10 Pro-Life Celebrities Who Aren't Afraid to Speak Up
Here are ten pro-life celebrities willing to speak up against abortion. Many have personal stories, or their view is steeped in faith. These aren’t the only brave celebrities, and we can pray that even more will come forward in the coming days.
1. Former President Donald Trump
When President Trump spoke at the March for Life rally, he was asked about changing his view to pro-life years ago and promising to select pro-life Supreme Court Justices, which he did. Trump said he became pro-life while watching a friend and his wife consider abortion.
2. Patricia Heaton
The Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle star, Heaton is an outspoken Christian on Twitter, where regularly she is attacked for her pro-life views. The title on a recent pro-life article read: “Actress Patricia Heaton: Standing Strong for Pro-life Cause in Hollywood.” She’s been named an honorary chair of Feminists for Life of America. A pro-life website ran an article that said, “Celebrities such as actress Patricia Heaton are using their platforms to promote a life-affirming message.” Live Action described her, “Heaton is one of a few pro-life celebrities, and a breath of fresh air in the industry. Her message not only promotes life, but the good work that pregnancy centers do.”
3. Jack Nicholson
Writer, director, producer, and actor Jack Nicholson has received the most Oscar nominations of any male actor. Nicholson’s mother was pregnant as a teenager. Pressured and forced into an abortion, which she eventually refused, shaped Nicholson’s view on abortion. “I don’t have the right to any other view. My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my life.”
4. Kathy Ireland
A model popular in the ‘80s and ‘90s, appearing on the covers of magazines like Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, and an actress in multiple television shows and movies, Kathy Ireland now has a multi-billion-dollar clothing line. She isn’t afraid to be pro-life. She’s advocated for the defunding of Planned Parenthood and keynoted at a Council for Life Luncheon.
5. Martin Sheen
A liberal Democrat on most issues, famous actor Martin Sheen is pro-life. He’s a Roman Catholic pro-lifer, even being named a “Remarkable Pro-Life Man” by Feminists for Life. He has also spoken out about his wife’s conception from a rape. Her mother considered aborting her and, after the birth, dumping her in the Ohio River, but instead chose to give her daughter, Sheen’s wife, life!
6. Kirk Cameron
Christian actor Kirk Cameron tells his family’s story that his wife Chelsea “almost didn’t exist because her mother considered aborting her. Chelsea was one doctor appointment away from not existing.” But her birthmother chose life for her, and she was adopted. “Our first four children are also adopted. They were ‘this close’ to not being here, and if my wife Chelsea had not been born, our two natural-born children would not exist either.”
Cameron has an upcoming film “Lifemark” that highlights the life of the unborn and “the beauty of adoption.” He was also the keynote speaker at the 2022 March for Life where he told the crowd, “We’ve got our marching orders from the Executive in heaven, and those mandates tell us to continue loving God, loving one another, and standing for life.”
7. Tim Tebow
Tebow is a Christian who played in the NFL for the New York Jets and drew both criticism and praise when he wrote Bible verses on his cheeks during games, prayed on the field, and is a vocal pro-lifer. He appeared in a pro-life ad with his mother during Super Bowl XLIV telling the story of how his mother chose life for him, her fifth child. Tim relates, “Even when the doctors said it could and might cost her life, she decided she was going to trust God.”
8. Jim Caviezel
Caviezel is a Catholic who appeared as Jesus in the movie The Passion of the Christ and has starred in several other feature films and television shows. He’s an outspoken advocate for pro-life and speaks out against abortion and stem cell research. Caviezel has called abortion the ultimate evil, saying, “Abortion goes much further: when the mother herself kills her son she goes against her own nature, against her own instinct. People talk about ‘choice’, but when a woman does that, when she destroys the life of her unborn child, then, we have arrived at the limit. The level cannot go higher regarding evil.”
9. Elizabeth Hasselbeck
Hasselbeck recently returned to the TV program The View, where she was previously the voice of a conservative at the mostly liberal table. In her guest visit she dove into the abortion issue opposing the other pro-abortion hosts: "I believe our Creator assigned value to life, and that those lives have plan and purpose over them as designed by God that are not limited to the circumstances of conception, nor the situations they're born into," Hasselbeck said. "I do think there's options out there. There are thousands of agencies that wrap around women that might not be able to care for the baby once born or may not want the baby when they're pregnant, or maybe it was unexpected and they're in a hard situation, but that will come around at no cost and wrap around you. I might not change your minds, but I hope women out there now know to look for the nonprofits, look for the agencies that help you create a birth plan and match you with an adoptive family."
10. Andrea Bocelli
Blind Italian opera singer Bocelli made a video in 2010 telling his story that his mother was encouraged to have an abortion when she had appendicitis during pregnancy, but chose against aborting. He told the Italian newspaper II Foglio, “Because of my personal convictions as a devout Catholic, I am not only fighting against something, I am fighting for something - and I am for life.” He didn’t want his testimony to be considered merely anti-abortion, but also in support of life.
