    Here's what you said and it's really really solid.  We need more like you.  Thanks.

    REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM: As with all freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, I fully support a woman’s right to reproductive choice as set forth by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade in 1973. Reproductive freedom, like any other medical decision, is the fundamental right of every individual to decide -- freely, responsibly, and without coercion. Reasonable people everywhere agree that a woman’s body belongs solely to herself.

    I will work for common-sense approaches to ensure that all individuals are provided with every opportunity for prevention of unintended pregnancy, access to effective birth control and emergency contraception, and to reproductive health services and education for all women. I will also seek to fully subsidize our orphanages and foster care programs, which have been burdened with reduced funding while trying to care for children that have not been adopted.

    No one is "for" abortion. "Pro-choice" and "pro-life" are not mutually exclusive; being "pro-choice" means the right to choose is protected, and solely between a woman and her doctor. In America, no person has the right to force their values on another, and the government has no right to interfere or control a woman’s body any more than it has the right to intrude on our other personal freedoms. To pick and choose which freedoms we are willing to give up to the government puts all of our freedoms at risk.

    The only addition I would have is that abortion should be included in Universal Healthcare.
