At the 2018 March for Life Conference and Youth Rally, we heard many inspiring stories embodying this year’s theme, “Love Saves Lives.”
One of these stories was shared by Christina Bennett. Christina is an outspoken voice in the pro-life movement.
After graduating from college with a degree in Business Communication she moved to D.C and joined the pro-life ministry of the Justice House of Prayer and Bound4Life. Christina is a policy analyst at the Family Institute of Connecticut, and a speaker for the National Black Pro-Life Coalition.
In a biographical piece for Live Action News, Christina writes: “In the early 1980s, I was scheduled to be aborted. In a hospital in the city of Hartford, Connecticut, I had an appointment to die. A janitor approached my mother and spoke to her, giving her the strength to walk out.”
Watch Christina share more about her story, and the loving choice her mother made that saved Christina’s life.
Christina’s words are beautiful and inspiring –>>
“My mother’s love saved my own life. Love is more than a feeling, love is more than an emotion; love is a decision, love is an action, love is something we do because we care about other people. It is a sacrifice we make on behalf of other people; that we think of them better than we think of ourselves. That’s what my mother did for me; a loving act that has now allowed me to love other people. I’ve been able to work with women and see the lives of children saved because my mom saved my life.”
Thank you Christina for sharing your story and heroic love of your mother. Love truly does save lives.
