As we gear up for election season, we should acknowledge that the War on Women is far from over.

In the last two years, states have passed more laws restricting abortion than during any other period in history. Women having control over their own bodies and delaying motherhood just freaks everyone the fuck out.

1 in 4 women will have an abortion (I think it's 1 in 2 because of the social stigma) and the majority of us will go on to become mothers. I had three abortions and I'm six months pregnant as I pen this piece. The technology exists to terminate early with little or no risk to your life or future fertility. In fact, you have a greater chance of dying during a pregnancy than a termination.

We can take a pill and insure our economic well-being and independence. We can wait until we have the ability to be a great mom - how can that not be a good thing for society?
