Happy 36th, Roe vs. Wade!

Today we celebrate 36 years of reproductive choice in America (and an end to 8 years trying to abolish it). It is also the annual Blog For Choice Day, and the topic this year is: What is your top pro-choice hope for President Obama and/or the new Congress?

Well, um... all of them! From rescinding the global gag rule to the Freedom of Choice Act, to (fingers crossed) banning the "partial birth" abortion ban. In fact, I'd like a reversal of nearly everything Bush ever did over the past 8 years, regarding choice and otherwise. None of it's been any good. I don't think I can choose just one thing.

Supposedly, Obama is going to rescind the global gag rule today, and if so, I will be pleased as punch.
