Today, January 22, is the 37th Anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion and has subsequently saved the lives of countless women.
This week has been a remarkably craptacular one for progressive politics, so I wanted to end the week with some rabble-rousing, by asking you to answer this year’s Blog for Choice Day question: What does Trust Women mean to you?
If you have your own blog, you know what to do (hint: Blog for Choice, and go register your blog with the NARAL peeps). If you don’t, please chime in on our comments thread, and/or in your Facebook status, or your Twitter, or your Tumblr, or your T-shirt.
I could write an essay (and I’m sure at some point I will, if I haven’t already) about what “trusting women” means to me, but in a nutshell: trusting women means respecting them enough to allow them the freedom to make choices regarding their fertility that I might disagree with.
Now you go.
