  •  I understand, but reading these stories are good (9+ / 0-)

    even if you agree with a woman's right to make choices for her own health, because it illuminates how every woman who has an abortion has a unique story. Unlike the nonsense and propaganda spewed by the anti-choice crowd that tries to make everything about abortion fantastically oversimplified and blissfully detached from the complexities of reality, our stories about our abortions are personal and individual, and that emphasizes how you really can't make blanket standards for what a woman should do regarding pregnancy, abortion and reproductive rights. We need laws that in fact trust woman to be self-determining regrading our reproductive health, and the diversity of our experiences just illustrates why.
