Two women’s healthcare providers in Arizona have been forced to file a federal lawsuit because of new regulations that would severely limit a woman’s access to RU-486, the most popular abortion-inducing drug in the state. Arizona refuses to accept that existing laws support a woman’s right to choice – and is taking unconstitutional measures to change that. More
I love this so much, because I find it very hard to believe in Alabama a lot of people who were present weren’t inwardly nodding at the inflammatory comment. More
If someone told me their 14-year-old was pregnant, I would tell them to drive her straight to the clinic. You know, the one that gives abortions. More
I’m not Jennifer Whalen, but as a mom I can assume the 38-year-old mother from Washington, Pennsylvania didn’t make the decision to order the abortion medications misoprostol and mifepristone online for her 16-year-old daughter lightly. Having your daughter face an unwanted pregnancy can’t be an easy thing for any mom to go through, and I’m sure Whalen, who is an unregistered nurse, spent a lot of time contemplating this whole thing before she spent 45 dollars on buying the drugs in January of 2012.

So basically they will be teaching pro-life trolls how to do better when they stalk pro-choice people online and tell them they are going to burn in hell on Twitter. I’m sure to some people seeing the Duggar family in person is a total dream come true, but here are 9 things Pro-Life Con needs to really make it a rabble rousing success. More
Yesterday, #PrayToEndAbortion was trending on Twitter. If you ever wondered how much stupid you could fit into 140 characters, it was a great day to find out! More
An initiative requiring women to buy additional insurance for abortion coverage passed the Michigan Legislature yesterday, and will take effect 90 days after they adjourn for the year. The news for women is just getting better and by better. And by better, I mean mind-numbingly worse. More
There are literally one hundred bazillion controversial topics in this world. More
It’s no secret there are many in this country who wish to deny women who have unwanted pregnancies the medical procedure they are guaranteed by law access to. But now, religious “rights” may allow some hospitals to deny women access to pregnancy-ending medical procedures in wanted pregnancies, too. More

Comparing abortion to genocide is patently ridiculous, as well as offensive to those who are actual victims of genocide from racial, ethnic or cultural persecution. More
Every time I read one of these personal anecdotes – there’s a part of me that wonders why we have to share these deeply personal stories. Not because I’m against choice – because I’m not. Quite the opposite, actually. I’m feverishly pro-choice. I just hate what inevitably happens with these personal declarations of women. I feel that ultimately, they are dissected for motivation. Who are we explaining ourselves to and why?
The decision to have a baby or not is never an easy one, no matter your circumstances. Anonymous Mom gave us a heart-wrenching story yesterday about getting pregnant with a second child by her boyfriend and struggling to convince him and his family that she didn’t want to have an abortion. Most readers were supportive of her position, many reacting as you would expect from a Mommyish reader: it’s your choice. But I couldn’t help think, in the context of the story, isn’t it his choice too? More
For whatever reason a woman might choose to put an end to the life of her unborn fetus, I firmly believe that it’s no one’s business what her choice may be. Only the person involved knows whether or not this choice is right for them. I also believe that having an abortion should be an exception, and that the consequences of having the child should outweigh the consequences of having an abortion.
Yet, never did I imagine that the day would come where I would have to fight my boyfriend and his family for the right to keep my unborn child. More
Mommyish is a parenting website. We support all parents, and we also support people who don’t want to become parents. I have children who I love beyond words and I am pro-choice. I don’t think these two things are mutually exclusive. More
