Last night, actor Jared Leto received the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the movie, Dallas Buyers Club.
In his acceptance speech, Leto, perhaps inadvertently, made the case for life when one finds herself pregnant at an inopportune time:
In 1971, in Bossier City, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. That girl was my mother, and she’s here tonight. I just want to say, “I love you, Mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream.”
