Every New Year’s, we think about how to improve ourselves, for personal reasons, for professional reasons, and to make the world a better place. This year, in addition to making our own personal New Year’s resolutions, the Abortion Gang has compiled a list of resolutions that we would like ourselves and others to undertake:
For the mainstream pro-choice organizations to embrace reproductive justice in theory and in practice.
For the Abortion Gang to push the confines of reproductive justice even further than in their first year.
For anti-choice proponents to admit when they’ve used false/biased/centuries-old data to try and prove their point.
For mainstream media to refer to those against abortion as “anti-choice” instead of “pro-life.”
For abortion to be seen by the world as a human rights issue, not a relegated to a “women’s” issue.
For state and federal governments to spend their time and resources on improving the lives of their citizens, instead of on deciding whether the contents of a woman’s uterus is “alive.”
For Congress to remove bills that force women to pay for abortion services out of pocket, instead of being covered as a standard medical procedure.
For more television networks to show abortion in a positive, realistic light.
For all pharmacies to be able to dispense the morning after pill to any one who needs it, regardless of age.
What would you like to see happen in 2011?
