I Am A Pro-Life Feminist

And that doesn't make me any less of one than pro-choice feminists.

I Am A Pro-Life Feminist
Huffington Post

Yes, you read that correctly. I am a pro-life feminist, and that doesn't make me any less of a feminist than you are. I don't believe the right to an abortion should be an issue related to the feminism movement.

I will stand up for equal rights for every human being, and that is why I am both pro-life and a feminist. I believe a human is a human life-form at the very moment of conception. That is when he or she is given all their DNA and traits that makes them who they are. This is another human being inside of a much older human being, and that doesn't give women the right to kill the other person inside their body. This is a matter of which is true, factual information--what science says or my beliefs; it isn't about women's equality and rights.

At the same time, I want women to have equal pay as men if they hold the same job at the same company with the same degree and experience. That should be logical, but some people don't seem to get that through their heads.

I want women to be treated with respect. "Boys will be boys" is an invalid answer to stereotyping a woman as a "sexual image." This is wrong. I want to be able to wear a normal tank-top and bend over to pick something up that I dropped without having to worry if there is someone around. I want to be seen as an intelligent young lady who is willing to work hard on other things beside having kids and cleaning house. If I want to be the first female President of the United States, you can bet I will work for it just as hard as a man will. If I want to be the one who finds the cure to cancer, you can bet I will work for it just as hard as a man will. If I want to be the owner of a billion-dollar company, you can bet I will work for it just as hard as a man will. Who knows, I might even work harder than a man will.

I want women to have social equality and rights as citizens of this great nation. I don't believe the same as pro-choice feminists on abortions , but that hasn't anything to do with what feminism is truly about at its core. According to dictionary.com, feminism is defined by, "thedoctrineadvocatingsocial,political,andallotherrightsofwomen equaltothoseofmen." Do men have other human growing inside of them? No. It's another human, which isn't you as a female.

I stand for women's rights, equality, and the rights for all humans.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
