Why I Am Christian and Pro-Choice
Charlotte Clymer

If the day were to come that Muslims were the majority in the United States, I wonder how happy Christians would be to have the religion of the majority determine the laws of the land?

Just because I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins, it doesn’t mean that I believe that my religious beliefs across the board should dictate the laws of the land.

The key should be to find the commonalities between people of all faiths and go from there. For instance, I think most everyone can agree that driving while intoxicated is a bad idea. The same goes for robbing people.

When we get to polarizing issues like abortion, I would suggest that people focus on something that most people would agree on and that is coming up with programs that reduce the number of abortions that happen in this country.

I think most Pro-Choice and Pro-Life people would agree that a woman having an abortion isn’t an ideal situation and it has a lot of negative outcomes for the woman.

Focusing on education and access to birth control has been proven to reduce the number of abortions. So, why not focus on that goal that can unite people as opposed to keep focused on a conversation that will never allow for common ground to be reached?
