Supermodel Kathy Ireland told a group of pro-lifers that they should continue to “speak the truth and never let anyone silence you,” Life News reports.
The former Sports Illustrated (SI) swimsuit cover model considered herself a “Pro-Choice Christian” until she dove into the medical books of her husband, an emergency room doctor. She used those science texts to even change her husband’s view on abortion. Then she did something many told her not to do—go on Bill Maher’s HBO show “Politically Incorrect” and take the pro-life view.
On that show she laid out the science of each individual having its genetic blueprint at the moment of conception, the DNA. “According to the law of biogenesis, all life comes from pre-existing life. Each species reproduces after its own kind. Therefore human beings can only reproduce and give birth to other human beings. We don’t start out as one species and suddenly become human,” Ireland explained.
The 50-year-old mother of three admitted she did not want to be pro-life at all in those early days of scientific discovery. So she called the people who got her to be pro-choice in the first place, Planned Parenthood, and told them to give her their best argument. This is what they told her: It’s just a clump of cells and if you get it early enough it doesn’t even look like a baby.
Ireland has appeared 13 times in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
