Interview with 40 Days of Choice campaign organizer in Grand Rapids

October 4, 2012

Yesterday, we sat down with Kate from the Heritage Clinic for Women to talk about their 40 Days of Choice Campaign.

The 40 Days of Choice Campaign began several years ago in response to the anti-abortion campaign known as 40 Days for Life. People can make monetary and other pledges online to provide needed support for women as they make difficult decisions. You can support the work of the Heritage Clinic for Women and join the 40 Days of Choice Campaign by going to their Facebook page.

During the interview with Kate, we also talked about the current political climate and the legislative attacks against reproductive rights, the larger socio-economic factors surrounding women’s reproductive rights and the changes she has seen in recent years because of the economic crisis.

    We have no room to judge or frown upon those who may not have the support to be the successful parent. People say you can do it but a child needs two parents most of the time. I respect women and myself that did what I felt was right because of my situation. Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom again to say enough is enough because very few men will stay by our side when we are physically on deaths door. It is the worst feeling when you do not have a place to call home and very few people expect nothing in return. The rest of you people can fuck off until you walk in our shoes and gives us 24-hr day care when the dad’s run off and it is not our child’s fault because the dad wants to be a bastard.
