I was thinking about my political beliefs, and realizing that most of my principles revolved around a singular ideal:
The right to choose.
I am pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, pro-coexistence of religions...etc.
I think that people should always have the right to choose what they want.
I understand why people oppose abortion- to them, it's killing babies. But I think that forcing a fourteen year old girl who got raped,has an abusive father, and not enough money be a mother to a child is downright awful.
Also, abortion is all about saving that baby's life. What do you think will happen to that baby? He/she will probably grow up with a mother who's in school, possibly end up in a gang, maybe kill themselves...making the whole thing irrelevant.
But I digress from gay rights.
Basically, I fight for the right for gay people to choose to be married. If a law allowing it passes, it does not mean that suddenly all the straight people in the world have to marry someone of the same sex, or even that all gay lovers have to get married.
No, it just gives people the right to choose if they are ready to make that commitment.
Which is completely up to them, in my opinion, to decide.
Thank you for listening to my rants.
