Pro Choice – Lady in Red

Today’s post for me is one of those issues that is neither black or white. There is a constant debate between the Pro Life and Pro Choice movement.

Personally, I believe every woman should have the legal right to an elective abortion. As a woman, I believe I  have the fundamental right to do what I want with my body. Despite my beliefs, I am extremely proud of those who support the Pro Life movement. Everyone after all is entitled to their own opinion.

It often doesn’t matter if there is a difference of opinion, what matters is you respect the person enough to understand their decision is theirs.

Please enjoy today’s post in Lady in Red’s own words…

In the crooked corner

Of the dirty old block

Metals clanking in alcohol

I lay down, reminding myself

I am Pro Choice

The old woman, a scorner

Hair white as chalk

Jagged teeth like an animal

Her smile quite like an elf

But, I still am Pro Choice

The dingy field

On a full moons night

The farmer’s son and I

Ignited in foolish passion

‘Love’ we called it

Knees peeled

With every kiss and every bite

Our clothes muddle in barley and rye

We gazed in compassion

With every heart beat


It happened

Unprepared I was

A tiny soul

Had begin to form


Unclear future seemed to sadden

I choose not to be lost cause

Dreams not down the hole

This, a temporary storm

So here I was

In the crooked corner

Of the dirty old block

I lay down with a smile

Reminding myself, I am Pro Choice

Who am I? you ask

I am the Lady

Who is in control of her body

My body, my decision

I am the Lady in Red

So, Pro Life or Pro Choice? I would like to hear what movement you support and your reasons. Let’s have a discussion in the comments section.

    Team #ProLife for this. But then, never been in a “lady in red” situation. At least not with respect to this. I do believe everyone has a right to make their own choices so I’m also partly ProChoice.


    1. Haha team #ProLife and #ProChoice

    Heya! I undestand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does operating a well-established website such aas yours take a lot of work?

    I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in myy diary
    daily. I’d likke to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal
    experience and views online. Please let me know
    if you have any kind of suggestions or tips ffor brand
    new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!


    1. Hi Benjamin,

      I wouldn’t say it takes a lot of work. WordPress comes with a lot of free (and premium) themes which you can customise to suit you.

      If you have any questions regarding starting up your own, please use the ‘contact me’ section of my blog to drop a message.
