“My body, my choice”

"My body, my choice” is a popular women’s rights slogan that has been printed on many images. The slogan has been used for such topics as abortion and vaccination. “Me, my body, my choice” was printed in the Akron (OH) Beacon Journal on January 21, 1978.

“My Body, My Choice” was printed on a sign outside the capitol building at Madison, Wisconsin, and mentioned in news stories printed in many newspapers on March 9, 1978. The Wisconsin governor vetoed the bill that would have put curbs on abortions.

“My child, my choice,” about parental rights on such issues as education and vaccination, is a similar slogan.


21 January 1978, Akron (OH) Beacon Journal, “Voice of the people: Fetuses: Human or Not?” (letter by Mary Thornburg, Akron), pg. A6, col. 4:
Her (Mary Kapper Barry—ed.) attitude of “me, my body, my choice” would make us become a nation of self-centered individuals, interested only in freedom with reservations.

9 March 1978, Milwaukee (WI) Sentinel, “Schreiber Vetoes Abortion Curbs Bill” by Neil H. Shively, pt. 1, pg. 7, col. 2:
Signs and songs made the message clear to those inside. “My Body, My Choice,” one sign said.

9 March 1978, The Daily Tribune (Wisconsin Rapids, WI), “Schreiber vetoes bill ending abortion funds” (AP), pg. 2, col. 7:
As assemblymen debated the bill, about 200 persons demonstrated on a sidewalk outside the Capitol, demanding that the measure be rejected.

The pickets chanted: “My body, my choice.”

5 February 1979, The Evening Sun (Baltimore, MD), “Smoking: Health campaign for girls plays on wish to be alluring” by Sue Miller, pg. B3, col. 2:
The Lung Association’s materials have sections that talk about “my body, my choice.”

7 September 1979, Akron (OH) Beacon Journal, “Voice of the people: Get the facts” (letter by Christina Rector, Akron), pg. A6, col. 3:
Beacon Journal and readers, do you really know all the aspects of the abortion issue? Are you aware of the philosophy that has sponsored this most disgusting of evils—the destruction of an unborn child’s life? Or are you content with the premise of my body, my choice?

But how can you say that it’s “My body my choice” when someone aborts? Isn’t it the baby’s body that is being killed? How is it the woman’s choice? She chose to have sex, which led to a pregnancy, now she needs to take responsibility and let the baby live.

I struggle to understand why the #MeToo supporters who scream “my body, my choice” when it comes to killing a fetus aren’t fully supporting of prostitution? It’s their body, why can’t they sell it?
