MARCH FOR LIFE 2008 GUEST SPEAKER TELLS NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE: I had every right to live!
Julie Makimaa sat quietly at the National Right to Life conference a few years back, listening to their strategy about
including rape and incest exceptions in any abortion bans that states would promote that year. After hearing all their
arguments and finding herself steaming inside, this bold woman stood up and stated in no uncertain terms that she
disputed their claims.
Julie Makimaa told National Right to Life that they were wrong, that her mother did the wise thing and gave her
up for adoption. She continued that she was very glad she had lived to meet her mother, Lee Ezell, and to be able to tell this
confused organization that they needed to re-think their flawed strategy.
Colorado Right to Life is pleased to present Julie as March for Life 2008 guest speaker January 19, on the West Steps of the
State Capitol at 1:30 P.M. As a woman who agrees with our statement of purpose that abortion is always wrong and that every life is
worthy of protection, from the moment of fertilization, Julie states:
"Many people believe abortion is morally justifiable and medically necessary for women pregnant through rape and incest.
I encourage everyone who holds this position or who has doubts about the best solution for women in these situations, to attend the rally on
January 19th. I guarantee you'll gain a new understanding of the value of every life and the benefits for women who choose life."
"The promotion of abortion for children conceived in rape or incest is society's way of punishing an innocent victim for the crimes of another."
Kristi Burton, sponsor of the Personhood Amendment will speak briefly and Tony Funderburk will sing his song
Colorado Families Against Planned Parenthood founder, Will Duffy, will encourage the crowd to fight efforts to build the
biggest death camp for babies in the nation at PP's new Stapleton location in north Denver.
March for Life - January 19, 2008 - West steps of the State Capitol - 1:30 p.m.
