The 24 June 2022 announcement outside the Supreme Court regarding the overturning of Roe v. Wade represented a pivotal moment in the ongoing debate surrounding abortion in the United States. I recall the morning of the 24th of June, when I was glued to my phone, anxiously awaiting the outcome of the Supreme Court’s decision. I kept refreshing my screen in an attempt to ascertain the outcome, which was ultimately overturned. I recall feeling a great deal of impatience to hear the news, as that was the year when I publicly declared my pro-life stance and began my campaign to end abortion.

A study published in 2022 by Live Action provides insight into the relationship between abortion and sex trafficking. A significant proportion of victims of sex trafficking (approximately 30%) were found to have undergone abortions in facilities within the United States. It is estimated that approximately 27.6 million individuals are currently subjected to sex trafficking worldwide, with over 8.2 million of these individuals undergoing forced abortion. The study also included accounts of traumatic experiences, such as a woman who underwent 17 abortions at the hands of her trafficker. I am pro-life for the millions of women who are unable to advocate for themselves.

The legalisation of Roe v. Wade has resulted in the termination of more than 63.4 million pregnancies over the years. If the aforementioned lives had been saved, the United States of America would now have a population of approximately 396 million, representing a 19% increase. It is a topic that is rarely discussed, yet it is possible for an abortion to result in the survival of the child, despite the fact that the child will typically have a severe birth defect as a consequence of the abortion. Abortion survivor Jennifer Milbourn asserts that her mother was not a monster but a victim of the false belief that abortion is healthcare. I am pro-life for every victim of abortion.

Annually, approximately five million children are adopted in the United States. In 2009, I was one of the five million. When I was born to my birth mother in 2007, the Department of Human Services (DHS) determined that she was unfit to be a mother due to her current circumstances. Subsequently, I was placed in the Arkansas foster care system. However, in April 2009, I was adopted into my permanent family. At times, I felt as though my birth mother had “abandoned” me. Nevertheless, I came to understand that her actions were in my best interest. She selected me as the child in question. She demonstrated her love for me and was aware that, despite her circumstances, my life was still of value. She provided me with the most valuable gift she could have given, namely my life. I am in favour of the pro-life position with regard to my mother, as are all other mothers who have chosen to bring their babies into the world.

In the year 2023, I initiated the formation of a Pro-Life Group at my secondary educational establishment. I initiated this endeavour in response to the observation that a significant proportion of individuals of my age espoused the view that they were pro-choice. After engaging in discourse with them, it became evident that they lacked a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of abortion. The information they possessed was often incomplete and not always accurate. I am frequently queried as to the rationale behind my pro-life stance. While there are many reasons, the primary motivation is to advocate for my generation and future generations, with the aim of preventing a repetition of the historical events that have led to the current situation.
