My Body, My Life, My Choice

I am a sexual being. Pregnancy, birth control, giving birth, abortion - all carry risks to my health. I should not be forced to take risks unless I have weighed that the benefit is worth the risk. It is My Body.

My family, values, friends, religion, spirituality, memories, opportunities, struggles. These are the kinds of things that make up my life. Don't put me in a box. My life is not black and white.

I will decide which road to take. Trust me. I will base my decision on the conditions of my life and include whomever I choose in the decision making process. My choice may or may not be difficult.
