If you agree with this statement, post it in your journal:
I am pro-choice. I would help a woman get an abortion. I don't have any harrowing stories. I just think it's too private a thing to be legislated unless there's some pretty outstanding circumstances involved. I know that for my mom, the pill was dibilitating in it's 1960's form: mood swings, nausea, heavy clotting blood. She couldn't handle it. And she was married. Catholic marriages and all: we all came one right after the other. She considers herself pro-life; as does my sister.
It's not even just an ignorance about birth control thing. And I seriously don't think that those who choose to have an abortion of "convenience" (as if it's fun)would automatically be bad parents. Things happen. I wouldn't want anyone deciding for me. Luckily even my mom and sister agree that it's ridiculous to make someone feel bad who's had one.
*If you have never had a uterus but you want to participate, feel free to substitute the statement "I am pro-choice. I would help a woman get an abortion" instead of "I'm pro-choice, and I would have an abortion." The implications are slightly different, but solidarity is just as important.
