    I'm old enough to remember when abortions were illegal in some states. I transported young women to New York so that they could have a safe, legal abortion. I highly value easy accessibility to contraception, so that today's young women will not have to resort to abortion at the same rate those of my generation did.

      I have no children of my own, but I have nieces and great-nieces who I want able to make their own decisions regarding their health -- and nephews and great-nephews who should be able to help their future love partners with similar decisions.

      We're talking women's health here, people -- ever hear the drug ads where the disclaimer goes "do not take this drug if you are pregnant or may become pregnant"? What if some law decided that women could not get the medical treatment that's best for her because, well, she might become pregnant?

      ...non-profit abortion clinic in '73-'74. It's still running today. No way this baby boomer is going to take the attitude that mattered so much then matters less now.
