Back Alley or Dr. Office?

  Okay so yeah, I live overseas, but I still cast a ballot on elections.  What the knuckleheads in D.C. do still kind of affects me.  This year I have completely given up, I haven't' sent in my overseas voter registration or whatever you call it.  Because honestly this years candidates have left me feeling sick.  I was thinking of casting my ballot for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson but he's left me feeling as ill as Trump and Clinton, both of whom I believe are bat sh*t crazy!  Johnson is good because he's all about smaller government, no wars, flat tax, etc.  However he IS for mandatory vaccinations and he's pro-choice.  However I'm somewhere on the fence with the whole pro-choice pro-life thing.

  During a recent FB exchange, I feel I need to express my opinion on the abortion issue.

 First of all I detest abortion, I believe there are other alternatives to abortion.....HELLO!  Adoption!  There are literally millions of women unable to conceive who would LOVE top adopt a newborn.  If you haven't seen it and can get past all the F-bombs, watch the movie "Juno".

  BUT, I would rather have abortion be legal th Laan illegal, and here's why.  As much as I loathe the idea of abortion, I would rather be able to see a qualified doctor in a sterilized environment as opposed to a dingy, dirty room in some back alley clinic, dingy hotel room or apartment where the woman is likely to get an infection and die.  See "Dirty Dancing" or the foreign move "4Luni, 3 Saptamani, si 2 zile" / "4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days".

  My reasoning for this stance, simple:  a woman who gets an abortion in a legal, sterile clinic can later change her mind about her views on abortion, and maybe counsel women also seeking abortion.  A woman who doesn't have a legal avenue to obtain an abortion not only looses a baby, but possibly her life.

  Laws are strange things.  As it stands now, a woman can legally kill her unborn baby, but if a stranger or loved one kills a pregnant woman, the murderer is charged with 2 counts of murder, while the abortion seeking mother gets nothing.  That makes no sense to me.  Now I'm not saying that the law is wrong, but it's contradictory in a sense.  I get that a woman who has an abortion chose to end the life of the baby, and that the pregnant woman didn't want an abortion and actually WANTED the baby; hence the double murder charge if said pregnant woman is murdered.  From a legal standpoint this all makes sense.

  This is the thing conservatives need to remember; it's ALL about upholding the law, even if you don't agree with the law.  Sometimes, the law goes against everything you believe in, unless you take a step back and look at it from all angles.

  Again I am Pro-Life, but from a legal standpoint I am Pro-Choice.  The majority of conservatives identify as Christian.  As Christians we must remember we are NOT judge and jury, we are mere witnesses.  Only God can judge people.  God will judge women who have aborted babies.  I don't think it's right or fair to make a woman pay for a mistake with her life, not when she has a chance to seek redemption in the eyes of God and to help other women who are thinking about abortion.

  Sunday morning, take a moment and look at the woman or women sitting next to or around you.  You don't know who they are, not really.  They might have had an abortion back before they gave their lives to Christ but are too ashamed to admit it.  Are you going to give them dirty looks, and accuse them if they do admit it? Of course not, because they're like you now, right? They're Christians!

  So why not take the attitude you have towards the repentant woman next to you in the pew and apply it to the unrepentant woman who has had or is wanting to have an abortion.
