They'll be arguing against Ethan.

Against him getting up the courage to kayak on his own for the first time.

Against just one more scoop of ice cream.

They'll be arguing against riding bikes with his sister in the church parking lot.

Against chai with Daddy and Aja.

They'll be arguing against the continued access to healthcare that took him from a dusky bluish-grey

to battery-powered pink.

Ethan is just one of the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions. His life, his wild and precious life? It matters. So do theirs. So does yours.

If you don't have a pre-existing condition yet, know that you are one diagnosis, one accident, one illness away from that changing forever. Which is why I'm fighting for you just as hard as I'm fighting for my own kid.

Disaster does not discriminate, and neither should our healthcare system. If we want to live in a pro-life country, we need to be standing shoulder to shoulder and arguing for a system that protects us all, not against it.

There are lives at stake.
I'm not willing to gamble my son's.
