Happy Valentine's Day

It's nearly the day that half of the world is in love
When chocolate and flowers adorn every shelf of the store
When gifts are given and people feel wanted

It's nearly the day that half of the world is depressed
When being single feels like being alone 
When you wish that someone could like you or that you could get up the courage to tell someone that you like them 

It's nearly the day when I will be crying
When I will never spend more than a minute not thinking about you
When I will worry that you have found someone else

It's nearly the day when I'll hate you
When I'll come up with some reason that we should still be together
When I will yell at the wall and get no reply

It's nearly the day when I'll hate myself
When I will think that I am ugly and that's why I'm alone 
When I will think that maybe you were just playing me all along

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

A Pro Choice Opinion Piece

The right to choose has been something long debated for years. The right to allow women to make a choice about their own bodies. A choice that could change their life forever. The right to allow someone to decide something for themselves that affects their life more than anyone else’s. Abortion has been being discussed as something that is bad. The idea that women make their own choice about their own bodies is being thought to be wrong. Abortion being legalized at the federal level is extremely important. If we allow state's control of abortion laws they will continue to chip away at the right to choose and to a safe abortion that should be afforded to all. 
Women are needing to put themselves in danger because some states (almost all states before the Roe v. Wade case) are not providing the service of safe abortion.
