I’m Atlas

28 Feb
You think abortion is wrong? Don’t have one. I think killing people is wrong, so I’m not in the army. My tax dollars still go to fund it, though (in fact about 21 cents of each of my tax dollars). My tax dollars also go to keep prisoners on death row even though I think the death penalty is morally wrong. My tax dollars fund Guantanamo and Bagram, extraordinary rendition, and Jim DeMint’s salary, all of which I find disgusting. So why is abortion, a legal medical procedure, so remarkably different that we have to go overboard making sure tax dollars don’t fund it?

When I get to heaven I’ll have to answer for my sin of paying for guns that kill people in the Middle East.  That’s my cross to bear.  You’ll just have to be satisfied that we’ll be equal in having to confront our gods for the choices other people made for us.
