Pro-Life vs Pro-Birth:
I have the unique experience of having worked for three years with women in crisis pregnancies. And while I do believe some areas are black and white, there are many gray areas in this debate. Some, like my opponent, actually wish for policy that would stop most InVitro fertilization and some birth control pills. But one thing is clear. When someone says they are “pro-life” but they see no need to help women with child care, with job training, with health care, with decent housing , or with Pre-K education, they are not “pro-life”. They are simply Pro-Birth. Like many, my opponent confuses these two perspectives. If we want to see a decrease in abortion, let’s address the real issues and not pretend to vote “pro-life” while also voting to contribute to the reasons a woman may seriously consider terminating her pregnancy.
