Today is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that gave women the right to choose and access to legal and safe abortions. Happy anniversary!
And yet, the battle to retain those rights wages on. It’s not about what I would or wouldn’t do if I was faced with such a difficult decision. It’s about someone else that doesn’t know me or my life telling me what I can and cannot do. Choosing whether or not to have an abortion is a personal decision. Just like choosing to have children is a personal decision. The government has no place inserting itself into my personal life and decisions.
Of course, that’s my personal opinion. And you must form your own opinions. But do so in an informed manner. Educate yourself and think for yourself. It’s not anyone’s place to tell you what to think, anymore than it’s anyone’s place to tell you whether or not you have the right to to choose whether or not to have a child.
