In the beginning our Founding fathers thought that everyone has the right to life, every human being has unalienable rights. Ending one's life is not protecting those rights. There are a few reasons why women get abortions one of them is being a victim of rape ; essentially an unplanned pregnancy, the women doesn't have enough money to pay for the child, having a baby would ruin their education, fetal health problems, physical health problems, or they just don't want the baby. My name is Grace Cronin and I am here to tell you my story about why I strongly believe in pro life. My biological mother was 14 years old when she had her first child. She didn't have any family support or any money to care for this child on the way, if that wasn't bad enough she was also a victim of rape. At that time she had to drop out of High school because it became too much for her to handle. She had to go through a lot of counseling to ensure that she can help out the baby in anyway she can. Fast forward 9 months and the baby was born. My mother was filed with joy but was also scared on how to take care of this baby. My sister was born intellectually disabled and my mother didn't even have a clue. The pregnancy was a bumpy road for her because she drank , smoked , and did drugs. Not only was my sister Intellectually Disabled but she also had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. My mother was 14 at the time of this and she could've gone the "easy way out " but she knew in her heart that the child needs a chance. Fast forward two years and I was born, I was a healthy baby but my mother was 16 when she had me. She wasn't able to get back on her feet because of the first baby. Child services came and me and my sister went to a foster home. It was really hard on my mother but she knew it what was best. That's when me and my sister meet Thomas and Aline (my adoptive parents ). They decided to foster care us and in five years they adopted us on 6-13-05. If it wasn't for my brave mother for not choosing abortion, me and my sister wouldn't be here today and I wouldn't be writing this petition on pro life. Yes , me and my sister were an inconvenience and yes she was young but with help and counseling she was able to give us a chance. Getting an abortion is a choice, but that choice has consequences. The long term effect of feeling guilty because of what you know in your heart isn't the right choice. Instead society has not been shining the light on adoption, put your baby up for adoption give them the chance they deserve. I can tell you right now that I am so thankful that my biological mother didn't go the abortion route  because me and my sister wouldn't be here today. people may say that my sister because of her disabilities is a burden, but in fact she is the light of my life. Thanks for taking the time to read my story and I hope it gave you a different perspective on why pro life is the most important decision and how adoption is the solution.
