Blog For Choice Today!

Blog for choice day gives us a perfect opportunity to reflect upon the status of "choice" in this country. I wish I could tell you how many young women I have heard argue that there is "no need for feminism." That "women are equal." One needs to look no further than the battle over contraception and abortion to understand that simply isn't true.

For your reading pleasure:

Our government continuously cuts Family Planning funding here and abroad--really removing any choice for women to not get pregnant

We still have to fight.

A totally lovely feminist resource....http://www.girlistic.com/

You're so right! I think we need to fight now more than ever.

If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament. ~Florynce R. Kennedy, 1973 :)

Lili had me read a GREAT article... it is called "If men could menstruate" By Gloria Steinem...I am sure you have already read it but if not..read it!

just another reason for me to hate the wal-mart coporation (you can also thank your sister for being impressionable). i read the post on the "maternity home" on feministing....also where i read the story on the woman from Ghana.
