I think strongly that teen pregnancy and young people having babies when they are not emotionally, financially, or otherwise equipped to take care of them, is kind of glorified in our media right now….

I donít think Buffy should have a baby. I donít think Buffy can take care of a baby. I agree with Buffy. Itís a very difficult decision for her, but she made a decision that so many people make and itís such a hot button issue with Planned Parenthood under constant threat and attack right now.

A womanís right to choose is under attack as much as itís ever been, and thatís a terrible and dangerous thing for this country….
