If you care for and love a female in your life-daughter, wife, mother, sister, friend-and you believe she should be allowed to make decisions about her health and reproductive rights, if you believe she should decide who touches her sexually, if you believe she should be treated with respect and paid the same as a male counterpart, then you should vote for Hillary.

If you care about boys and girls and you are concerned they grow up treating others with respect and kindness and you believe the Oval Office occupant should model that kindness and respect, then you should vote for Hillary.

If you care about the principles on which this country was founded and believe that all people are created equal and have the right to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" and you believe that women, children, and other refugees fleeing war-torn countries should be welcomed with kindness and not labeled terrorists, then you should vote for Hillary.

If you care about veterans and their families, and if you believe they should be treated with respect and provided the help they so clearly deserve, and if you believe those who have been captured, wounded, or have died while serving should never be impugned, then you should vote for Hillary.

If you care that all people the world over deserve and should receive needed health services, and if you believe that those suffering from HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases should receive life-sustaining drugs, then you should vote for Hillary.

If you care that future generations have a world that will sustain and nurture life and that we need to tackle climate change head on, then you should for Hillary.

If you care that children should be able to go to school without the threat of some violent or deranged person shooting them and you believe that we can protect the Second amendment while strengthening our gun laws, then you should vote for Hillary.

If you have a beating heart and care about others, then you should vote for Hillary.
