Clearly Jensen’s remarkable story of facing the odds stacked against her due to a failed abortion are a massive inspiration to the pro-life movement. Her monumental life is a perfect example of the lives that anti-abortionist’s aim to protect. Jensen is a perfect example of Marquis’ “future-like-ours” theory, which is Marquis’ central argument against abortion. Marquis argues “The loss of one’s life deprives one of all the experiences, activities, projects and enjoyments that otherwise would have constituted one’s future” (Marquis 189). Jensen shows this clearly, as a survivor of abortion, all the things she has done with the life she has been given were attempted to be stopped with an abortion. Even with the abortion providing massive setbacks in Jensen’s life, she has still lived a life of happiness, meaning and international recognition.
