We asked why you support #VOTEPROCHOICE. Here's what you had to say:
I support people's rights to vote and have their voices heard.
Because everyone has a right to be heard.
The choice of when or if a family is started belongs solely between a woman and her doctors.
Every person should be in control of their own body, always.
I remember the time before Roe. Young women died or suffered serious illnesses or injuries from unqualified abortion providers. Outlawing abortion doesn't stop abortions. It only stops safe abortions. That's not acceptable.
Because women's rights are human rights.
Women have the right to decide what they will or will not do for their bodies. I feel like taking that right away is a huge step backward.
I value a woman's right to choose what is best for her body. Not everyone shares the same convictions or has the same moral compass, and it is not up to me or anyone else to be policing the natural bodily functions of another human being, regardless of how I feel about it.
I know too many people including myself who needed this procedure.
I remember when there were no safe choices. That is my main reason, but I want to safeguard to days' youth. Many women were lost, and many children grew up without a mother.
Women need control over their own lives and bodies.
Because it is a sensible thing to advocate for.
I'm a woman who values reproductive freedom.
Keep laws off my body
MY LIFE, MY BODY, MY CHOICE!!!!!!
You're fighting to protect my rights!
This is a very important issue for reproductive health. All women have the sacred right to decide what they wish for their health!!!!
Bodily autonomy is a human right that should be accessible to all of us by law. It is currently accessible to men but not to women.
Health care is a human right, and a woman needs the right to decide when to have a child, and when not to, and to keep it her own choice
I have been in this fight since the 70s. No one except me should have the right to tell me what I can do with my uterus
Because it's a basic women's freedom to choose to have a child or not. It's no one else's business if I have a child or not, they will not raise it, nor will they carry it to term nor will they pay any the bills. This is an individual choice. It’s legal in every developed country in the world, why are we going backward.
Reproductive rights are human rights and denying women the choice is denying them proper health care and decision-making about themselves.
Yes, I support a female's right to bodily autonomy! The government doesn't even consider regulating men's bodies.
I firmly believe that every person who seeks an abortion--for whatever reason--must have access to the procedure: safe and low-cost. It is a fundamental human right for the pregnant person to be able to choose to have a child or an abortion. Anything less than choice violates human and civil rights.
I support a woman's right to choose. I have 3 nieces and a future daughter-in-law. I don't want them to be in a position where if they unexpectedly get pregnant that they have the option to terminate that pregnancy safely.
You are doing the right thing
Because I believe that everyone should have the freedom to decide if and when to reproduce.
It's the right thing to do!
women's autonomy over their bodies and life choices is a human right.
I believe this is an entirely private decision or choice by the woman and her doctor. As a retired nurse, this choice has nothing to do with government or politics. It is the woman's choice.
The decision should rest with the woman it affects.
Women will never have equality without choice.
Because my health care should only be between me and my doctor!
I believe women need the right to choose.
