Yes, I am pro choice, and sick over it.
Blood pressure. Skyrocketing.
Brain matter on ceiling.
I am watching PBS' Frontline "The Last Aborti0n Clinic", and I think I'm about to have a stroke. The anti choice faction in the US has just about succeeded in taking us back to pre-R0e, not by attacking R0e itself, but by coming in the back door, making obtaining an aborti0n nigh onto impossible for many women. This article in Salon explains it quite well.
I feel sick. And at this point, I could just blow off the issue, because it isn't going to be pertinent to my life. Husband is snipped, I take the pill, and if we did find ourselves pregnant, well, then, I'd consider it a definite message from The Powers That Be and move on from there. But this is INFURIATING me.
I feel powerless. I give my money to NARAL....what else can we do?
I am absolutely pro CH0ICE. And that means keep the baby, give the baby up for adoption, or choose an ab0rtion. I am NOT pro ab0rtion. But I AM pro ab0rt1on rights. Yes. Absolutely. And I am SO tired of seeing white men with their ant1 ch0ice placards. I don't think they have ever been a scared woman whose partner beats the crap outta her and can't feed the two kids she has. They've never been a high school student who doesn't want to (and shouldn't have to) pay for the rest of her life for a poor decision she made one night.
Sick. I just feel sick.
