One in a Million

One year ago (plus one day), I was in Washington DC with one million other people, showing the government and the world that the Pro-Choice movement is alive and well. And loud.

This was the second March for Choice I'd been on and it affected me even more the second time, mostly because of what I had learned during the intervening 12 years. I now know women and families whose lives have been touched by abortion, it's no longer an abstract concept to me. It's a heartbreaking choice, but a choice it is and should continue to be.

Favorite sign from the March:
Front: God is a woman
Back: Bush is a moron

Important sites:
Planned Parenthood
Feminist Majority
NARAL Pro-Choice America
National Organization of Women

Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona
NARAL Pro-Choice Arizona

Please visit these sites, learn, spread the word, donate if you can and belive that we can change the world.

This is What Democracy Looks Like
