Happy Anniversary

Blog for Choice Day - January 22, 2007

Today is the 34th anniversary of Roe v Wade. At Bush v Choice, they want to know why you are pro-choice.

Here's my why.

There are many others who have better reasons, who are better writers and more eloquent than I, but I am pro-choice. And my reasons are simple.

I dont feel it is my place to tell ANYONE what can and cant be done with their body.

I mock those who get plastic surgery. I dont understand people who feel they need to have a limb amputated to be themselves.

But its not my place to stop them. To ridicule them. To tell them that what they do is illegal.

"But!" people say, "we're talking about a BABY, not plastic surgery!"

and if we're talking 3rd trimester, Ill buy that. I do believe that if the baby can survive out of the woman's body, then yes, its a baby.

And Im saying that as a pregnant woman in her second trimester who would be very upset to lose her baby/fetus/whatever.

I can not and will not make decisions for someone else. Someone I dont even know.

Am I a fan of abortions?


Would I ever get an abortion?

I dont know.

But its not my place to tell you that you cant. I might be able to give you some reasons why I wouldnt, but you arent me.

I am pro-choice because you are not me, and I dont know what is going on in your head, or why you would need an abortion.

I am pro-choice because the idea of someone telling me what to do with my body is repulsive.

I am pro-choice because its my body and my own damn business.
