Patricia Heaton is one of the few Hollywood actresses who isn’t shy about her pro-life position.
An Emmy award-winning actress on “The Middle” and formerly “Everybody Loves Raymond,” Heaton often uses her Twitter page to speak out for unborn babies. Last week, Heaton shared her support of a Washington, D.C. pregnancy resource center’s work on Twitter:
Choose, celebrate, support Life! Thanks Northwest Center! https://t.co/EAC6gtrXpO

According to CNS News, which originally reported about Heaton’s message, Northwest Center is a crisis pregnancy center and maternity home that provides women with life-affirming alternatives to abortion. On Monday, Heaton also tweeted a message celebrating the U.S. Supreme Court decision involving the Little Sisters of the Poor:
SUPPORT LIFENEWS! If you like this pro-life article, please help LifeNews.com with a donation!
Without relief, the Little Sisters would face millions of dollars in IRS fines because they cannot comply with the government’s HHS mandate, which requires they give their employees free access to contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs. The decision on Monday, while not a final outcome in the case, removes the threats of possible fines.
Heaton was raised Catholic and is a rare, vocal pro-life advocate in Hollywood. She also advocates for life as the honorary chairwoman of Feminists for Life, a pro-woman, pro-life group that works to find solutions to abortion that affirm the dignity of women.
In a past interview, Heaton said she often goes separate ways with her Hollywood friends on the abortion issue.
“I find it impossible to subscribe to a philosophy that believes that the destruction of human life is a legitimate solution to a problem that is mostly social, economic and psychological,” Heaton said. “In reality, most women ‘choose’ abortion because they believe they have no other choice.
“Women who experience unplanned pregnancy also deserve unplanned joy.”
