  •  I've said this as well to my husband (4.00)
    I am not interested in living in a country that wants to undermine the health and well-being of women and treat them like property.

    I am currently in the process of shoring up my international friendships -- just in case.

    •  To put into context ... (4.00)
      Well before I met her, I was strongly 'pro-choice' and have done more 'pro-choice' type rallies / activities than probably any other 'single issue'.

      I rate this -- a woman's right to choose -- as a fundamental bell weather for privacy rights and for the relationship between religion and the state.  

      I am morally 'uncomfortable' re abortion -- really like the idea of 'legal, safe, and rare' -- but clearly understand that my 'discomfort' does not mean that I have the right to tell someone else what to do with their body and their life decisions. And, now, as the father of two (beautiful, amazing, etc ...) daughters, I know that I don't want anyone having that power over their decisions.

      We have overseas paths -- just would prefer not to have to follow them.
