    Katie-Reproductive justice happens when everyone gets to live. How sad, that in all the ways that you could have helped women, you chose to advocate the murder of them. What lies do you have to believe that absolutely discount modern biology (not to mention what you have to believe about your own femininty and self-worth)? You and your ilk are voices for death. What a legacy.

    I just found your blog today after the NY Times piece. Good Work! I truly hope you/we can transform this entire debate to make it a meaningful issue and not political propaganda, as it has been for the past 20+ years, drawing on emotion rather than reason. I truly support you and wish you good luck.

    Saw your story today in the NY Times. Bravo to you for sharing your story with such calmness and clarity. And, thank you.

  4. I’m glad that the Grey Lady is catching up to what the rest of us already know–Katie Stack is a superstar!

    Reading your article I was struck not so much about the “Aid to Women” center’s misleading practices, which frankly I would have expected, but that you, your friend and your sister all had unwanted pregnancies. In this day and age of sex education, easily obtained birth control, STD and AIDS –having unprotected sex is inexcusable. I was once 19 and got pregnant, had an illegal abortion. This was also in 1968, when all we had were condoms and fear of getting pregnant. We had no sex education, the pill was not commonly used and STD’s and threat of death from AIDS were not even discussed at any level. I am a strong and outspoken supporter of Pro Choice. No women should be ashamed of making choices about her life or have to sneak around in illegal or unsafe places (as I did) to act upon those choices. But being Pro-Choice means one; especially one who has been educated and knows better should be pro choice upfront about making wise and prudent decisions when it comes to their bodies. If you college girls all got pregnant, it tells me that we are doing a terrible job of impressing on our young women the need to more empowered to look out for yourselves.

It is unfortunate that the woman is always in charge – but it simply is that way….tell him to put on a condom or there is no nookie tonight!

    From October 2011, but poignant, nevertheless. These places are full of crap and need to be put out of business asap!

    I clipped and saved the piece from the NY Times and reread it today. I’m glad to see more people are catching on to the fact that these places are fraudulent and need to be put out of business as of yesterday.

    Great job!
