Blog For Choice Today!

Happy Anniversary of Roe v. Wade! In honor of the occasion I encourage everyone to blog for choice. The powers that be have asked that the posts be related to the the overall theme of "why I am pro choice."

I am pro choice because...

Sex isn't wrong. Sometimes sex should end in a pregnancy and sometimes it shouldn't. And it is not the government's job to tell the difference between the two. And I trust women to know when they should have a baby and when they shouldn't. And the bottom line is this--pro life people can exist in a pro choice world but pro choice people cannot exist in a pro life world. Pro life is anti choice. Pro life is anti trust.

I hope that lots of other people talk about how the root of abortion politics is oppression and patriarchy. That is also true. But I am pro choice because I am pro trust.

I just saw a bumper sticker the other day that sums this up:

"How can you trust me with a child if you can't trust me with a choice?"

I felt it was the most appropriate bumper sticker I've seen relating to this topic.

Thought that quotation was very ironic!
