“I march because I was born on the day and the year, exactly, of the first day that abortion was made legal. I am a Roe v. Wade baby. I march because my mother marched for bussing for my school when I was young. I march because my grandmother was abused by her alcoholic husband. I march because I was molested as a child. I march because I have a beautiful 11 year-old-boy who my husband and I are raising to be a good feminist, and a contributor, and a kind and caring person. I march because I am a person and it is my duty.”
