31 years after Roe V. Wade

To commemorate 31 years of women's right to choose an abortion in the United States, I bought some NARAL Pro Choice America Lapel Pins.

I will send a pin to the first six people who leave a comment on this entry and say that they will sometimes wear the pin publicly or put it on a bag that they carry.

Note: Comments insulting me or anyone else for being pro-choice or attacking the pro-choice viewpoint will be deleted. Messages discussing personal feelings about one's personal choices with regard to abortion are OK.

Update: The six pins have been spoken for. (But you can order one for yourself by following the link above.)

I'll gladly put one on the purse I carry and, when I don't carry a purse, wear it on my coat or cloak.

I don't know whether CARAL still exists; I haven't heard about them for years. And if not, I can't decide whether that's wonderful or short-sighted.

Why short-soighted? Do you think abortion is in danger of being made illegal here?

No, I don't. But I just got wondering to what extent the current Canadian public versions of social values might swing back rightwards again. Probably I should stop reading dystopian fiction.

I'll gladly wear one. While I doubt abortion is a choice I could make for myself, it's MY choice to make, damnit.

Sure, it should be here by then.

Abso-frickin'-lutely. Despite the fact that (hopefully) the question will never come up for me. ;) I just have to decide where to put it for maximum exposure... probably on my fuzzy black jacket, maybe on my new knit cap... hmmm.

It'd look good on a beret!

I would wear a NARAL pin regularly, either on my coat, my purse, or my bookbag.

I'm in the camp of, "I wish abortions weren't necessary, and I'd personally prefer that they not be used as first-line birth control, but until such time as it is possible to guarantee that every pregnancy is desired and none will endanger the mother, I want abortion to stay legal, safe, and the woman's choice."

Yay! I agree.

I'm proud to say I already have one, and I wear it on the fleece jacket I wear to work every day, occasionally alternating with my rainbow triangle button.

I love working at a university. (-:

My reproductive life predates Roe V. Wade. Having lived through the Bad Old Days, I couldn't be anything *but* pro-choice.

Drat, missed it.

I bought a T-shirt at my friendly neighborhood Planned Parenthood and wore it around a convention once. I got thanked by a PP nurse who was there as well. Nobody dared approach me about it other than positively. This was a few years ago, though.

Thanks for posting that link. I think I'll go acquire a few myself. Maybe I'll put one on my purse for choice (okay, shameless plug, but for a good cause).

I wish that pro-choice and anti-abortion weren't so often seen as opposites.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Unfortunately that's the way the political debate has been structured, and political debates tend to oversimplify things to a damaging degree. At least in the US.
