Don’t use taxes to pay for abortion


I’m old, and old-fashioned.

When I was young, we had to accept the consequences of our choices and actions, for better or worse. We learned personal responsibility.

If a woman wants an abortion, that is often the consequence of her poor choice of action. Why should I pay for her indiscretion? Let her deal with her own consequences. It is her responsibility, not mine.

She can’t afford it? Live with it, then. Or get the future father to help, or her family. It doesn’t give her the right to dig into my pocket for her preventable problem.

Ballot #106 doesn’t oppose abortion, it just protects me against theft by higher taxation. Charging me for her abortion is just plain theft.

Don’t legalize theft.

Vote yes on Measure 106.
