File it Under S for "Sticky Subject"

I hesitate to even begin this post, knowing that I could be inviting unsolicited wrath of all types and kinds, but I have to do it. I'm just so relieved that this has happened.

For the record, I am pro choice. I don't have children. I have never been forced to consider abortion for myself. I do not judge those who are opposed to abortion. I think children are a blessing. Most importantly, I think a woman has every right to choose what is best for herself, her family, her body, and her health.

The embattled Aurora Planned Parenthood clinic has been too long bogged down in a complicated web of permits, protests, and fighting. I am simply happy that the women of the western Chicagoland region still have an option.
