MELANIE: I was 19 and I was pregnant. I wasn't married and my family was very poor. I had to make a choice. My sister helped me choose life. She took me in, cared for me, was by my side when my baby was born, and cried with me when I let her go. My sister is Heidi Heitkamp and I know she loves North Dakota as much as she loved my baby girl.
HEITKAMP: I'm Heidi Heitkamp, and I approve this message.
