Today is the 34th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion and NARAL Pro-Choice America is asking bloggers to post why they are pro-choice.
Why I'm pro choice:
I was lucky enough to have been raised by a liberal mother in a liberal household with three sisters. My mother was a feminist before being a feminist was cool and had strong beliefs about women being responsible for our own bodies and personal politics. Shockingly, I managed to make it through high school without getting pregnant, but I knew if it had happened to me I would have had my mother's support no matter what I chose to do. I wish all women had that same sense of security and support.
It's hard for me to imagine a world where someone else was entitled to make decisions about my body because I've never lived in one, but I do know that I will do every single thing within my power to help make sure we always have the right to make our own choices.
My uterus, my business. End of story.
