In Which I Am Apparently Not Pro-Choice

Many months ago, a friend of mine posted an entry asserting that anyone who would make a "I'm pro-choice, but..." statement or otherwise has any reservations about their reproductive rights stance should not truly consider themselves "pro-choice". I didn't say anything at the time; I was even less courageous about my advocacy than I am now, and everyone else commenting was falling over themselves in agreement. I didn't have the time, energy, or confidence to speak up then. I guess I still don't entirely have the confidence since I'm saying this here and now rather than at the time or somewhere they're likely to read it. Better late than never, I suppose.

I am pro-choice, and I long for the day when all lives will be seen as having equal dignity and value.
