  • 1. 
    You’ve just loaded up a forkful of stuffing and cranberry sauce when Aunt Gwen gossips about she saw your old high-schoolmate picking up the abortion pill Plan B. Do you:  
    • A. 

      Shove the food into your mouth and hope no one asks you what you think.

    • B. 

      Tell Aunt Gwen that actually, Plan B helps with preventing a pregnancy, not ending one, and is often made from the same hormones as birth control pills.

    • C. 

      Interrupt and say “What’s the big deal? I’m so sick of this backwards family being terrified of abortion.”


  • 2. 
    Now the conversation has turned to the economy, and Aunt Liz tells you that she’s sick of her tax dollars going to support irresponsible poor women’s abortions. Do you:
    • A. 

      Tell Aunt Liz, “And I’m sick of my tax dollars going to support the war, but I still have to pay them. “

    • B. 

      Tell Aunt Liz, “Actually, did you know that thanks to the Hyde Amendment, no federal tax dollars go towards abortion? So I doubt that our economic crisis has anything to do with abortion. But I’m definitely with you: we need to do something about the economy!”

    • C. 

      Say “uh huh,” and change the subject to Football.


  • 3. 
    Uh oh, now your teenage cousin Charlie just asked you “but doesn’t abortion kill little babies?” What do you respond with?
    • A. 

      “Well Charlie, the decision about whether or not you’re ready to become a parent is a very important one, and that’s why I think that everyone should have the chance to become a parent only when they’re ready.”

    • B. 

      “No, Charlie, a mass of blood and cells is definitely not a baby.”

    • C. 

      “Kids, they’ll say the wildest things these days!”


  • 4. 
    Turns out Aunt Liz’s Thanksgiving guest is from Mississippi, and tells you he’s disappointed that the personhood amendment failed. Do you:
    • A. 

      Say “I’m so sick of these right wingers trying to legislate my uterus.”

    • B. 

      Say “yes, I heard about that vote. How long are you in town for?”

    • C. 

      Tell him you thought the measure was too extreme – and would have banned many forms of birth control and in vitro fertilization.


  • 5. 
    Aunt Sue is not happy that her daughter is starting sex education classes this year. She wishes that they stuck to abstinence-only classes. Do you:
    • A. 

      Tell her “Actually, I think sex ed helps keep kids safe! Did you know that kids who receive comprehensive sex education are more likely to delay first sexual contact, and make healthier and safer decisions if and when they do become sexually active? But if you’re worried about it you should talk to your daughter – it would probably mean a lot to her to know where you stand on the issues.”

    • B. 

      Say, “gee that was delicious. Now how about some pumpkin pie!”

    • C. 

      Say “Half these kids know more about sex than I do. I seriously doubt that these classes will teach them any new information.”

    You’ve just loaded up a forkful of stuffing and cranberry sauce when Aunt Gwen gossips, “I saw your high-school pal Jenny buying Plan B in the drugstore today. I think she’s pregnant and wants to end it!” Do you: 
    • A. 

      Shove the food into your mouth and hope no one asks you what you think.

    • B. 

      Tell Aunt Gwen that, actually, Plan B is “emergency contraception,” not an abortion pill. It prevents a pregnancy rather than ending one, and is made from the same hormones as birth control pills.

    • C. 

      Interrupt and say “What’s the big deal? I’m so sick of this backwards family being terrified of abortion.”
