State Mandated Malpractice

Tonight's issue is about abortion. I have always talked about abortion in a juvenile way in my comics and in my sad ass attempts to make humorous blog postings. I'm trying to rectify that with this comic.

I am pro choice. Firmly pro choice and it upsets me to see Roe V. Wade slowly being eroded. At first, as a teenager, I was for it simply because I figured women would do it anyway. I thought it would be best for women to have that procedure done by a medical professional rather than some shady back alley abortionist.

To me now, it is about the right to control your own body. Everyone should have that right. Things happen, and I don't think that the anti choice side is sympathetic to that.

I don't think the Christian Right has very healthy or realistic attitudes towards sex. I think the abortion issue has more to do with that than anything else.

I am also mindful of Roe V Wade on this night where Gay Marriage has become legal. There is always a group of people dedicated to impeding and turning back the forces of progress. This group always exists, and unless we are vigilant, sometimes they can win.
