43. Autonomy for women IS a good thing.
There are SO many reasons why a woman wants and/or needs to terminate a pregnancy, that it really is none of ANYONE'S business except the woman herself.

I have no compunctions about stating flat out that availability of safe and legal abortion IS A GOOD THING.

I came of age when abortion was first being legalized in the more progressive states, and my reaction to this was JOY, RELIEF, and STRENGTH.

Sorry, but I, and millions of other women, are just not going to wring our hands and play Ain't It Awful over legalized abortion rights. America DID do better when US female citizens finally realized bodily autonomy. We don't need or want your morose puling over your personal emotions regarding the human, civil and Constitutional rights of US female citizens.

Be a Democrat, or be gone.
