The core democratic values that this article speaks of are the values of life, liberty and authority. The article covers Hillary Clinton’s speech about openly supporting abortion.

“Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed,:

Clinton mentions in this article. Her belief is that Christians must be forced to change their religious views and conform to what she believes is “best for America”.

The fact that we can breathe properly, eat whatever we want , and walk upright is a blessing. The idea of an individual losing their opportunity to possess a modest life frustrates me. The act of abortion is selfish and just plain illogical, with or without the account of religious belief. Regardless of beliefs or religious devotions, on a simple human level it is unjust for one human being to have the choice of ending a life of another.  The debate is centered around where human life begins and science tells us more clearly each year that the full potential of human life is present at conception.  To go against what our bodies are designed for alienates humanity and enforces an unintended sense of control over every single aspect for our existence. To strive against God’s intended intelligent design only brings about more suffering.

“Now, of course, most of those “religious beliefs” are based upon clear teachings within Scripture that teach us to hold children precious, to sacrifice ourselves for others – and, above all, not to kill the innocent. What Clinton and her comrades on the Left do not seem to understand is that our religious beliefs are not a matter of personal opinion, but, rather, one of submission to our Creator,” Ripley continued. “Clinton is not the first self-proclaimed leader to shake a fist at the Almighty. One can presume that He is not particularly impressed; though His heart is undoubtedly grieved.”

Over all, the authority Hillary Clinton displays is admirable. I support her decision to run, as it would be interesting to see the nations first “Mrs.President”. However,  I strongly support my belief on Christianity and believe that Jesus is the only way, the truth, and life and would not be willing to change that.
