“My Body, My Choice” Right?
It's been three weeks since that dreadful day when Roe vs. Wade was overturned. If I'm being honest, I'm still trying to process it. As a woman, it has been fearful for not only me but the millions of other women who also got the choice to have a safe and legal abortion taken away from them.

The continuous advice many have given is to educate yourself on abortion in your state. Read on the restrictions in your state, if any, and how that affects you personally.

The choice that if I wanted to or if I didn't. I had the choice, and now that choice is taken away." Since watching that program, I continue to ask myself, "Does my body have a choice anymore?"
