Individual Rights & Protections

I like that he’s trying to improve the criminal justice system to help the incarcerated better themselves for a brighter future. But that’s it. Letting women kill their babies just because is shameful. Every life deserves a chance. Why punish someone for destroying a life, when you don’t punish those who destroy a life earlier on. Makes no sense, killing is killing. It should only be in a doctors hands to save lives, not a killing machine to end lives.
