As long as this country permits women's bodies to be used as a political pawn and a wedge issue this struggle will never end.

Rachel Gertzog

In the spirit of tikkun olam and the dream that the future will indeed be inhabited by my offspring, I, too, want them to have the choice that Roe v Wade guaranteed us so many years and miles ago. With your drive and spirit, you will encourage all of us to fight that fight to the end of our days. Karen, so well said.


I will fight right alongside of you - just tell me where and when. No one has the right to tell a woman what choice she must make if she is facing an unwanted pregnancy. And I don't care what propaganda the right to life people spread around, it is never an easy choice. Our generation has always had that choice, and I think we've taken it for granted. For our mothers and our daughters we must make sure it will always be there.


Wow, powerful piece. Amen, sista! I'm fighting right there next to you. Thanks for writing.


Karen, This moving post ultimately shows why ensuring that women continue to have reproductive choice is life-affirming. I was particularly struck by your statement that becoming a parent has made you more passionate about making the world a better place. In a similar way, I feel that becoming a parent has only strengthened my commitment to reproductive choice. Being a parent is a huge responsibility and a woman should have the right to make the choice to take on that role or not. It is not in the best interests of the child, the mother, or society to force women to give birth.
