On Wednesday, Michigan's pro-choice organizations got together and threw a rally at the Capitol. I was somehow completely unaware of this event. They even step up a web site and a blog for the event.
One post in their blog asks commenters to share why they are pro-choice.
Here are some interesting quotes.
I'm pro-choice because I believe that it is a woman's choice to determine whether or not it is the right time to have a child.... Also, abortion is not a form of birth control, society needs to prevent unintended pregnancies so that the need for abortions will decrease.
I don't believe abortion should be a form of birth control, and I do feel that people need to take action for their sexual decisions and make those decisions responsibly instead of relying on abortion to avoid unwanted children....Abortion will always be a necessity in some cases...
I felt as if an abortion was the only option to save my sanity.
I'm pro-choice because there are certain circumstances in which bringing a new child into the world is a mistake (i.e. rape, complications in relation to the health of the mother.
I wonder if they ever thought of the poor women who cannot fed another baby, the women who are addicted to substances that will harm the developing fetus. (emphasis mine)
