Blog for Choice Day...

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.

Blog for Choice Day - January 22, 2007

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.


  1. Ooooh. Thanks for that. Heading over there right now.

  2. Yes! Thanks for this. My favorite line: "Shockingly, I managed to make it through high school without getting pregnant." I don't know about you, but I always had $300 in reserve in high school, just in case.
