Message From Merle
As Thanksgiving approaches, and especially in the midst of an intense and upsetting political atmosphere, it’s important to take a long view of just what we have to give thanks for in our personal, professional and political lives. I am profoundly grateful for the support that Choices’ extended family and community have given to me personally, and especially for your enthusiasm for the new paths of health care services Choices has embarked on.
Choices’ commitment to women’s reproductive health remains at the core of our services and will continue despite whatever challenges are thrown at us, nationally or locally. When I started Choices in 1971, two years before Roe, my first patient was from New Jersey because abortion was illegal in that state. I held her hand during her abortion, and that intimate personal connection bound me to the issue of Reproductive Justice and the struggles to achieve it that I have devoted my life to. The movement for women’s civil and human rights demands that women are the agents who alone possess the profound moral obligation and legal right to decide when and whether or not to be mothers.
Throughout the 45 years that I have led Choices, I have fought many battles—faced many diverse opponents—so I am not afraid depressed or withdrawn as a reaction to this Presidential Election. I am energized, challenged and ready for war.
I say—Do not mourn, Organize!!
And not only do we face a major oppositional force but we have to keep moving forward. We cannot stand still—and in that context, the next year will see Choices initiating exciting new programs, including Family Health, Telemedicine, and expanded counseling services. Our innovative TransCare program will be launched early in the New Year as Choices once again stands in the forefront of serving patient and community needs.
I am so privileged and proud to have been on the front lines of women’s health, braving attacks from many directions, for over 45 years. With your support and commitment, Choices will continue to chart new paths and play a leading role in healthcare services for many years to come. Thank you.
