Having an abortion is a political statement?

Is it me or does that what Merle Hoffman (the founder and CEO of an abortion clinic in New York) appears to be saying here:
Theory must become practice at one point in time. Our bodies are the place where the power structures make their marks with their laws, their religions, traditions and their prejudices.

Our bodies are lines in the sand. Each one of us proclaims that the power of the state stops at our skin when we lay our bodies down for an abortion, saying, with that action, that it is we who will decide when and whether to bear children.
