Last Friday marked the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and was the 5th annual Blog for Choice Day. Pro-choice bloggers were asked to answer the question: What does “trust women” mean to you? This year’s question is in honor of the late Dr. George Tiller who frequently wore a pin that said “trust women”.
Kay Steiger compares Blog for Choice Day as a New Year’s for the pro-choice movement, where pro-choicers re-energize and renew their resolutions on how to move forward. Yet today pro-choicers find themselves with very little reason to celebrate, and plenty to be depressed about. As pro-choice activist Reverend Katherine Ragsdale puts it, “Abortion is a blessing, and our work is not done.”
In honor of Blog for Choice Day and in memory of Dr. Tiller, I answer what “trust women” means to me.
