Apparently the passionate voices listened to by many legislators are these: (1) women must not be allowed to have abortions and (2) women must not be protected if working a job and pregnant. From this I deduce that these passionate voices have no concern whatsoever for the health and welfare of a fetus, developing baby or the birth mother. Either you protect life and make the best, and sometimes difficult, decisions for the welfare of the mother/ protector/provider or you protect some idea that has become sacred in your mind. Which is it? Choose life or worship an idea?
