Blogging for Choice, Part 1

Happy Roe day!

I’ll be putting up more pro-choice stuff throughout the day. To start, check out this history of abortion in Kansas. And props to Santa Cruz, which is now officially a pro-choice city.

My official Blog for Choice post, telling readers why I’m pro-choice, will be up soon.

    1998 — A new Kansas law allows late-term abortions only if the abortion is necessary to save a woman’s life or to prevent irreversible impairment “of a major bodily function” of the woman. Gov. Bill Graves and some of those who worked on the bill say “major bodily function” includes mental health; others, including then-Rep. Phill Kline, disagree.

    I love this. Phill Kline thinks a woman’s mental health is not a major bodily function.

    Gee, who could have possibly guessed?

    NPR’s coverage of the anniversary on Morning Edition made me want to scream. They covered some crap about a program which “prevents abortion by preventing pregnancy” which sounds great unless you listen very carefully and say “hmmm.. I wonder, is this program a pro-abstinance program?” then they quoted some guy spouting a carnard about how middle of the road solutions (like this program) never appeal to either firm pro-choicers or firm pro-lifers (his terms). I guess no one ever told him that pro-choicers have been trying to prevent abortion by preventing pregnancy for decades. They closed with a statement about the status quo with most abortions legal and most Americans uncomfortable. They failed to mention how many of those legal abortions are unattainable, and most Americans actually support abortion rights. Grr. My anniversary celebration will entail a strongly worded letter to Morning Edition. I encourage everyone to write a strongly worded letter to someone, and follow it up with a donation to Planned Parenthood, if you can afford it.
