A wonderful video from the Center for Reproductive Rights. Transcript below the fold.
On Mother’s Day, we celebrate a world in which all women have choicesÉ and we’re not alone.
Students from the Urban Assembly School for Law & Justice visited the Center and shared their thoughts.
Tornelle: My Mom has talked to me about: do I want to have a child? When is the right time?
Bianca: I talk to her about HIV/AIDs and if it’s okay for me to get birth control, just in case anything happens.
Daniela: Yeah, I think my Mom’s a feminist.
Carlene: She believes that everybody has a choice, and everybody can make their own decisions.
Bianca: She had a child, her first child – my sister Rosa – when she was seventeen. So she had a lot of experience and doesn’t want me to go through the same thing.
Deborah: I think I’m pro-choice because it should — you should have that option no matter the circumstance.
Daniela: I have become pro-choice.
Ekugbe: You should have the choice to choose whether or not you’re ready for a baby.
Ashley: My mother has spoken to me about being pro-choice.
Deborah: I’m going to thank my Mother on this Mother’s Day for keeping an open mind.
Bianca: She’s definitely an inspiration.
Ashley: I want to thank my Mom for everything.
Tornelle: Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
The Center for Reproductive Rights thanks moms everywhere for raising a generation that cares about choice.
