Manktelow Votes Against Abortion, Encourages Adoption

A statement from Assemblyman Brian Manktelow (R,C,I,Ref-Lyons)

“Today I voted against the Reproductive Health Act because I believe there is always another option. I know two women who chose not to abort their children, and though I have never met them, I see them each and every day in my two eldest children who are adopted. We talk about family first here in the Assembly and because of these two women, I was given a family to put first. As a father, I will always defend my children and put their life before my own. I will forever appreciate what they did to give me the opportunity to raise such beautiful and wonderful children.  I’d like to encourage more people to pursue this option so more families can grow like mine.”
