13. Other things.

Volunteer on hotlines.
Escort women through the lines to clinics.
Put women up who can't afford a hotel.
Sign petitions, call Congresscritters, write letters to the editor.

Now, some people don't do any of those things, but still say it's a high priority. Not everyone is an activist. So I guess the other thing is: is it a passion, would you argue with someone about it, would you refuse to be silent when someone is Pro-Life and says something fallacious?

So then, there are some who would not do even that, but in their gut, it's a high priority. So I fall back on how you vote. Do you go out of your way to verify that a candidate is pro-Choice. And that your candidate willing to speak out on it and argue on your behalf. That's high priority.
