I believe that the right for a person to chose their own
destiny and how they live is a fundamental principle of this
country. This principle, along with several others helps to
form the fabric of morality and ideas that we live by
everyday. When this right is denied to someone by the
government, undoubtedly something very wrong.
It is such the case with making abortions illegal. By
outlawing abortions, you are outlawing a woman's choice for
how she will live her life. The government has in a sense
become a "big brother" and has decided what is good for her
and what is not. When government goes beyond foreign affair
and the protection of it's citizens, into the controlling of
lives and decisions that we make, it is no longer a
government. It becomes something that goes against every
single principle and idea that this country was founded upon.
It becomes a vacuum of freedom, slowly sucking our rights
away until we are nothing but a mindless mass, devoid of
ideas and a soul.
These lives that we live are not yours, nor are they the
governments. We have the choice to live and to die, and in
that choice lies the very thing that makes us who and what we
are. When you strip of us this choice, of this right, you
take our lives.. And with it, our freedom.
This letter to the editor is liberal in style. The idea
of giving a woman a choice to an abortion is protecting the
rights of an individual is liberal. Also, if we use the idea
of pregnant women being a minority, this letter also protects
the rights of the minority, which is a liberal idea as well.
