I have had a TON of people asking me to post my opinion on the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision. So here you go. Don’t say you didn’t ask for it.
A corporation isn’t human. It can’t have feelings. It can’t have thoughts. It can’t have religion. It is a nonentity.
A person, a human, can. And that human has a right to the separation of church and state.
Which means that person is free to feel, think, and believe without the fear of prosecution from the government.
I think that the Supreme Court violated the constitution.
And that has nothing to do with what I, as a human think, feel, or believe.
I, personally, would not choose to have an abortion. However, I do not look down upon those who do. Or condemn their decision. Or judge them.
I am a Christian. I believe that we all sin. And your sin isn’t worse than my sin. And God tells me that I should love my neighbor and He has loved me. And let me tell you that is an amazingly faithful and nonjudgemental love.
I believe that a woman has a right to choose. I believe that her body belongs to her and she has a right to decide what she will and won’t do with it.
I believe that when we give people the right to choose, there will be those who make poor decisions. Make decisions they regret.
But it is not the governments job to tell people how to make decisions. How to think or how to feel. What to believe. That is what the United States Constitution was founded on.
I believe that if that right to choose is taken away, the act of abortion will not stop. It will just happen in back alleys and unlicensed doctors. Unsanitary. Unsafe. Deadly. All you have to do is take a small glance into women’s history to find home remedies for pregnancy. Poisons. Falling down stairs. Stomach punching. Coat hangers.
I don’t think this battle is over. Far from it. But I think we need to keep fighting.Bella Abzug and other women gathered at a women’s liberation march Keystone/Getty Images
