I have done quite a bit of thinking recently and have come to sort of a conclusion. I am a republican and I am not ashamed to say so, my basic beliefs do not really matter for this question, but to sum it up, I believe that the government should take a step back and give us our freedoms back and stop telling us all what we can and cannot do. I believe that the government is way too involved in our lives and decision and the way we are raising our children etc.
With all that said I got to thinking about abortion. I was raised with the belief that abortion is wrong and should be illegal. I still do not agree with it but I have never been placed in a situation where I would have to make that decision. Now my question, is my belief that I was raised with a hypocritical belief in regards to the rest of my beliefs? I want the government to let me make my own decisions but I want to make the decision for another human? Make a decision for a woman and take away her choice???
I think my stance is changing for the reasons stated above, does this thought make any sense to anyone?Answer Question

We all have our things that makes is think about our beliefs....and if they align in ALL aspects
