Ta-Hehisi Coats has a beautiful essay that moved me to tears about childbirth and why he is pro-choice.  He view reflects my own so well.

My embrace of a pro-choice stance is not built on analogizing Rick Santorum with Hitler. It is not built on what the pro-life movement is “like.” It’s built on set of disturbing and inelidable[sic] truths: My son is the joy of my life. But the work of ushering him into this world nearly killed his mother. The literalism of that last point can not be escaped.
