Quote of the Day: “This is not a choice between vanilla and chocolate …”

Quote of the day:

This is not a choice between vanilla and chocolate. This is a choice like, “Do you want me to break your arm, or your leg?” This is a choice that says, “Do you want to see your life derailed, see your dreams turn to ashes – or do you want to undergo a humiliating, invasive operation and have your own child die?” “Do you want to sacrifice your life plans, or would you rather sacrifice your offspring?”  It’s a lousy choice. Women should not be forced into making such a choice. We should be able to keep both mother’s and child’s lives and bodies intact.
