A Woman's Right to Choose

Blog for Choice Day
Today is the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court's ruling of Roe v. Wade, and the arguments over women's reproductive rights are still being debated.

There are many people in America who are fighting to take away a woman's right to choose whether or not she wants to have a child, and the implications of such laws, when passed, would have a lot of negative repercussions. For example, when abortions are banned, the rate of women getting hurt (or worse) as a result of back-alley abortions increases.

Women deserve the basic right of making decisions about their own bodies and what they want to do. Taking such a right away shows that our society still isn't at the point were women are equal to men; where women are allowed to make their own decisions.

Take this day to write your legislators to let them know that women deserve the right of choice.
