I chose to launch this project today, on Valentine's Day, purposefully. On this day, the day we celebrate the love we have for the special people in our lives, I am focusing my attention, my love, on every single human being on this planet. I love my fellow man, and it’s because of that love for you that I am choosing to share this information with you instead of remaining silent. The pro-choice movement is founded solely on the basis of love (though this fact sometimes gets forgotten because of the anger we express - anger that results from having to defend ourselves because we're viewed as dangerous members of society). Of course this movement is founded on our love for our children, but just as equally, it’s founded on the love we feel for our fellow man. We love you enough to speak out, knowing that in doing so we will become outcasts, branded as "dangerous" and "stupid."
It’s often stated that the pro-choice are a group of hysterical, anti-science moms, who have been led into ridiculous protest by former playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy. I hope you don’t truly believe that that’s what this is - and I say that, not as an insult to Jenny McCarthy. I respect the efforts Jenny has made for us. She is an appreciated member of our group but she is not our leader. Our leaders are a group of doctors and scientists who have been working tirelessly, to reach you, to teach you, to improve your health, and to protect your right to informed consent. Though you hear almost nothing about them in media (but you will learn about them here from me), they have been fighting for every single one of you, for way too long already, with little relief, with little support, and with little appreciation and gratitude for their efforts. They fight for you all because they care SO DEEPLY about humanity, because they swore an oath to serve you and because their conscience won’t allow them give up and stop. Unfortunately, when media does briefly mention their names, it’s usually only to bully, attack, insult and destroy their reputations. And yet despite that, knowing what lays ahead for them, these doctors CHOOSE to speak up and face the insults, the ridicule, and the bullying that THE WORLD unleashes on them. WHY? Why would they choose to bear that burden, when they could stay silent and maintain the respect of their peers and continue earning a tonne of money? It doesn't make any sense that they would be willing to give all of that up unless there was something really serious happening that would make enduring such a hardship worth it.
All I can hope for is that in the coming days, weeks and months, you might be willing to learn what concerns them so significantly, that they are choosing to face ongoing GLOBAL PUBLIC RIDICULE, for you.
