Because I changed my mind

I have not had an abortion. When I was younger, I thought I never would have an abortion. Now that I am older, I think I would if I were to get pregnant right now.

That being said, what would do is not particularly relevant. I am pro-choice because I will never take away another woman’s options for her own health and future. I would not want someone else to make my choices for me, so I will not make them for someone else.

I recognize that this is subject to reasonable restrictions, which for me depend upon a balance of a woman’s needs and health and fetal viability, which is far more murky than I can decide myself.
