I want to thank Cathy McMorris Rodgers for speaking at the Pro-Life Rally in Spokane Valley. Her speech was touching as well as inspirational. Everyone in the room was moved to a standing ovation, numerous times.
Cathy touched on the importance of valuing every life – pre-born and born, as sacred and something to be celebrated and nurtured fully to its God-given potential. She, like many of the other speakers, acknowledged the difficulties many face with raising children. As a mother and grandmother, I can fully relate. Several mentioned personal experiences with such difficulties. But they all affirmed the principle that these difficulties can be overcome and those children become blessings in their lives. While the solution in every case may be unique, it is not abortion. There are many options available to mothers. The notion that anyone needs an abortion, outside of dangerous health concerns, is false and hurts women more than anyone.
Cathy has a strong record on defending life and is endorsed by pro-life organizations, and therefore I am voting for her too!
