I gave birth three months ago. I’m 16. My parents kicked me out, I live with my grandparents now, I dropped out of school. I lost all my friends. It was prolifers like you who forced me to keep it. Thanks for ruining my life.

I was the product of an unwanted teenage pregnancy, carried and birthed by my 17 year old mother. You have lived approximately 1/6 of your life. I can assure you that there is life beyond 16. The beauty of having respected your child’s right to life is that you get to live guilt free and he or she gets to simply live. Only the choice of parenting or adoption could have provided this outcome. You should be very proud of yourself.

You not only gave life to your own child, you gave life to millions of his or her descendants and have changed the course of human history for all time. Once a new human being is conceived, they have every right to complete their life journey. It is the responsibility of those of us already here to ensure that right is protected, from gestation through natural death. And you are doing that. And for that, I thank you.

A plea to win the hearts of those who choose to dehumanize our development and undermine our right to live.
