I am incredibly tired of the media biases-on either side.
Third, I am now finding myself in my own personal battle of good and evil.
Much to my dismay, I am finding myself incredibly conflicted.

Let me begin by saying that I firmly believe that abortion is murder.  Plain and simple.  No one has the right to take a life.  Ever.  I even struggle with the circumstantial abortion.


However, I don't feel that it is the government's place to tell me what I can or cannot do with my body.  It's mine and I will do as I feel is best for me and for my life and for my family.  Plain and simple - that's none of your dadgum business.

As a woman with my particular trial in life, I get angry when people kill babies for no good reason.  Adoption is expensive.  If you don't want your baby, please....I will gladly take him/her and love them with every fiber of my being.  
Also,what if your mother had aborted you?  Every soul has a divine purpose in life that no one else can fulfill.  How are we damaging the world, the future generations?  What are we missing out on because you don't want your baby?

But again, I don't want to be told that I have to take birth control, that I have to only have one child, that I have to etc, etc, etc by a government that doesn't know me and my life.  I believe that the concept of a government controlling my choices about my body is wrong.  How would you feel if the government required every woman to have her significant other's name tattooed on her arm or that required every person to wear a hat on Thursdays?  It may sound ridiculous, but I feel that if we give the government an inch, they'll take a mile and regulate not only women's health, but also her weight, her makeup, her cold medicine, etc.  And that  too, is wrong.

I guess it's just going to wind up being a matter of personal choice.  
But, I do have to say that I am grateful for all the mothers that I know that didn't abort their child.  Each of your children have a special place in my heart. Even the mischievous ones.  I thank God everyday for the children that I work with and can't imagine my life without even one of them.
