Blog for Choice Day 2013

Tomorrow is Blog for Choice Day 2013.

It's a NARAL event.

On January 22, 2013 – the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade– we invite pro-choice bloggers and activists to join us for the eighth annual Blog for Choice Day!

Blog for Choice Day gets more people reading and talking about reproductive rights online on one of the most important days surrounding a woman’s right to choose: the anniversary of the historic Roe v. Wade decision, when the Supreme Court ruled that abortion should be legal. Your participation in Blog for Choice Day lets your readers and the mainstream media know that a woman's right to choose is a core progressive value that must be protected.

As you know, reproductive rights were a critical issue in the presidential election. Thanks to you, we helped re-elect pro-choice President Barack Obama and defeated some of the most extreme and outspoken anti-choice candidates. But our opponents aren’t backing down, and we need to be ready for any attempt to take away women’s access to safe, legal abortion and birth control.

It’s our personal stories that change hearts and minds about the importance of always protecting a woman’s right to choose. That’s why this year we’re asking you to share your story about why you’re pro-choice.

Sign up below to let us know that you plan to write a blog post on January 22 about why you’re pro-choice. We will also promote your blog through our outreach efforts to our supporters.
If you don't maintain a blog or personal website, you can still participate through Facebook or Twitter. Post the Blog for Choice Day graphic on your Facebook wall. Update your status with your story – it can be only a sentence or two. Tag your tweet with #Tweet4Choice.

We'll post more information about what you can do there as the date approaches. 
Together, we can ensure that on January 22, the blogosphere is flooded with pro-choice blog posts and we keep choice in the spotlight.
See who has already signed up to participate.

Personal stories about killing one's unborn child?

Those will "change hearts and minds about the importance of always protecting a woman’s right to choose"?

Good grief.

The fact is protecting "choice" means protecting the slaughter of the unborn. "Choosing" abortion is "choosing" to kill.

I don't say that as an "extreme and outspoken anti-choice" person. I say it because it's REALITY.

Let's be honest about the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

This really is about celebrating the killing of human life. Tens of millions of unique human beings have been slaughtered under the guise of CHOICE.

To counter this perverse celebration, people who respect life and value the unborn are responding to "Blog for Choice Day" with "Ask Them What They Mean When They Say 'Choice' Blog Day."

Jill Stanek writes:
Every year NARAL uses the anniversary of the day abortion was legalized throughout the United States to promote "choice."

And for the last two years pro-lifers have not let them get away with obfuscating what that "choice" actually is.

We devote the day online to calling abortion proponents out - writing our own blog posts on the real meaning of "choice," commenting on their blog posts, and questioning all their Facebook and Twitter blather.

We will also make good use of their designated Twitter hashtag, #Tweet4Choice.
The use of the word "choice" by the pro-abortion movement is so insidious. It's cowardly.

If they're so proud to support the killing of the unborn, why are they afraid to be clear about what it is they're "choosing"? Why hide the reality of abortion by softening the language?

"Choice" means killing a unique, one and only, human life.

If one is pro-choice, one is pro-abortion. "Choice" equals death, the mother's "choice" to intentionally kill her unborn child.

That's what it means.

Let's not play word games.

Let's be honest.

NARAL is promoting "Blog for Killing the Unborn Day."

FACT: "Choice" means choosing death for one's child.

The anniversary of Roe v. Wade is the darkest of days. It stands as a reminder of over 55 MILLION birthdays never celebrated.
