Love in Action: 2019 Fundraising Banquet, feat. Stacey Dash

 

 

 

When Stacey Dash began her presentation to our full banquet hall, Thursday night on October 24th, no one knew what was coming. To say we received the gritty and decisive image of courageous love in action would be an understatement.

She did not toss off slogans. She didn't even take the easy route of talking about her challenges working in Hollywood as an African-American, pro-life woman.

She looked us in the eye, and gave us the gift of her story.

Stacey Dash: "I pulled the IV out of my arm and started screaming I'm keeping my baby! My doctor calmed me...Let’s look and see to make sure everything is ok, he told me... I saw the ultrasound. I saw my son’s heartbeat. 

"He is 29 now. And that is all I have to say about what happened to bring me here to you today."

This next year, she can be seen on screen as a similarly courageous woman (if in different circumstances): our own Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School. 

Jefferson remains one of the most consistent, intelligent, and clear advocates for human life in our history.

We'd love to share Stacey's full speech with those of you who have supported our mission to protect human life this year in our Commonwealth. If you could not attend but would still like to be included in the legacy of those who have given to end abortion and violence against our vulnerable in Massachusetts, you can still make a secure donation here.

Stacey: "God gave me love in action. My children. My son was more than a clump of tissue resting in the lining of my uterus. He was more."
