Abortion

Bernie believes in protecting a woman's right to choose whether or not to have an abortion because it is their personal decision to make, because it is affecting their bodies.

The decision about abortion must remain a decision for the woman, her family and physician to make, not the government."

The attempt by republicans to cut off support for planned parenthood is an attack on all women".Bernie sanders wants women to have the ultimate choice and decision of abortion because it is linked to there health and body's.Making it there decision to do so whatever choice they make.

Immigrantion

Bernie Sanders Believes that we should not be talking about sweeping up millions of men, women, and children, many of whom have been here for years and throwing them out of the country. Bernie Sanders says, "We are a nation of immigrants. I am the son of an immigrant myself. Their story, my story, our story is a story of America: hard-working families coming to the United States to create a brighter future for their children. The story of immigrants is the story of America, a story rooted in family and fueled by hope. It continues today in families all across the United States.

".Bernie sanders wants the undocumented immigrants to become documented and have the same equality and freedom as anybody else. Bernie can relate to this because his parents were immigrants from Poland feeling in hope to find a better life and future in America. Bernie sanders also wants to Sign comprehensive immigration reform into law to bring over 11 million undocumented workers out of the shadows.

My Opinions

Gay Rights:

I believe that everyone has the right to be treated equally and have the same rights as everyone else does.No more, no less. Also sexual orientation and gender identity are integral aspects of our self's and should never lead to discrimination or abuse.


Abortion:

I believe having an abortion is solely a women decision because it is her body,( her body, her rules) The world is already so overly populated and if many did have children they would be growing up under poor conditions etc. Also there may be many circumstances where she should be allowed to abort for example, rape, life at risk etc.


Immigration:

I am 100% with immigration i think it brings diversity, and every human has the right ot a better life. Also immigration is a part of america, america was founded by immigrants. America is a melting pot for people migrating to build a better life.


So therefore Bernie Sanders stands for what i want and values the things i value, and wants to bring the same changes that i want to happen to the united states of america.
