A few weeks ago my colleague Hannah Wolfe wrote an opinion article titled “I’m not all about that bass,” in which she criticized Meghan Trainor’s chart-topping song “All about that Bass.” Wolfe approached the song from a feminist point of view. Within minutes of her article being posted online it started getting attention. Many of the comments attacked Wolfe as a writer, a few even assuming she must be skinny, because only a skinny person would write something of that nature.
Abortion has always been a controversial topic, no matter where a person goes, especially after laws have been suggested to make abortion illegal, all together. The only problem is that it is easy for these congressmen and men, in general, to say women should carry a child to term and either put it up for adoption or raise the child.
Is life a choice or someone else’s decision? Most everyday individuals would agree that life is a decision that each individual makes, a personal choice. When looking at the facts, this simple statement could not be more accurate. It is, without a doubt, an individual’s personal choice to make the decision about choosing life. Does this mean that “pro-choice” is the proper mind-set? Not at all.
We constantly have the back and forth debate over pro-choice or pro-life. You hear the arguments from one side and then you hear the arguments from another. Both standpoints have its strengths and weaknesses. However, I am pro-control. I am for women having control of their bodies and their personal lives. I am pro-birth control.
