Why Do You Vote Pro-Choice?

For the past two years, I've blogged for choice on the anniversary Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal. Today, on the 35th anniversary, NARAL Pro-Choice America is calling on bloggers to answer this question: Why do you vote pro-choice? I'll be featuring links to blog posts throughout the day, but to kick things off - here's why I vote pro-choice.

I vote pro-choice because I believe in bodily integrity;

I vote pro-choice because I want the Hyde Amendment to be repealed;

I vote pro-choice because I support healthy choices for women;

I vote pro-choice because anti-choice laws disproportionately affect young women, women of color, low-income women and women who live in rural areas;

I vote pro-choice because I don't want women to die;

I vote pro-choice because I think the Global Gag Rule is harming and killing women worldwide;

But perhaps most importantly, I vote pro-choice because I trust women to make the decision about what's best for them and their families.

Why do you vote pro-choice?
