Roe v. Wade is not about abortion, it’s about power

To be pro-choice does not necessarily mean one is pro-abortion. It means that I believe women’s reproductive choices should be her own, not the government’s decision. In addition, those who believe that if you support Planned Parenthood you are pro-abortion are mistaken. Planned Parenthood’s primary goal is to provide ob/gyn healthcare to women, especially those who are low-income. When I became pregnant, they never mentioned abortion to me. They promoted either adoption or keeping the baby and provided information on both. They did not provide information on abortion to me. So please, everyone, make sure you know the facts before trashing an amazing organization.

And for her first two pregnancies, she was unmarried and had to get married, twice, to men…
