I spend more time on Facebook than I do here, but because of the great diversity in political beliefs among my friends I refuse to talk about politics there. So I'm going to say it here instead because I have to get it out.

I'm not sure I've ever felt as personally connected to a candidate's stance as I am this year. I cannot support someone who supports personhood amendments. I have spent too much money and time and emotion and pain these past several years trying to have a baby to feel comfortable with a president who can wave his hand at me and say "eh, you can't have one." Especially when he can wave his hand at a rape victim and say "now you, you HAVE to have one."

Life is full of varying shades of gray. And for those who think that I stand with a pro-choice candidate because I don't care about the precious life of a child, think again - I stand with a pro-choice candidate because I care so much about the precious life of a child that I WANT to spend thousands of dollars and five years (and counting) and emotion and pain to MAKE a precious life.
