Y'see this is what I meant by making women either tragic or "bad". I chose abortion when I wasn't in extreme poverty. When although it would have been an huge struggle, it wouldn't have been impossible for me to raise a child (although having a child at that time would've severely limited my opportunities, thus severely limiting the opportunities of the child as well). However, I knew very, very strongly that I did not want to raise a child, that I was not ready, and that I absolutely could not accept such a thing happening to my body.
I think, from May's remarks that she would classify this choice as "frivolous". Now, if she were just a private person, I'd either ignore her - or, if she insisted on getting in my face about it tell her to fuck off - but she isn't just a private person. She's choosen public life and with that comes certain responsibilities. The Green's August resolution essentially expressing the same thing also carries certain responsibilities. Whether they realize it or not, by opening up a "friendly debate" on my personal liberty to my body, they are doing something that as a feminist and as a woman I find deeply, personally threatening. So I want honesty, I want Ms. May to state exactly what she thinks to should happen to "frivolous" women like myself. No more side-stepping.
(Actually, I'm thinking - if I can get ahold of them - of blogging a comparison of all parties positions on choice. Ideally, all I want to see from any of them is a single sentence affirmation of the bodily liberty of women. Another sentence on increasing access and fining provinces who fail to provide access for bonus point.)
