one more time with feeling: PRO-CHOICE BLOG

i’m pro-choice.
i’m all for people making choices in their lives.

and, you know, they don’t have to make the same choices as me.

they can have their OPINION.

i love that i have choices. i get to choose friends, and partners, and clothes, and food, and furniture, and politicians, and hair salons and doctors and restaurants and medication and pets and cars and all sorts of things, i get to choose where i live and what i say and who i love. my choice. and i just love that. and sometimes i make choices and wow oh fucking wow are they the wrong choices, so i get to make new choices, and hopefully i get to learn from my mistakes, and if not, well, then i get to make more choices.

and it seems to me that those who are so clearly pro-life get to choose too. boy oh boy do they choose. they get to choose who they love and what they wear and who they don’t like and what they say and who they vote for and where they eat and where they picket and what they burn and what kind of cars and houses they buy and what news and radio they listen to and the company they keep. and you bet a lot of their choices i don’t agree with.

not my choices.

so, it looks like everyone is choosing. holy shit … everyone it seems is pro-choice.

and to clarify, i’m pretty pro-life also, i love (okay, maybe not every single day….) waking up in the morning, i love that i get to kiss my husband and friends (yes, on the lips, thank you very much!), that i get to watch the sun rise and set, that i get to write and speak and share my thoughts, visit my friends, go to the movies, and theater and laugh and cry and help someone else get through a day. i’m pretty found of life. i think life is extraordinary, even in the worst of times. i’m all for life.

yep, yep, that sounds pretty pro-life to me.

someone said to me yesterday that she was pro-life and … tada.. “didn’t think i was,” which by the way, i can understand, so, i kinda looked at her and asked, well, why, what makes you think that? and she said, well, because you’re clearly pro-choice, and i said to her, well yes, I am pro-choice, and she asked, well how can you be “pro-life and pro-choice” and i said:

well, you know, i’m also all for pro-bowling, and pro-tennis, and pro-golf, and all for pro-bono work (which is very different than sonny bono work), and pro-skating and pro-duce, and pro-phylactics, and pro-mo and pro-ton, and pro-baseball…

and she kinda looked at me and said, “yeah, well, what about an abortion? you think that that’s okay? is that what you’re saying?”

and i looked right at her and said, “you my dear are trying to kill my opinions, wouldn’t you call that an abortion?”

i left it at that.

    It scares me that we are preparing to fight this battle again. We must give women, all women, who have to make difficult choices, a place to be heard and taken care of in the best way possible. I, too , am pro-choice and I am tired of fighting the same old fight over and over.

    Back off you frickin bullies and find some other cause to screw up!

    Give em hell…

    I say f…y…. to all those who are not pro choice. Men don’t get to choose in this matter because it is the woman’s right to her own body choices. I wish this wasn’t an issue anymore except in cases of rape, incest and dire conditions of the Mom or fetus. I wish more people chose birth control and stuck to it. But in the end it is a woman’s right to choose. Period end of statement.

    Love this. And timely.

    I am prochoice, pro woman and pro opinion. The right to privacy should extend to a woman’s body. Government needs to crawl out of the uterus and get back into the business of leadership. Jesse

    I’ll bet she stuck her toung out at you when you left. I’m so glad that I’m of the male persuasion and don’t have to worry about such things. Very tough. Very tough to make such decisions. I could not do it but I don’t condem those that do. They should make a pill to keep women from getting pregnant. Maybe I’ll work on that, it could mean a Nobel Prize. Yeah. I just happen to have a left over nomination form.

    May we all be pro-choice, allowing the choice of word, the life of opinion and the freedom to each act according to our own beliefs.

    And on a side note, I’ll bet no one would argue if all those in favor of LIFE would first attend to the suffering of babies that are already born. Health care, food, early intervention reading programs, college funds…oh, the words go on and on.
