I’ve historically kept writing about politics to my social media accounts, and for awhile, to a short-lived email newsletter that I tried to start up. Putting something on my website or blog feels different somehow. But, here we are, in unprecedented times. And to be honest, the idea of keeping this space politics-free seems nearly impossible, when so much that’s considered political right now is also extremely personal to many people, myself included. I’m also trying to move away from the fences of Facebook in particular, while having been asked to share my thoughts or opinions on the upcoming election (and not just in relation to the top of the ticket).
So I’m going to start with a particularly personal story, to share why I’m voting NO on Colorado Ballot Initiative 115, the latest attempt to put restrictions on abortion in Colorado.
