As a child from a traditional Mexican-American home, I have always been pro-life. When I was younger I thought abortion was wrong simply because it kills a baby. Working as Director of Latinos4Life, an educational outreach based in California’s Central San Joaquin Valley for the past seven years has given new meaning to being pro-life. I have had the incredible privilege to serve firsthand in the stressful situations men and women find themselves in when facing an unplanned pregnancy and contemplating abortion.

I once overheard a girl talking to her friends about her pregnancy while passing by in the halls of my high school. She said things like "don’t know who the father is this time" and "another abortion" and "my mom doesn't know." Instead of using birth control or condoms to prevent pregnancy, she had apparently decided that taking care of things after the fact with back-alley abortions was good enough. I felt sick hearing her words. And I hated her for the casual manner in which she discussed the life of an unborn baby.
