When I was 17 years old, I chose to have an abortion. I have lived the last 20 years with the full knowledge that it was not just a "fetus" or a "clump of cells" that was lost, but that, on that tragic day, a beautiful, living person was murdered at the hands of an abortionist with my consent. I took part in the murder of my own child. This is happening by the thousands every year in Oklahoma, and by the hundred-thousands throughout America. We are living in a present-day holocaust. Legalized abortion has to stop. I had an abortion, and now I am an abolitionist. I care very much about other matters in Oklahoma, and I will work diligently for Oklahomans in my district, but nothing can be equated to legalized abortion in our state. This must be our first order of business! I will fight for unborn Oklahomans to be given their right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!
