Day 2 - Illegal things that should be Legal

Something that's illegal but you think it should be legal.

This one is hard. Things that are illegal are illegal for a reason. I've always been a "good girl" if it's illegal I won't do it, I've been "pressured" into smoking dope, but walked away, and I'm proud of myself for doing so. I don't see the point of questioning laws and authority, they are there for a reason. But in saying that, I would like to be able to make my own choices.

I believe that same-sex marriage should be allowed. I've been hearing a lot about it on the news and online. It seems stupid that even though 2 people can love each other so much, that they can't be married and legally recognised as a couple. What is wrong with it? The church says its against the teaching of god or whatever, but this has nothing to do with the church. It's about being recognised as a married couple. I don't think you will find very many Roman Catholic same-sex couples (I'm sure there is some). The church and the government shouldn't be the same thing!

Another thing. The ability to choose whether or not I can get an abortion, or euthanasia. I don't personally believe in them, but I want others to be able to choose whether they can.
