Just days before hundreds of thousands of people will gather in the nation’s capital for the annual March for Life, pro-lifers on the West Coast will get their chance to celebrate the beauty and dignity of every human life at OneLifeLA, the first-ever large-scale pro-life event in The City of Angels, on Jan. 17.
The event, which is sponsored by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, will include a walk, entertainment, and a host of renowned speakers who will discuss pro-life topics ranging from abortion and adoption to human trafficking and euthanasia.
Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation, Townhall columnist, and keynote speaker of the event, will debut a new video ad, “Never Picture Perfect,” which addresses what happens when those who are considered “imperfect” are discarded.
“Life is never picture perfect. And that’s what makes it so beautiful,” Bomberger, an adoptee and adoptive father, said in a statement. “I was born as a result of rape, yet my courageous biological mother chose life and made a loving plan of adoption. We all find throughout our lives that we are stronger than our perceived or actual circumstances.”
Sadly, with more than 200,000 abortions done each year, California has the highest number of abortions of any state in the nation, making this event particularly important in spreading the prolife community’s message that every life matters—planned or unplanned, perfect or “imperfect.”
