Obama on Abortion
I have always been against abortion. In high school, I did my persuasive speech with the posters of aborted babies in garbage cans-"Ban Abortion!". In college, I wrote another essay to be sent to our local newspaper. My English teacher gave me a "D" and I was unable to take the final. It took a visit to the Dean of TJC in Tulsa to be given a better grade and a chance to take my final. I stated to the Dean of the school, that my opinion of "choosing life for the un-born" should have no negative impact on my grades. My teacher had her opinion and I had mine. The Dean agreed, and I was allowed to take the final. That moment in time, has shown me that if someone doesn't speak-up...who will? I could of stayed quiet, changed my topic and never protested, but this is too important! Signs of the times we live in Ladies. Make your vote count and speak up!!
