What happened to Seperation of Church and State??
I had excepted the election results yesterday morning. I understood that at the least 8 years was all I have to wait for a man I completely disagree with to be out of office. However, last night I saw something on Facebook about Trump and Pence’s plans for Birth Control. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Trump and Pence want to at the very least make birth control un affordable to everyone REGARDLESS of if it is needed for medical reasons. If I cannot get birth control it will most likely lead to my death. Either my Cysts will cause internal damage when they rupture, or they will turn into Ovarian Cancer. Even more upsetting, they want to outlaw birth control because it is “anti-Christian”. Our founding fathers put in the constitution that we have the Freedom of Religion. There is supposed to be a complete separation of Church and state. But apparently if the president feels like his Christian views should be law than that’s fine. I should have to fear for my life because of the president’s religious views. Everything else can be undone when he is gone. But people who died from not having access to the medications they need (because of a President’s and Vice President’s religious views) cannot be brought back. Why should I have to fear dying young for someone else's religious views? (H1)
