"I cannot thank you and others like you enough for standing up for what you believe in, because if it had not been for you, I may have made a horrible decision and terminated my pregnancy. My girl is my entire world . . . I can assure you that me and my daughter are proof of the power that you all have. Please do not stop what you are doing."
