Nikki Haley on Abortion
I'm pro-life because someone saved my husband's life
When [my future husband Michael] was three, he and his our siblings were removed from their home by the state. His biological mother got in a car accident and suffered a brain injury.
She was no longer able to care for the kids, so Michel and his two sisters were put in foster care in one home, and two others went to different homes nearby.
When he was four, he and his younger sister were adopted by an amazing couple, Bill and Carole Haley, who couldn't have children of their own.
In politics people assume that if you're a
Republican you're prolife because the party tells you to be. I'm prolife because I got a chance to spend every day with the love of my life knowing that I am blessed that someone saved his life. I would be lost without him.

Every life is blessed by God
I believe every life has a value and is blessed by God--my husband was adopted and my pro-life convictions stem from the fact I feel the blessings of that value every day knowing someone chose life for him. I see it every day in my two children as
I watch them grow. My hope is that we continue to encourage and work towards educating that value of life to everyone.
