Everyone has a voice. Everyone’s voice matters. Over the last century we have worked so hard to give people the right to control their own mind and body. And, because a rich, white man who grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth and old world views is now president, all of the control we have gained in our lives could be gone very soon. I think it’s important we speak up, tell people your opinions. Just because you’re young, or a women or seen as a minority (or just simply not a middle aged white male), you have the right to your opinion. Don’t let anyone tear you down or make you feel like you’re not smart enough, old enough or educated enough to have those views. So, copy and paste these questions, use this Q and A as a template and fill in your answers on your blog, on your twitter, on your Facebook. Let people know you have a voice and that your opinions matter as well. Don’t be silenced by society. Tell them your opinions.
Here are the questions and here are my answers. I plan on doing many more of these for different issues in our current world.
Should terminally ill patients be allowed to end their lives via assisted suicide?
Yes, but only after a psychological examination to show that they fully understand their choice.
What is your stance on abortion?
Pro-Choice. I believe life starts at birth and that a woman should be able to do what she wants with her body.
Do you support the legalization of same sex marriage?
Yes!! Of course. Someone’s sexual preference shouldn’t matter when it comes to marriage. As long as it is two consenting adults, it doesn’t matter whether they are sexually attracted to women or men.
Should health insurance providers be required to offer free birth control?
Yes, health insurance providers give out Viagra for free, they should be giving out birth control as the only use for Viagra is for men to get an erection. Whereas the pill offers women piece of mind when having sex, as well help with period pains and some illnesses. There is no justiciable reason as to why birth control isn’t free, but Viagra is.
Do you support the death penalty?
Yes, but only for cases that are horrific and have undeniable evidence attached. Like, rape, and murder.
Should a business be able to deny service to a customer if the request conflicts with the owner’s religious beliefs?
No, someone’s religion shouldn’t prevent them from getting the same service as someone else would get.
Should businesses be required to have women on their board of directors?
Yes. I think it is only equal to have both women and men on their board of directors. Just like a jury has 6 women and 6 men.
Should the government continue to fund Planned Parenthood?
Yes. Planned Parenthood is a much needed charity, it has helped millions of people since it opened. Planned Parenthood not only offers Abortions – like most pro lifers will have you believe. They also offer free contraceptives, breast cancer screenings, STD testing and treatments, LGBT services, men’s health services, pregnancy testing, vaccines, and more. Planned Parenthood has been advocating and educating for over a 100 years. Only 3% of Planned Parenthoods services carried out are abortions.
Should the military allow women to serve in combat roles?
Yes. Women have been proving that they’re just as strong as men for many years now. There is no reason why women cannot serve in combat roles.
Should “gender identity” be added to anti-discrimination laws?
Yes. Whether a person decides to identity as a man, woman, or other, they deserve the same rights as someone who identifies as the gender in which they were born with. They shouldn’t be treated any differently. So, to protect them we should add these laws to the anti-discrimination laws.
Should marital rape be classified and punished as severely as non-marital rape?
Yes. It doesn’t matter if someone is married, the penalty for rape should be classified as the same kind as non-marital rape. Marriage doesn’t give someone a free pass to rape someone, they aren’t someone’s property just because they’re married.
Should gay couples have the same adoption rights as straight couples?
Yes. Gay couples can make amazing parents, just like straight couples can. There is no reason they should discriminated against.
