    Dear Supreme Court

    Today, you struck down 50 years of a woman’s right to choose. While it doesn’t come as a shock and I expected it would happen, it doesn’t dissuade my dismay.

    For context, allow me to beam you back to December of 1983. At a doctor’s appointment my Mother was told to abort me as the risk to her life would be great should she choose to continue her…read more
