First, they arrested the prostitutes and took them "off the streets".  We did nothing, because we were not prostitutes.

Next, they took away federal funds to pay for poor women's abortion.  We did nothing, because we were able to pay for our abortions.  

Next, they bombed the abortion providers.  We did nothing, because we didn't like them anyway, and talking about the whole issue made us uncomfortable.

Next, they outlawed birth control.  We could do nothing, because --
We had not defended each woman's right to control her own body, including charging for sex if she wants to.

We had not stuck up for those of us who couldn't afford an abortion.

We didn't honor and protect the abortion provider's who make "choice" a reality
