I am vulnerable

I am entitlement

I am diversity

I was a fetus

I am evidence-based

I am science-based

 

You are vulnerable

You are entitlement

You are diversity

You are transgender

You were a fetus

You are evidence-based

You are science-based

 

We are vulnerable

We are entitlement

We are diversity

We are transgender

We were fetuses

We are evidence-based

We are science-based
