Katie presumes to know what America believes and wants, but that aside, It seems to me that there are two issues here, and both of them are related to individual freedom: 1) Does a woman have the right to make private decisions about her body and her health? 2) Should taxpayers who may disagree with her decisions be forced to pay for her choices? I would oppose abortion for my wife and my family, but it would be their decision, not mine. The same with others. I don't presume to be wise and omnipotent enough to force my beliefs on anyone else. On the other hand, I don't want my taxes to be spent paying for their choices.
