As a teenager, I was involved with my church’s pro-life group, going to the capital every year, and spreading pamphlets about the safe place for newborns bill that a few of the wonderful ladies in my church were trying to pass. I was pro-life because God is pro-life, and because I knew that killing is wrong.

Since then I have had the blessing to have a living being growing inside of me. I have felt of their spirit, witnessed their personality, and knew without a doubt that they are alive, that they have their own identity.

Now I am pro-life because you cannot take away my personal witness, and because it is baffling to me that a mother, the one who is supposed to protect their child, would fight for her right to kill her baby without cause.
