Make The Connection
I was having a discussion with someone about the topic of abortion. We both had strong views on the issue; mine being pro and hers being anti. So during this conversation somehow access to birth control came up and we started to discuss it. I explained to her that this was apart of reproductive health and she quickly took the defense and wanted to exclude abortion. My point in this story is to bring forth the commonality in my friends viewpoint and the rest of the people in our communities and the country as well. So many people agree that their is an issue with women having access to ALL of their reproductive health options, but they want to exclude abortion! Abortion is not its own entity; its apart of reproductive health. You can't pick and choose what part of reproductive health you want to give us access to. Its all or nothing and by right, we are suppose to have access to all of our reproductive health options. So people, MAKE THE CONNECTION and support a woman's reproductive health choices.
