Announcing Blog For Choice Day 2013!
While you're enjoying the holidays, don't forget about our upcoming event...
January 22, 2013 will be the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, which recognized a woman's right to choose safe, legal abortion. We are honoring this day with our eighth (can you believe it?) 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.
2012 was certainly a big year for the pro-choice community. From the Susan G. Komen controversy, to securing no-cost birth-control, to comments about "legitimate rape," women's access to abortion and birth control were front and center.
When anti-choice politicians threatened to put themselves between a woman and her doctor, pro-choice individuals came forward with their personal stories and experiences to make sure that women never lose the right to freedom and privacy when it comes to personal health-care decisions.
That's why for Blog for Choice Day 2013, we're asking you to: Tell your story about why you're pro-choice.
What you write up is up to you. Whether you've considered yourself to be pro-choice for as long as you can remember, or you've just become involved recently, we want to hear your story about why you're pro-choice.
We must keep the conversation going about choice, but we can't build momentum without you. Sign up now so we can get in touch with you and add your blog to our list. The more bloggers who participate, the more people we'll reach.
If you don't maintain a blog or personal website, you can still participate through Facebook or Twitter. On January 22, post the Blog for Choice Day graphic on your Facebook wall and update your status about why you're pro-choice. Or tweet and include the tag #Tweet4Choice.
So, please join us for Blog for Choice Day 2013 on Tuesday, January 22, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade! Let's get thousands of people reading and thinking about why they're pro-choice.
