In honor of Dr. George Tiller, who often wore a button that read, "Trust Women," this year's question is:
What does Trust Women mean to you?
I'm a little late in the day with my post, and I've already read some great responses to this question, so what I have to say is brief.
"Trust Women" means understanding a woman's right to make decisions about her body. It means trusting that we can, and must, make our own decisions regarding our reproductive choices.
Trust a woman to know when she's ready to have a child. Trust a woman to decide if she's not ready for a child.
All women, regardless of class, income, religion, or color, should be able to make decisions about their own bodies. That's why I support Planned Parenthood (and Judy Blume).
It's simple: Women's rights are human rights. Trust women to decide for themselves. We are capable.
