Last week actress Amy Brenneman, who filed a brief in opposition to abortion clinics in Texas being required to maintain basic health clinic standards, said she did not regret an abortion she had as a young woman.
Today we offer this link to an article containing the full text of a letter to Ms. Brenneman written by Congresswoman Diane Black -TN. Rep. Black was a nurse for 40 years before being elected to Congress. Her response is both bold and compassionate as her words remind us that women must survive to birth to have rights, and that their gender all too often condemns them to early death.

The simple truth is that we’ve lost control of our own borders, and no nation can do that and survive.
