Is This Really Pro-Choice?
Here’s something to think about. Many people stress pro-choice when it comes down to whether a woman should bring a new life into this world or not. Yet once it’s born, the same people will have you think that, as a parent, you shouldn’t feel as if you have the right to call your male baby a boy and dress it in blue. They believe that it binds the baby (who doesn’t even have the mental capability to adequately determine its own identity) in an oppressive gender norm. So you have choice in giving a baby life or not, but not in giving it an identity (at least for the time being). Is this stance really pro-choice?
