What It Means to Be Pro-Choice

Rozalyn Farmer Love is a young medical student in Birmingham, Alabama. She means to be an obstetrician-gynecologist. She wants to deliver babies, and work with midwives, and support families. And slowly, haltingly, she's come to the conclusion that that also means providing abortions. It's worth reading her explanation why.

yes ... how compelling to read a serious, personal view formed from reason and compassion, made by a future physician.

Thanks for the link Ezra. I think her feelings and reasoning must reflect a lot of people's actually, because there are many nuances to this subject, but we've lived in times in recent decades where debate has narrowed and shallowed, to the exclusion of nuance. I hope that debate is now broadening, and I look at the current administration as a sign that reason can return to discussion.

Rozalyn Farmer Love has a long road to travel, and I wish her all the strength and good heart that she can find. She will help our society enormously, and relieve much suffering (and surely also earn a place in a just heaven?), by continuing on this difficult and compassionate path.

Good for her. So sad for all the people around her still mired in a misogynistic past. (Speaking of which, if having to be in the closet about even being pro-choice doesn't qualify as a hostile environment, I'm not sure what would.)
