Regarding the posting just below this one:

Am I pro-abortion?


I believe in the absolute right to make one's own personal choices* ... and just as soon as I grow a viable ovary-active uterus, I'll let you know about this specific issue.

What I am against is the age-old tradition of self-serving men beating up on young women and girls whenever they feel insecure.

I believe, as Tom Paine did, although he said it with more eloquence and explanation in Rights of Man** --

"Religious zealots -- your god's dicta stop at other people's front doors."

(Tom Paine also said that to you, it's revelation but to him, it's hearsay.
Used that exact word, "hearsay.")


"The law ought to prohibit only actions hurtful to society."

(This means, if you are offended by what someone else does, too bad -- it is NONE of your business.)

"Political liberty consists in the power of doing whatever does not injure another."
(Again -- no matter what form of moonlight you believe in -- for 9 months, a fetus IS that person in which it grows. If you think not, fine -- think it as regards your own life.)

Thomas Jefferson:

"I have sworn on the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

This means, as I take it, that you and I and everyone else has a right to live his or her own life without suffering harassment or haranguing from the religious beliefs -- sincere or otherwise -- of you or me or and anyone else.

Why would he say such a thing? Well, he also had this to say on the subject:

"In every country and every age, the priest has been hostile to Liberty."
