To the editor:
This Sunday, I will stand, not minding any ridicule I might receive, because I must thank Kathleen for saving my life. Forty-seven years ago, she was faced with a choice. Should she listen to her fears and end her accidental pregnancy, or should she give her baby the gift of life? I thank God she chose life. My birth mother gave me so much: a loving adoptive family, a wonderful life, the chance to be married to an awesome man, the tremendous privilege of being a mother of seven and the gift of getting to experience being a grandmother this December. Thank you Kathleen! This is why my whole family and I are standing along Iowa Street in the national event, "Life Chain," this Sunday, holding signs that say, "Abortion hurts women," "Adoption a Loving Option" and "Abortion kills children." I will never stop being thankful because I am the recipient of life through her choice.
