I don't usually touch on politics, but...

I think it should be pretty obvious that I take a very liberal stance on things. I believe in rights for all human beings. All of them. I believe in pro-choice because while I may never intend to get an abortion, I should have a fucking right to get one if I so damn well please. It's not the governments right to tell someone who they should love, or that they should carry an unwanted baby to full term. There are loads of kids in need of homes who are orphans. Loads.

That being said, I really wish the government would stay the hell out of MY vagina. It is by default, my property, and I don't appreciate them telling me what I can and cannot do with it. That would be like me telling them what to do with their penises. I mean, seriously?

They also don't have a right to take away my birth control or planned parenthood. I'm on the pill. It's expensive. I would quite like it if my insurance paid for it. I have several medications that I have to pay for, and thank goodness I have a mother who can help me out when need be otherwise I would kind of owe my soul to the pharmaceutical companies. Most women don't have that luxury. Also, being sexual active I've bought my fair share of condoms, and those are even more expensive then my birth control pills. I've been on birth control since I was 16. I didn't use it for contraception in the first place. I needed it for medical reasons.

I would really just appreciate it if people took their religious views out of the government rulings and the like. While I may not believe in god, if I did, I feel like he would be so ashamed of how the government is treating their own fellow beings. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Christians/whatever religion you choose basically supposed to treat one another better? Aren't they supposed to love one another and not treat another human being like shit?

We're all humans, and we're all different. That's what makes the human species so beautiful. We all have different beliefs and fall in love differently and live our lives differently. I'm sorry but I think god would want us to love one another and not attempt to chastise anyone for who they loved and he definitely wouldn't take away anyone's rights as a human being. I'm just sayin'.
