The choice of a President of the United States may be based on such issues as abortion.

The health of a woman should not be used to sway voters. Besides, women are being insulted. They are full-fledged citizens of the United States and they know right from wrong. They are responsible individuals and cannot be looked upon as frivolous.

Abortion and birth control are not a clear “yes” or “no” issue. A person may be against abortions, but find herself needing an abortion.

New Evidence Reveals Library Of Alexandria Kicked Out Dozens Of Creepy Old  Romans For Looking At Pornographic Images On Abacus
