I’m pro-life. From watching the news, I think the majority of people feel differently. On Marco, it’s kind of a touchy subject. We came to Marco because it is a good place to raise a family. I work at the Art League, and I’m a mom. It’s my choice. And my choice is pro-life. Up until a year ago, it wasn’t. But, I’ve been going to church, and learning what it means. You have to understand the whole concept, and not just pick and choose. It’s the whole package. It’s brought my family closer together. I don’t talk about religion or politics that much, because it stirs up hurt feelings and it can offend people.

Where is the next nearest abortion clinic? I think when someone wants an abortion, they will drive to Ft. Myers to do it, so what’s the difference? I don’t think it will have any effect. It’s a U.S. problem, not a local problem. When people want what they want, they’ll drive to get it, anyway.

Even if it’s a drive of 15 minutes, it’s almost like having a liquor store conveniently located. If you have more locations, or more convenience, it will increase the incidence of it’s use. You’re going to increase the number of people going there. So, in that sense, you’re creating a bigger problem. Whether it’s alcohol, gambling or abortion clinics, when we make them convenient, it’s almost like making it socially acceptable. It’s sending a message that it’s okay, and that’s a very bad idea. I’m totally, completely opposed to it. It’s sending the wrong message.
