I work in an organization that has the mission to "work towards the end of sexual violence". Because of my day to day experience, I am very acquainted with the idea that women's bodies are constantly being violated through sexual assault and domestic violence...
An aunt of mine... died of complications of an abortion...
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.
Obviously I grew up when abortion was not legal. In fact, it wasnt even mentioned in my strict southern baptist household...
The government has no business in the personal lives and very human choices of women.
My experiences as a rape crisis counselor contribute greatly to my pro-choice values.
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.
I'm 53 years old and remember when abortion was not legal in all states...
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.
I am pro choice because I'm an independent thinker, that believes in a women's right to control their lives and bodies.
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.
I've had an abortion, had a baby, and adopted a child. Through all of that, my belief has only gotten stronger.
The right to choose is the right to success and prosperity in this country...
I am so thankful that I had a choice about what to do with my body.
