“I found out I was pregnant at the age of 18, I had just been accepted to College. It was terrifying, really scary. I now know what its like to go through a crisis pregnancy. Thankfully the 8th Amendment is there to protect babies like my little Adam. I came here today to highlight just how many lives are saved by the 8th amendment every year. There are real faces and real people behind these figures!”
