An Open Letter to My Daughter About Abortion

By Maria Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director

Dear Beloved Daughter,

It seems hard to believe that you just celebrated another birthday. You have grown into an accomplished, inspiring young woman, and you give me incredible hope.

I would like to take this opportunity, though, to apologize for the fact that you grew up in a world in which the lives of preborn babies were not universally protected. At least 1/5 of your generation is not here today because of abortion. I am sorry about the friendships you've missed because of the people in your age cohort who lost their lives in their mothers' wombs.

I also believe that the lack of respect for human life that we see day in and day out on cable news is a result of Roe v. Wade. That tragic U.S. Supreme Court decision, made decades before you were born, attempted to dehumanize preborn children. And, because of that, we as a nation lost some of our own humanity.

I wish I had known earlier about the amazing, miraculous development of a child in the womb. I wish I had volunteered for the pro-life movement when I was invited to my first pro-life event when I was 13. I wish I had never thought that the so-called "pro-choice" movement offered liberty for women. In fact, that movement has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands girls each year and has caused tremendous emotional pain for their mothers.

But I am so glad that I overcame my missteps and embraced the pro-life cause before you were born. I am happy that you grew up holding soft-touch fetal models and knowing, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that every life is an unrepeatable master work of God.

I sincerely pray that any children you will have will not have to deal with the scourge of abortion and that, for them, Roe will be an asterisk in the history books. And I know that, as an unapologetic pro-lifer, you will instill in any sons or daughters the truth that all human life should be cherished and protected.

I believe that pop culture-watchers would classify you as being part of Generation Z. I hope that Z signals the end of abortion and the beginning of a new culture of life. Please hold onto your pro-life dreams and know that your work on behalf of life will never be in vain. The coming generations are counting on you!
