    I do not support abortion.

    I believe in the death penalty for forcible felony's and incurable character disorders involving felony forcible crimes.

    Health care is not a right, but you should pay for it.

    No freeloaders.

    Abortion: Yes.

    Death Penalty: No(In some specific cases yes but there wasn't an option).

    Health Care : A Right. Nobody should die because they can't afford to be treated.

    I support medically necessary abortions, also, if the fetus is tested to be found with an iincurable and debilitatating condition. Otherwise I support contraceptives and personal responsibility for their actions.

    I cannot support the death penalty for the simple matter of the slim potential of a wrongful death in the process. That said, there are people that are completely incurable detriments to society, at a certain point when there is no purpose in rehab and the person has been convicted under no uncertain terms, then it may be justifiable to simply end their life rather then care for them in a prison for life.

    Health care : I think certain services should be socialized... mostly emergency services... anything beyond that should be handled privately... I mean a system where if you have an emergency but no money that you wouldn't be pushed aside, but that would still be privatized enough that people are responsible for certain costs.

    Re: TED's Life-or-Death Super Trifecta!

    Now I oppose abortion and would never encourage someone to get one, but for various reasons I don't think it should be outlawed... I chose yes, but it wasn't really clear.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    No, No, Always a right if you can pay for it.

    A right imo is something the government must allow you the freedom to exercise however that does not mean they should give you the tools to exercise them with. Freedom of speech and religion, Right to bare arms just to name a couple. They give you the choice but they do not purchase you a gun nor a bible. You have the freedom to exercise the right, the rest is up to you. Banning all medical practices would be a violation of the right to life. Not providing the service with tax money is not.

    I am completely in favor of a woman's right to choose.

    I am completely in support of the death penalty and I don't think that it gets used nearly enough or nearly quickly enough.

    Outside of true emergency health care, which I think ought to be provided regardless, I think it's a service that ought to be paid for like any other service.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Abortion - yes in the first 2 trimesters
    Death penalty - yes
    Healthcare - torn on this one.

    Other: All should be deferred to the states.
    1) Abortion - states should have a yes/no vote every 5-10 years and the outcome is settled law.
    2) Death Penalty - while up to states, fed has some oversight, but is limited to that which is not proven by DNA, the standard of "cruel and unusual" needs to be tightened up as part of a greater need for tort reform, and we need to apply it to a few more crimes, such as forcible rape, constitutional violations, reapply to treason/sedition, working for the IRS(j/k), and pre-meditated murder, with armed robbery a potential qualifier for such.
    3) Healthcare - this is a service, therefore it should never be considered the right of the government to meddle with it, unless it is done through constitutional amendment processes and the states defer such to the federal.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
