Religious freedom. 

Conservatives use this phrase
to impose their religious beliefs on others
by incorporating the tenets of their religion
into the laws of government.

Liberals use this phrase
to imply that religious freedom is sacred
and co-mingling of religion and politics
has no place in a democracy.

Both sides insist that the beliefs
of others should not interfere
with their ability to live their lives
according their beliefs.


Pro-life supporters insist abortion
goes against the will of God,
and therefore should be illegal
and unavailable to anyone.

Pro-choice supporters insist a woman
should be able to decide whether abortion
goes against her own pro-life beliefs
about children already born.

So is abortion a moral or a religious issue?
