Separation of Government and Pregnancy

Pregnancy is the last battleground in society’s control of women. Gender roles have fallen everywhere else, but in this one aspect many people still feel that they can impose their own values, beliefs and expectations on women. Women are told they are expected to bring children into the world, whether they want to or not. They are expected to put their offspring before everything else sacrificing, their own wants and needs for the next 18 years and beyond.

Our society could not survive if it was not for those who choose to have and raise children, but no one should be forced to have children who don’t want to. It is never ok for anyone to force their values on another person. Everyone has the right to make their own decisions in life and no one needs to answer to anyone else. We need to get the government out of the way to make more options available. The FDA stifles medical technology, limiting the production and availability of IUDs that many women use safely in Europe, it stifles the development of male contraceptives, Limits the availability of Plan B. There could be many more ways that unwanted pregnancies could be prevented if we didn’t have the government holding back development. In a truly free market the need for an abortion could be rare whether it is legal or not.

President Biden was Wrong to cancel Student Loan Debt

The President’s decision to shift the responsibility of student loan debt from borrowers  to tax payers, creates much more chaos than it supposedly helps. The president claims the burden of student loans is too heavy for anyone to get ahead- while at the same time the government continues to issue more student loans!

How much debt should someone starting college now be willing to take on? Should you borrow more in hopes that student loan forgiveness becomes an annual event? There are no signals to be able to make a rational decision. The loans were issued by the Federal Government. If a bank continued to give loans to someone that could not afford it until the debt load was “crushing”. The would have been called predatory lenders and would be investigated. Why are there no calls to investigate the government, while it continues to hand out loans with no change in lending criteria?

As long as the government keeps providing money colleges will continue to raise prices. We must end the Federal Student loan program. Universities will be forced to adopt market rates in order to stay open.
