|Broward County Right to Life||
You're invited to a celebration of what friends like you do to defend the unborn and an opportunity to do even more. It's the 42nd annual Broward Right to Life Benefit Breakfast on Sat. Nov. 14 at 9 am.
Our speaker, Rebecca Kiessling, is a pro-life lawyer and advocate who was conceived out of a brutal rape at knife-point. Adopted just after birth, she met her biological mother at age 18.

Her mother, Rebecca learned, had gone to two back-alley abortionists in 1968/69 and nearly aborted Rebecca. That was when abortion was still illegal in Rebecca’s home state of Michigan and there was no exception for rape.
Alive Today Because of Pro-Life Voters
“The fact that I’m alive today has to do with choices that were made by our society at large, people who fought to ensure abortion was illegal in Michigan at the time — even in cases of rape, people who argued to protect my life, and people who voted pro-life.”
Today, she is a compelling voice for the protection of all unborn children – regardless of how they were conceived. “As a child of rape,” she says, “I can help to put a face, a voice, and a story to this issue.”
Persuaded Gov. Rick Perry
Politically influential, she has persuaded former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, and many legislators across the U.S., Canada and Europe against exceptions for rape in pro-life legislation. And she’s helped pregnant rape victims all around the world to choose life for their children.
Rebecca is a wife, mother of five, attorney, and an international prolife speaker. The Founder and President of Save The 1, she is also the National Spokeswoman for Personhood USA and for National Personhood Alliance.
“The fact that I’m alive today has to do with . . . people who argued to protect my life, and people who voted pro-life.”
We hope you will join us for the Benefit Breakfast, Nov. 14, 9 am at the Banquet Hall at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, 2101 W. Cypress Creek Rd.
