Why am I pro-choice?

Because faced with a pregnancy scare at 19, I knew that I had to have an abortion. As soon as possible or my life would be a wreck.

All those years of Catholic doctrine and teaching went right out the window when my own ass was on the line.

Thankfully, I was not pregnant. But that experience taught me a lot. I was in the other person's shoes.

Been an ex-catholic and very pro-choice ever since.

Despite my own wishes and common sense, I got political on Thanksgiving.

And I swore to myself I would not. I kept my peace until late, at least.

Hearing my father and a cousin rant about how unfair the media is to Trump drove me over the edge.

I said that is such bullshit. In my view, he is getting a pass from the media.

I also said I am absolutely ashamed that a racist, sexist, misogynist bigot is president of this country. And I am ashamed a that religious fanatic anti-choice woman hater is vice president.

They argued with me and I told them to enjoy it while they can. 3 million+ voted for Hillary and we will never let this happen again.

I left a little early. Conflicted. Feeling sorry for losing it but glad I spoke up.

Went home, poured a glass of wine and listened to Ani Defranco.

Just got back from girls night out with friends.

The word on everyone's lips is IMPEACHMENT. All of my GFs, everyone around us, the bartender. We all agree Trump has to resign or be impeached. Drive this insane administration from office. Please.
