I attended the Women’s Convention in Detroit. This conference was sponsored solely by progressive organizations, including premiere sponsor Planned Parenthood, my former employer. I chose to attend because wherever there are pro-choice voices, there ought to also be a pro-life voice.
While I am a pro-life woman, I am also a woman who is concerned about rights for the disabled, maternity leave, the death penalty, health care, domestic violence, breastfeeding rights, etc. While I am a single-issue voter, I certainly don’t live a single-issue existence. Many causes affect my family and me, and I intend to be a voice for those as well. However, nothing should take more precedence than innocent death, and that’s exactly what abortion is: the death of innocent life.
