april. f*ckin’ diabolical.
My birth mom got pregnant with me after Roe. She was 15 and I doubt I was planned. She gave me up for adoption, and I’m pretty glad she did. But this isn’t the reason I’m pro-life. In 2000, my daughter was born with a slew of serious heart defects. She lived almost 3 years,

passing after her 3rd open heart surgery in June 2003. Every time I hear someone say that it’s better to abort a baby with birth defects, I think about my daughter and how profoundly she changed my life in less than 3 years. These excuses people make to numb themselves to the

reality of abortion are legion, but they aren’t convincing. Yes, sometimes life hurts us in deep, irreversible ways. We can’t control it. We also can’t avoid it. Had I known I’d have such a short time with my daughter and how her death would destroy so much of who I am and what

I thought I’d believed in, I still wouldn’t have had an abortion to “save myself from the trauma.” I knew her. I loved her. She loved ME. I’m a better person for having experienced that love. I see her smile in her sister’s. And I’ll see her again. That’s why I’m pro-life.

I don't want to judge, but knowingly giving birth to a child with a fatal defect is a problem. The whole point of going through screening tests, is to avoid terminal diseases and life of pain and misery. I'm pro-life, but I support aborting pregnancies with severe health issues.

What a powerful story. For me, life (not convenience) is more valuable than anything else. I don't believe most people who choose an abortion think of it that way, but most of the time, they are simply saying another person's life isn't worth the inconvenience to theirs. 💔

I like the stance that Camille Paglia takes on the issue. She’s pro-choice, but she’s also pro-truth, believing abortion advocates should dispense with the euphemism and obfuscation and just own what they believe.

I’ve had friends that have made that choice. I have never judged them, because I love them. And I don’t judge strangers because I don’t know their lives. My friends have told me how their decisions affected them and it breaks my heart.

The same thing happened to friends of mine. I remember, in college, just holding my best friend from kindergarten’s hand while she cried. I still hurt for her. She is a wonderful mother and beautiful person, and she still carries this with her. I don’t love her any less.
