Blog for Choice Day

Today is the 34th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark court decision on abortion and privacy rights. Bush v. Choice, a pro-choice website, is asking its readers to blog for choice today. I have been firmly pro-choice since as long as I can remember. I didn't inherent my support for abortion rights from my father though. As a teenager, I once asked him where he stood on the question of abortion. He responded by saying, "I'm against abortion 100%, unless of course it's my girlfriend who's pregnant!"
