It might come as a surprise, but I am Pro-life, but I am Pro-choice. I am even against the death penalty, Hence I am completely pro-life. I do think that it is a good thing to be pro-conception, but it is NOT MY PLACE to tell anyone else in the LAND OF THE FREE how to live their lives. Anyhow, please enjoy this read. It’s a unique take on this complicated subject.

Cecilia Brown is many things: a mother, grandmother, Green party member, vegetarian and Buddhist.

She is also ‘Lesbian, Liberal and Pro-Life,’ which was the title of the speech she gave at the event held by the Respect for Life club.

Brown, the president of the Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians, addressed students in Tognino Hall on Wednesday, Mar. 20, speaking about her experiences as a liberal lesbian with pro-life views.

As a teenager, Brown found herself unexpectedly pregnant, and was persuaded by a nurse practitioner to have an abortion.

Brown described the painful experience that she went through, but warned that it did not solve any of her problems.

She still dealt with the repercussions of growing up in a broken home with an abusive and homophobic father who forced her to hide her homosexuality.

After the abortion, Brown dropped out of school and turned to drinking and drugs, what she described as her “wild life,” that eventually led to her second pregnancy three years later at the age of 21.

This time, she decided to keep the baby, and nine months later her daughter Margaret was born.
