Deep Thoughts….on my soapbox again…

Ok, so my question is, how do you advocate for “reproductive rights” (meaning access to health care for impoverished pregnant women, prenatal care, infant health care, affordable contraception, reproductive education(which should be done by parents-but if their parents are dying of AIDS like in many African countries…), STDs, etc) if you are against abortion? What group does that fit into? We’ve had great discussions in our Women and Family Policy Class, and of course what everyone says out loud is the typical social work doctrine. But we’ve had some really good discussions about thinking outside the box, but abortion is still ‘officially’ viewed as a viable choice. I know for a fact that there are many girls in my classes that are Christians who do not believe in abortion or several other typical “liberal” ideals. But then we’ve got “righty” folks who just don’t seem to understand how much we need to be servants to those in need. grrrr. I guess it’s just tough being a “do-gooder” in today’s bi-polar society. I’ll keep ya posted.
