PSA: Vagina =/= Feminist. Vagina =/= my vote. Feminist == my vote.

Friends, let's have a sit down. We've been friends for a while, some of you are even family to me. So why in the name of all that is rational would you ask me if I support Palin?

Let's Look at a Brief Profile of Palin's Stances:
She's Anti-Choice.
She's Anti-Gay Marriage.
She's Anti-Comprehensive Sex Education.
She's Anti-Environment.
She's Pro-Creationism.

Let's Look at a Brief Profile of Smith's Stances:
I'm Pro-Choice.
I'm Pro-Gay Marriage.
I'm Pro-Comprehensive Sex Education.
I'm Pro-Environment.
I'm Pro-Evolution.

And EVEN if I didn't hold such different views from her.. how could I possibly support a Vice Presidential Candidate who isn't informed on the current status of our foreign policy, the supposed "war on terror," and the current status of the United States' position in Iraq?

Let her stay Alaska's governor, though hopefully the people of Alaska will rethink that, as she paves the way for the destruction of a large part of the United States' last remaining wilderness.

Wash, DC. March 7-March 12th, 2008, crash space or coffee?

I'm going to be in Washington, DC for the National Young Women's Leadership Conference and the National Council of Women's Organizations' Women's Equality Day & Congressional Action Day.

I'm driving to Atlanta on March 7th, flying out that night, then heading to Boston on March 12th.

Does anybody live in Washington or know someone who has crash space there? Or hell, anybody that wants to get coffee while I'm there? Lemme know, if you please.

Ooh, or if you want to go with me, definitely let me know, we could split a hotel room or something..

Blog for Choice 2008--Blog TodayI vote pro-choice because I don't believe the government should have any say with decisions I make affecting my body.

I vote pro-choice because of the legacy of women who fought for these rights and died without them.

I vote pro-choice because I don't want women to die.

I vote pro-choice because abortions will always be available to the rich and privilege but anti-choice legislation prevents poor and rural women from having access to safe and affordable abortions.

I vote pro-choice because I trust and believe in women to make the best choices for themselves and their families. And don't see how a few hundred primarily male legislators in Washington would be so much better at making those decisions.

I vote pro-choice because controlling women's reproductive systems is a worldwide form of oppression.

I vote pro-choice because unless a woman has complete say over her own body, she can never be a full and equal citizen of any nation.
