… in my usual blogging topic: a dear friend says it’s “blog for choice” day and wonders what I think about that.


Let me use a picture. I’m guessing no one working aboard a ship likes the prospect of entering that orange lifeboat, but it’s there to offer a safe choice in an emergency. I recall the time before 1973 in this country when women sometimes died because they didn’t have a safe, legal choice. I also know of women in other countries who died because they didn’t have the choice that now exists in this country. I’m not thrilled about the choice–I doubt anyone is–but I wouldn’t want the alternative.
