blogging for choice 2008

today is the 35th anniversary of roe v. wade, the landmark u.s. supreme court decision which gave women the right to legally own their bodies and reproductive choices.

this year’s blogging for choice topic is: why do you vote pro-choice?

i vote pro-choice because as a 35 year old, i’ve never known a life *without* full reproductive choice. it has always in my lifetime been my body, my choice.

so when i vote pro-choice, i’m not voting for a candidate who supports maintaining a constitutionally protected law…

i’m voting to maintain control over my body. for me, it really is that basic, that simple.

long live roe v. wade.

    Because the government should not have any control over my reproductive system, because I shouldn’t even have to vote for it, because it’s my right as a human being, I vote pro-choice.

    BTW, I like to call pro-lifers “anti pro-choice.” It’s quite fun.
    And, Mike Huckabee, who actually won NH, believes that it’s “easier to rewrite the constitution than it is the bible” and that Roe v. Wade should be overturned. Since he was endorsed by Chuck Norris, there’s a good chance he could actually accomplish this if he does become president. Because, Chuck Norris doesn’t endorse; he tells America how it’s gonna be. http://youtube.com/watch?v=ejyv2yw6aze
