Abortion is Not a Dirty Word

May 5, 2010

Whether you’re pro-choice or pro-life, I found this quote to be thought-invoking on every level and wanted to share:

Abortion is not a dirty word and I am sick and tired of watching holier than thou white men in Congress  pretending that they have any concept of what a woman goes through when making such an important decision. For some women it is a time of great sadness – a pregnancy gone wrong, a wanted child not to be.  For some women it is a time of great relief – a decision to delay parenthood.  It is a deeply, personal decision made for deeply, personal reasons.  And, yes,  for some women it is a decision they choose not to make – again for deeply personal reasons.

From blogger Helen Philpot, who is 82 years old. You can read the whole entry here.


Updates have been few and far between and will be for the next week or so due to finals and working. But afterwords, expect lots of new changes, content, and at last the return of cursing and touchy-subjects now that I am free from the restrictions of writing for school.

In the mean time, you can follow me on my Twitter or become a fan on Facebook!
