As someone who is fiercely independent, intelligent and for the most part mentally intact,it frustrates me that there are those who think they have the right to make decisions for me based on their beliefs or personal experiences.
For example if diagnosed with a terminal illness I and only me should be able to choose how I want to live out the rest of my days, including the option of medical assisted dying. If I choose to have an abortion, for whatever reason, I should have the right to choose.
God gave everyone of us the gift of choice yet many of you will fight to take our right to choose away based on your beliefs. As a Christian I would never tell anyone how to live based on my belief system, that’s between you and your beliefs. I only expect others to respect any major decisions I make in my life…it’s my life.
Could we please allow loved ones, friends, family and all humans the freedom of choice without shame or condemnation.
I am not wanting to debate what’s right or wrong; I want the right to choose what’s best for me and you choose what’s best for you based on your life circumstances.
