In response to Dan Freeman ("Defend religious freedom by opposing religious right," The Daily News, Jan. 20): To a large extent I agree with him. But there are exceptions.
Where in the Constitution does it mention abortion, marriage or health care? The 10th Amendment limits the power of the central government to only things found in the Constitution. Therefore the states have the right to make any drug legal or illegal or which require a prescription.
Both abortion and marriage belongs to the states. Adolf Hitler would approve of that 1973 ruling. The DNA in pre-born children is different than either one of their parents; therefore, these children are not part of a woman's body. Abortion is indeed murder.
Muslim men are allowed to have more than one wife. Religious freedom?
A Christian bakery wouldn't bake a cake for a gay wedding. A judge ruled they had to. Religious freedom? Yes it is discrimination, but what the judge did is also discrimination. When the private sector discriminates it is a form of freedom. When the government discriminates it is a form of Big Brother and loss of freedom.
