In honor of Blog for Choice day, here's today's off-the-cuff writing.
I believe in choice for a number of reasons:
A woman's body belongs to her. As such, she has the right to determine whether or not she wishes to become a mother and when.
If a woman doesn't want to have a child, why would one think she would be a good mother to that child? Eighteen years is a long time to live with someone who would rather you had not been born.
Birth control education and availability is a disgrace, especially for those who are young or of limited means.
Abstinence works for some people, doesn't work for others.
Abstinence is not an option for those who are raped, forced by partners, etc.
