Entire societies can be changed by a conversation. One ordinary morning, Christina Bennett’s mother revealed a secret she kept hidden for decades. In the early 1980’s her mother had an appointment at Mt. Sinai hospital in Hartford, CT. Pregnant, alone and afraid, she scheduled an abortion. A counselor assured her she was making the right choice. Moments before the procedure, an African-American janitor saw her crying and said, “Do you want to have this baby?” “Yes,” she replied. “Then God will give you the strength” she said. Moments later the doctor called Christina’s mother into his office. She told him she changed her mind and wanted to leave. To her dismay, the doctor demanded she stay, insisted it was too late and told her she had to go through with the abortion. With strength from above, her mom walked out.
“My mother saved my life that day,” says Christina.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Our lives begin to die the day we become silent about things that matter’. Christina is alive today because a stranger refused to be silent. Her testimony encourages others to join in conversations and be the change our world needs.
With a B.S degree in Business Communications, Christina works for a non-profit organization that serves pregnant women and their families in crisis. She is a blogger at LiveActionNews and her work has appeared in LifeSiteNews, LifeNews and the Bound4Life blog.
"We especially appreciated how Christina reviewed information we sent her in advance about our organization and spoke with us before the event to make sure her speech reflected our services. Her speech was insightful, personal, and well-informed and we would definitely recommend her to other organizations!"
"Christina's speech was one of the best pro-life messages I have heard! She is the face of the baby many choose not to see.”
“My people were telling both she (Christina Bennett) and I that she was the best speaker we have had yet! We raised the most money that we have ever raised! It was an amazing night! She stayed on time. I loved her before when I heard her at the March but I tell you she is an absolute JOY! Thank you so much, I just had to let you know.”
