As the three primary candidates were running for governor, they had a lot of issues and topics to cover. Some people might have agreed with their beliefs and morals, and some might not have. There are three topics that the governors have covered throughout their campaigning that I do not agree with. The topics are Abortion, Marriage, and Death Penalty. I think these are important topics that need to be taken seriously, because it is dealing with someone’s life.
Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus. Ken Cuccinelli is against abortion. Ken co-sponsored a bill to ban abortion, even in cases of rape. Ken is a fanatic about taking away a woman’s right to choose. He urged people to go to jail to protest women’s access to contraception and even accused pro-choice people of killing children. He also sponsored “Choose Life” license plates in Virginia, effectively creating a steady stream of funding for anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers.”
Terry McAuliffe pledged to never compromise on the issue of abortion. Terry said, “Women need to know, every Virginian needs to know that there are inconsistencies. He stated that he will reopen clinics that have closed from regulations. He said he would oppose any restriction against abortion. He also said he follows Virginia’s abortion laws, but Virginia has some of the most pro-life legislation in the country. “Terry supports abortion on demand at any time for any reason- paid for by Virginia taxpayers.” The McAuliffe campaign tells us that he “supports keeping existing Virginia laws on when abortions are legal.” McAuliffe supports existing Virginia laws on abortion that prohibit third-trimester abortions except to protect the life or health of the mother.
Robert Sarvis says, he is “fairly moderate” and “fairly negative on abortion.” He reveals that he and his current wife had an unplanned pregnancy and decided to marry, not have an abortion. “Well that speaks for itself,” he says. Robert is not looking to seize on a controversy where, he says, “we’re radically divided on a metaphysical issue.” From his standpoint, Robert says the state would be better if “we can take four years off” from the abortion wars. Robert argues that most voters don’t vote solely on gay marriage or abortion.
My opinion on abortion is totally different from the candidates running for governor. I disagree with abortion. In my opinion, I think every child deserves to have a life. It is a sin to kill someone, so I don’t think abortion is a good idea. I understand there are situations where getting pregnant is an accident or the person may be young, but there is always the adoption process. I think all of the abortion clinics should be shut down. The price to get an abortion starts at $600, I could buy a ton of clothes or food for that much money. I don’t necessarily disagree with the restrictions on abortion in...
