Reposted from Spazeboy.net as I'm utterly swamped by work and political obligations and don't have the energy to be creative today. Besides, he does a good job with the post:
I don’t have a story. I mean, as far as I know, none of the women in my life (mom, sister, fiance, cousins, aunts or friends) has had an abortion.
And although the odds are in favor of me knowing someone who has terminated her pregnancy, one of the reasons I’m pro-choice is because it’s none of my damn business.
Here are a few more reasons:
* I’m pro-choice because the circumstances under which women may need to make a choice are infinite.
* I’m pro-choice because I’m a man who is very much pro-woman.
* I’m pro-choice because I have no interest in establishing government jurisdiction over the uterus.
And one for the Family Institute of Connecticut folks:
* I’m not pro-choice because I’m an atheist, but I did begin to question my religious beliefs because I was a pro-choice Christian.
Today is the 34th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, so if you’ve got a blog you could be participating in Blog for Choice Day too.
Caffeinated Geek Girl from both CT Local Politics and her eponymous blog is participating.
So is Tessa over at My Left Nutmeg.
