Supporters of abortion have all been born

To the editor:

A week ago while driving through Illinois, I noticed a billboard holding the following quote from former President Ronald Reagan: ?I?ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.?

This quote came to mind as I read the May 16 Ledger article about the newly passed ?Heartbeat? legislation allowing children to live unharmed after heartbeat is detected, usually within the first six weeks of pregnancy. Then I realized, these women mentioned from various organizations against this have been born!

Their voices are heard and words they?ve said are printed in newspapers *only* because their mothers did not kill them. Their mothers allowed life for them to continue. They were protected and a cherished gift. For the life of me, I cannot see why these women refuse to see life as a gift, worthy to protect, just as their moms did.

I hope for all these little ones whose hearts are beating, that these women?s heartbeats will be forever changed - changed for life.
