Announcing Blog For Choice Day 2012!
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
January 22, 2012--the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which recognized a woman's right to choose safe, legal abortion--will be the seventh (yes, seventh!) annual Blog For Choice Day.
Thanks to all the pro-choice bloggers who've joined us over the years, 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.
Without a doubt, 2011 was an intense year for the pro-choice community. Anti-choice politicians ignored the American people's call to focus on jobs and the economy. Instead, they spent the year waging a War on Women. The U.S. House of Representatives held more choice-related votes than in any year since 2000, and states have thus far enacted a near-record number of anti-choice measures.
That's why our Blog for Choice Day 2012 question is: What will you do to help elect pro-choice candidates in 2012?
What you write up is up to you. Whether you're running for office yourself, canvassing for a pro-choice congressional or state legislative candidate, registering people to vote, or simply chatting with your friends and family about why voting pro-choice matters, we want to hear your plans for pro-choice victories at the polls. Just be sure to sign up now so we can get in touch with you and add your blog to our list.
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.

So, please join us for Blog for Choice Day 2012 on Sunday, January 22, the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade! Let's make this another successful year!
