Blogging for Choice

Today is Blogging for Choice day, a day when people are supposed to talk about their personal experiences with pregnancy.

I have never been pregnant. I took the "morning after" pill twice in college, both times due to a broken condom. I've never had a real pregnancy scare. Over the past decade the issue of contraception and unintentional pregnancy hasn't existed in my life-- one of the bonuses of being a lesbian. I did try to get pregnant via AI a few years ago and intend to try again when the time is right.

I am and have always been wholeheartedly pro-choice. All of the women in my family are pro-choice. To me being pro-choice means exactly that-- I am in favor of choice, of a woman's right to privacy and the right to control what happens to her body. I have worked on behalf of a woman's reproductive clinic and have participated in clinic defense of Planned Parenthood clinics. I also strongly support policies that help to prevent unwanted pregnancies-- through comprehensive sex education and inexpensive, effective contraception-- and would like to see a day when abortion is legal but rare.
