What do you say about someone whose contribution to your life, and the lives of all women, is invaluable?

They have one child and now she finds out she is pregnant. With her husband gone and not much family support, the economic presures to the government's free elective abortion are overwhelming. Unless, we the people, say we care, because we do.
