Imagine you are a 13-year-old girl riding a Greyhound bus in Kansas. The nightmare becomes reality – you are raped by a 38-year-old stranger, seeDec. 31, 2016 Quad-City Times, page A9. Now your nightmare becomes a nine month, mind-warping, day by day, never ending life of misery.

At age 13, you have become pregnant via a rape on a Greyhound bus. Vice president-elect Mike Pence, President-elect Donald Trump and others, do not approve of abortion, even as a result of rape.

What about the innocent life of the victim? Why should these men, and those who vote in agreement with them, have the power to destroy the life of a 13-year-old little girl? She was only riding the Greyhound bus.
