UPDATE 1/30, 7:12a: We blindsided and overwhelmed NARAL last year with our “Ask Them What They Mean by ‘Choice'” Day, but this year the group was more prepared. They signed up 1/3 more blogs to participate and tried to keep up with our counter-tweets.
But we forced them to think about what “choice” really stands for, whether they wanted to or not. And NARAL will never ever again be able to euphemistically celebrate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade online unanswered.
The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank noted NARAL’s “Blog for Choice Day” in his list of “carnivals” surrounding the terrible anniversary.
Thanks to all who blogged, tweeted, and Facebooked their groups to remind them what “pro-choice” actually means.
