Today is the 34th anniversary of Roe v Wade.
While this is predominately a celebration for American women, I believe that women worldwide can share in the celebration.
In the words of Virginia Woolf, “As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.”
The topic this year is a simple one, “why I am pro-choice.”
I am pro – choice because I believe children have a right to know they were wanted. That they weren’t born because of some imagined obligation to church or to god or because some law ruled their mother had to carry them to term.
I am pro – choice because I do not believe that my daughters have less right to decide their futures than my sons.
The simple answer is I am pro choice because I could not be anything else.
I have written to this subject before here, here,and here
to name a few.
I would say to sum up those posts that abortion is a woman’s right. A human right.
A society which would seek to suppress human rights is neither democratic nor just.
And human rights are not up for discussion or debate, they just inherently are.
