Letter: Thankful for life

Oregon has a billboard near the airport proclaiming that Oregon is an “abortion friendly state.” I wish Washington had a billboard that our state is a life-friendly state. I want to express my thanks to my mother and father for choosing to give me life instead of ending my life before birth. Every person living this day should be thankful for the same reason.
