Today is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. As they did last year, NARAL Pro-Choice America is calling it "Blog for Choice Day" and asking pro choice bloggers to post on the follwoing:
I will only slightly rephrase my answer for last year's question as to why I'm pro choice:
My answer?And, if like me, you are pro choice, it's important to vote that way because you know damn well that others are voting against your rights.
A woman must have the right to control her own body -- and that necessarily must include anything that may going on inside it.
Yeah, it gets messy if there's a fetus in there, and more messy the older that fetus is.
But you either get to control your body or you don't.
And women and girls face an opposition who believes that a mass of cells smaller then the head of a pin has not just equal rights, but more rights, than the woman or girl herself.
I will never understand that.
I will also never believe that a man would put up with everyone and his uncle trying to micromanage his body.
So I'm pro choice.
