    okay, as for abortion.  i have a good friend who has worked for years in the the milwaukee catholic hospital system.  we were talking over dinner last week (my mothers birthday dinner of all things) and she went on about how the people that get abortions are middle class white women.  young, african american girls do not get abortions at the rate that young white women do.  and  in milwaukee they are young, white, CATHOLIC women.  this is from the front lines
    here is the thing.  i don't give a shit who gets an abortion.  any woman who doesn't want to have a child should get an abortion.  i have had two children and love them dearly.  it is a hard thing to have children. i have lots support and luckily we have the means at this point to take care of them.  not all women are as lucky.  i and i would hope, everyone else could see that.  i realize there are people who feel very strongly that life begins at conception but then shouldn't child support begin at conception? shouldn't male parental insurance support being at conception?  it doesn't.  and so the law doesn't believe it doesn either.
    i am sick of this conversation.  i am sick of the double standards.  i am sick of men trying to make my body their property.
