Since 1973, over thirty five long years ago, millions upon millions — well over 55,000,000 - babies have been slain under the guise of "choice." Choosing death is never a good or acceptable option, and some good people in California have worked hard to give women real choices that favor life.

Other states should draw inspiration from the commitment and perseverance of those behind the California Equal Rights Amendment. This is not about party affiliation or ideology. This is about recognizing the sanctity of human life and citizens' obligation to enact laws to protect it. I applaud the cause of the California Equal Rights Amendment and praise its supporters for not sitting idly by, and instead, taking action to protect those who cannot defend themselves.
