I know you’ve been told before but you still haven’t listened. Being pro-choice does not mean believing that women should use abortion as birth control. It means all modern medical services should be available to all women, and their personal intimate decisions are none of your business. You and your daughters should follow your beliefs, but leave me and my daughters alone.

Elizabeth Warren wanting to decriminalize border crossings. That would open up the borders and we would be overrun by people. How can anyone think this is a good idea? We can’t afford that.
