I am so thankful that I had a choice about what to do with my body.
I don't remember a specific turning point in my life when I became pro-choice. I can't imagine a time when I wasn't.
Obviously I grew up when abortion was not legal. In fact, it wasnt even mentioned in my strict southern baptist household...
I am pro choice because I'm an independent thinker, that believes in a women's right to control their lives and bodies.
My mother always taught me it was a woman's right to make choices regarding her body. When I found myself pregnant at 20, it was my choice to terminate the pregnancy.
The right to choose is the right to success and prosperity in this country...
The government has no business in the personal lives and very human choices of women.
I'm 53 years old and remember when abortion was not legal in all states...
I've had an abortion, had a baby, and adopted a child. Through all of that, my belief has only gotten stronger.
I remember how things were for women before legalized abortion.
I can guarantee that my children now have the best possible life I can give them, all because I was allowed to make the choice I made all those years ago.
Why am I pro-choice? I'm pro-choice because I believe that a woman has the right to decide what she wants with regards to her body and her reproductive choices.
My experiences as a rape crisis counselor contribute greatly to my pro-choice values.
