WHAT IS YOUR POSITION ON THIS ISSUE?

I believe that everyone no matter your race, religion, or gender should be able to do what you believe is right for you and not anyone else. Growing up I knew that people were different from others and I learned to except that and I believe that other people should respect that people are going to be different and that's not a bad thing. In order to fix the problem I think people should be respectful of other people's choices.
