I’m going to need someone to explain this to me.  Seriously.  And, I guess I should specify.  I would like a democrat to explain this to me.  I honestly would, because it just doesn’t make sense to me.  I’m not looking for a fight, just a simple explanation.

Ok, this is what I fail to grasp.

In New York City, the liberal government wants to ban the sale of large sugary drinks.  It’s supposed to help people be healthier.  Apparently, people aren’t capable of making their own choices when it comes to what they drink.  And, it’s not just large sugary drinks.  Trans-fats, too.  And even lunches children bring to school from home are being monitored.  All under the guise of making sure we stay healthy.  So, just to be clear, they believe the government has the right to regulate what you consume.  Do I have that correct?

Next, liberals fight for abortion rights.  Shoot, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, just endorsed Barack Obama and donated $1.4 million to his campaign.  Liberals and the abortion industry seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly.  They fight for the “right” of women to have abortions.  For women to be able to “choose.”  After all, they argue, it’s a woman’s body, and she should decide what happens with it.  Do I have that right?

I’d hate to be going on wrong information here.

SO—-

Why is it not OK for the government to tell a woman what she can do with her body, but it is OK for the government to tell her what she can eat or drink (which, I think would be considered what she can do with her body)?

Is anyone else confused by this?

I find it awfully hypocritical that liberals can fight for abortions under the guise of “it’s my body and I can do what I want,” but they feel perfectly justified and logical in dictating what people can and can’t eat and drink.

So, it’s OK to kill babies, but not to drink large sodas?

Just looking for some clarification and reasoning here.
