Jack Nicholson

jack nicolson“My opinions on abortion were formed by personal experience.  I discovered the woman I thought was my sister was actually my mother, and the woman I knew as my mother was my grandmother. My mother became pregnant as a teenager and was encouraged to have an abortion, even back in 1937, but she chose life for me….it made me pro-life.” #jacknicholson

Kenny Chesney

kenny chesney“Chesney’s pro-life advocacy is in the song he has called one of his favorites, ‘There Goes My Life’. Story of a teenager whose girlfriend gets pregnant and has the baby rather than having an abortion. Iin the end, he realizes how much of a blessing his child is.” #kennychesney

Jordan Sparks

Jim Caviezel

jim caviezel“Being Pro-Life is important to me. How are we so arrogant to not think of the 51.5 million babies who have died in this country… Look, I am for helping women. I just don’t see abortion as helping women. And I don’t love my career that much to say, I’m going to remain silent on this.” #jimcaviezel

Phil Robertson

phil robertson“Duck Dynasty’s Robertson in what appears to be a religious sermon – declares his pro-life stance on the issue of abortion. When discussing the ethics of, and that there’s a debate on the issue, he asks, “What in the world happened to us?.” #duckdynasty #philrobertson

Kevin Sorbo

kevin sorbo“Sorbo recently tweeted his support for the new Gosnell Movie that will profile the gruesome late-term abortion practitioner. This is something that my wife and I are behind because we believe in this project. It’s long overdue for this story to be told, it wasn’t covered by the media nearly as much as other murder cases were.” #KevinSorbo

Mel Gibson

mel gibson“God is the only one who knows how many children we should have, and we should be ready to accept them. One can’t decide for oneself who comes into this world and who doesn’t. That decision doesn’t belong to us.” #melgibson

Patricia Heaton

patricia heaton“Every 36 seconds in America a women lays her body down, forced to choose abortion out of a lack of practical resources and emotional support. Abortion is a reflection that society has failed women.”  #patriciaheaton

Kathy Ireland

kathy_ireland“I was told it was a lose-lose situation and would kill my business to pronounce I am Pro-Life. But I thought if I did this maybe one woman watching wouldn’t kill her baby. We need to support these women who are in a crisis pregnancy… I have no choice but to defend the most vulnerable among us.” #kathyireland
