We’re a charitable Nation. We care for the poor, underprivileged, and help those who suffer. So, I ask: How can a caring Nation allow the killing of 6.2 million babies to continue, supported by government laws and tax dollars?
We’ve made strides to change racism, yet some still feel the sting of being judged for the color of their skin. Black Lives Matter re-protested this injustice that subtilty exists in parts of our society. Yet Black Lives Matter has been silent on the fact that more black lives are killed each year through abortion than any shootings by whites, blacks or police combined! In 2020, 14 black persons were killed by shootings, while 236,919 black babies were killed by abortion! Don’t black babies’ lives matter?
We care so much for some, yet discard the most helpless humans! We dismiss the fact that sex produces new life! It is ludicrous to think one can indulge in sexual activity and not run the possibility of creating another human life! Planned Parenthood makes a lot of money on abortion and selling baby parts! Women who undergo abortions often suffer physical and mental harm, and live with psychological scars for most of their lives! Do we care?
America stands for LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Deep within our soul, we know that without the right to life, all other rights don’t matter! We must care enough to heed these unheard cries. Stop killing unborn babies! Start adopting instead.
My name is Colleen O’Keefe, and I am a kindergarten teacher in Revere. There are several reasons why I think Alicia DelVento is the best candidate for our State Representative, but as a classroom teacher, her experience fighting for education is at the top of my list.
All our students deserve access to a high-quality education that meets each of their individual needs, and our teachers deserve to be heard as they navigate the challenges that come with delivering this instruction, particularly in a pandemic.
We need someone with the experience to fight for our students starting day one. Now more than ever, students’ social-emotional needs are a top priority. Our next Representative must understand that ALL students deserve access to high-quality education, and must not be afraid to step into our schools and speak with the educators and leaders who do this work every day. I am confident that Alicia DelVento is this person, and I look forward to giving her my vote on March 2nd.
