Patricia Heaton is one of the rare celebrities who openly defends unborn babies’ right to life.

An Emmy award winning actress on “The Middle” and formerly “Everybody Loves Raymond,” Heaton will be a featured presenter at an upcoming pro-life event in Los Angeles, Angelus reports

The OneLife LA event also will include TV personality Rosie Rivera, Catholic Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, Christian music artist Jamie Grace and others in the celebration of the beauty and dignity of every human life from conception to natural death, according to the report. It is scheduled to begin at noon Jan. 21 at the La Placita Olvera in downtown Los Angeles.

“When a woman finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, the world offers her the reality of isolation and we must offer the truth of community, hope and love,” said Heaton, who also spoke at the 2016 pro-life rally.

In the past few weeks, Heaton also has been tweeting her support for the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and other pro-life projects.

“Life begins at conception. Said every scientist ever. #ProScience #ProWoman #ProLife” she tweeted on Jan. 6.

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.
