Famous Liberals

A Liberalistic view on...

Abortion- A woman has the right to determine what happens to her body. A fetus is to a human life so it does not have individual rights. The government should provide for women who do not have the money for an abortion.

Gun Laws- The Second Amendment does not give citizens the right to keep and bear arms, but only allows for the state to keep a militia. Individuals do not need guns for protection; it is the role of local and federal government to protect the people through law enforcement agencies and the military.

Immigration- Support legal immigration. Support amnesty for those who enter the U.S. legally. Liberals also believe that undocumented immigrants have a right to: all educational and health benefits that citizens receive (financial aid, welfare, social security, and medicaid), regardless of legal status.
