02 Sep Pro-Life Takes Center Stage at RNC
Posted at 15:37h in Uncategorized
“I was pro-choice my whole life, I have had an abortion. I couldn’t understand pro-life, and it never made sense until hearing your speech tonight. I felt the passion behind pro-life activists. You have changed my heart and changed my mind.”
This is what one woman tweeted to our friend Abby Johnson after her speech at the Republican National Convention.
Regardless of your political leanings, Abby’s invitation to participate in a major national political event is something to celebrate. The opportunity to share her powerful testimony with millions of television viewers is something to be grateful for.
This is far from the first time Abby has shared her story, or even the first time she’s shared it on the national stage. After all, her best-selling book, “Unplanned,” became the basis of the tremendously successful film of the same name–a project that we are so proud to have supported financially as the very first investor.
The League took this big step because that’s how important we believe Abby’s message is. And now, with the opportunity to address millions of Americans in their living rooms, that message can impact hearts and minds all across the nation as we head into the 2020 presidential election.
