32. I have no problem with someone who is against abortion

I have an IMMENSE problem with someone who is against choice. Just as I would never force a woman to have an abortion if she doesn't want one, I would never force her to bring an unwanted pregnancy to term if she didn't want that. It is not, no way nohow, the place of ANY third party to make that decision.

I come from a long line of strong women anyway, as well as having married one and helped raise two more. My grandmother was dismissed by New York City mayor Fiorello La Guardia as his liason to labor in the 1940s. It seems she was too cozy with labor for his liking. She also committed the cardinal sin of backing her husband, my grandfather, for Attorney General on NY (some nerve, right?). Six years later, she became a passionate East Coast fundraiser for the mayor of Minneapolis for the US Senate from Minnesota. His name was Hubert Humphrey.
