Fact of the Day: Ronald Reagan Abortion Debate

Even though my religion is against abortion, I think that women have the right to decide. It's their own body, and circumstances sometimes necessitate tough decisions.

Nothing like discovering political expediency is more important than your values! It's a woman's body. She alone has the right to decide about her health.
