Blog for Choice Day 2010!

by Dick Mac

Each year, NARAL Pro-Choice America poses a question to pro-choice bloggers before the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and then asks them to blog their answer on January 22nd.

What does Trust Women mean to me?

Do I trust women to make the right decisions in their own lives? Do I trust women with the life of my child? Do I trust women with my life?

The answer to all of these questions is yes. I trust women to make the decisions they need to make every day of their lives. For politicians to imply that women can't be trusted to make good choices, by removing their right to make decisions about their reproductive systems, is insulting and immoral.

All women are trusted to make the choices they have to make.

The choices a woman makes about reproduction and her own body are nobody's business but her own. It is the responsibility of every American to stand-up and proclaim that women have the right to control their own bodies, their own reproduction, and make their own choices.

Celebrate Roe v. Wade's 37th anniversary by letting people know that a woman's right to choose is a core value that must be protected and advanced.

I agree with you, mostly ... but not when it comes to partial-death abortion, the very name of which is just plain stupid (not to mention the actual operation itself is immoral). How can you have a partial death?
One thing, at which point is there a fully conscious being in their, when does the decision to terminate become the taking of a another human life.
Maybe those questions need a broad agreement with in the non-conservative peoples, until then the conservative/religious extremist we have a certain legitimate argument.
