I'm a feminist, and I am pro-choice.
I'm Catholic, and I am pro-choice.
I'm a millennial living through the Trump administration, and I am pro-choice.
I'm pro-choice because I believe that if it's not your body, then it's not your decision. You wouldn't tell someone what they should do if they had a disease like cancer because it's not you going through it, you have no right to tell them what to do. So why is a pregnancy any different?
I'm pro-choice not because I "hate babies" and "love abortion." I love babies. I want a baby to be born to someone who wants it, who is prepared for it and can give it a good life.
I'm pro-choice because I know that not all babies are born to a loving, consensual partnership. I believe that if someone who was raped does not want a physical reminder of that, then it's their decision to remove it.
I'm pro-choice because I also know that late-term abortions are only a thing if the pregnancy is a danger to either the baby or the mother. I know that no one goes to the doctor when they're weeks away from their due date and asks for an abortion "just because."
I'm pro-choice because no one is excited to get an abortion. No one wakes up and thinks, "Yes! I'm getting an abortion today!"
I'm pro-choice because shutting down Planned Parenthood is not going to stop girls from getting abortions; it'll just stop them from getting safe abortions.
I'm pro-choice because I don't need old men who don't have the faintest idea of how women's bodies work making laws that will tell me what to do with mine.
I'm pro-choice because if a girl gets accidentally pregnant and decides she wants to keep it, then that's great, and the fact that she was able to make the decision herself is all that matters.
I'm pro-choice because it's what is right, and it's my body, my rules.
