Imagine how many people are here today thanks to abortion.
Imagine all the small children you have in your life not being here, because their mother didn’t have an abortion with a child before.
I know several children that were born after their mother had an abortion, a year, 4 years, or 10 years before. If not for that, they wouldn’t be here. That’s heartbreaking.
So if you get upset because your parent had an abortion before having you, remember that that abortion is the reason you were able to be born. Look at the children around you, chances are that at least one of them wouldn’t have been there today if not for abortion.
Who are you to say these children shouldn’t have been born? If we twist it that way?
Abortion makes life possible. Imagine that.
My Pro-Choice Politician: Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago)
This is the first in what we hope to be a continuing series where you all nominate state- or local-level elected officials who are standing up for reproductive rights in their communities and states, and we all, as a community, thank them for what they do.
We need to keep reminding these hard-working, often unacknowledged state-level politicians that we see the work they are doing and we are incredibly grateful for it.
This idea was inspired by our post a while back for Kentucky State Rep Darryl Owens.
Today’s Pro-choice Politician is Kelly Cassidy, a rep out of Illinois.
Ms. Cassidy was nominated by Elizabeth Dietz Butterfield on our Facebook page.
Cassidy became nationally famous in early March when she proposed a “Viagra Amendment” to a forced ultrasound bill in Illinois.
Illinois Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago) is pushing for equality by proposing an amendment to new state anti-choice laws — which require women to undergo an ultrasound before obtaining an abortion — which, in turn, requires men to view a video about the possible effects of taking Viagra before obtaining a prescription.
Let’s thank Rep. Kelly Cassidy for her work in protecting reproductive rights:
