It moves one’s heart to think: Nine months before I was born there was a woman who loved me deeply. She did not know what I was going to be like, but she loved me because she carried me in her womb. And when she gave me birth, she took me in her arms, because her love was not just beginning – she conceived it along with me. A mother loves – and that is why abortion is so abhorrent.

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


  1. Oscar Romaro is so right.


  2. Oscar is a man. One who cannot get pregnant when raped nor can he ever face the terrible prospect of birthing a sibling because of incest. He is a man whom like many, has the privilege to walk away from many things, including children. Let’s not judge.
