I've read several of the democrats candidates reviews. None
of them are pro life.... I don't agree with pro choice the women that got pregnant with an innocent baby had a choice before they got pregnant isn't that what Planned Parenthood is?? my opinion, this is murder. there are lots of couples out there praying for a child, why can't these innocent babies be put up for adoption? prochoice? the mothers had the choice before getting pregnant, shame on them!
