Why do I stand for life? I stand for life in thanksgiving to Mike’s mother who chose life for him instead of abortion and then selflessly gave him a new life through adoption. I stand for life for my children, especially for Leo who I was told I should abort. They bring so many people joy and hope. I stand for life for my children that I carried and yet was not able to keep this side of heaven. I stand for the dignity of ALL life. Every life is sacred; every life matters. I stand for the poor, the broken, the disabled, the elderly, the sick, those who are suffering, the born and the unborn. I stand for YOU regardless of your race, your religion, your sexual preference, your gender, or any other qualifier you may embrace. I stand for life because God deemed each and every person to be worthy of standing for. I pray you will stand alongside of me to defend all human life.
