DAGEN MCDOWELL (CO-HOST): To Shelley Thornton, she represents life. And I think that looking back, even a few years from now all, we will look at legalized abortion, as many people already do, as legal infanticide and murder. And it will be a stain, the fact that it's been legal for as long as it has been and so widely available. It will be a stain on this nation for centuries to come in the way that the eugenics movement was. My great-aunt Marguerite was sterilized against her will by the state of Virginia because she was mentally disabled. That practice did not end in this country fully until 1979. So only 40 years ago. So, I think that this is a greater tragedy and a greater pox on this country. And I think Shelley Thornton stands for the future, and that is giving birth and putting these precious children up for adoption and giving them a home.
