Actress Patricia Heaton has been pro-life for decades and one of the main reasons for her pro-life advocacy is that she supports women.

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.

Yesterday and today, Heaton continued that pro-woman pro-life advocacy yesterday when she retweeted something from the March for Life looking forward to this month’s event where hundreds of thousands of pro-life people across the country will stand up for life. The march will be held January 27th in Washington.

The tweet reads: “Pro-life is pro-woman. We are FOR women at every stage in life. #prolife #whywemarch #prolifeprowoman” and Heaton added her own message o the re-tweet: “Yes please. #prolife #MarchForLife #prolifegen #prolifeprowoman.”

In another tweet, Heaton said: “Life begins at conception. Said every scientist ever.”

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.”
