The central tenet of the pro-life movement is that an unborn child — from conception — should have the same protections as a person who has already been born; no more, no less. That is why #EqualityForAll is inconsistent with the notion that #AbortionIsAWomansRight /1

.@RepHardy This generation has no room for bigotry, discrimination, or the degradation of human rights. As an openly Gay Black Woman who served in the military, reaching the ranks of Lieutenant Colonel, I am calling you out.#BlueWave2018 #LGBTQRights #EqualityForAll #Enough (1/3)
This is 2018 and we will not retreat from the progress we've made toward FULL EQUALITY! #BlueWave2018 #LGBTQRights #EqualityForAll #RideTheWave (2/3)
As a pastor, I joined social justice advocates who fought to end DADT and we WON! As a member of Congress, I'll keep fighting the homophobic demagoguery seeking to turn back the clock on Human Rights and WE WILL WIN!#BlueWave2018 #LGBTQRights #EqualityForAll #RideTheWave (3/3)
